Riverwalk Landing Piers

Stretching 34 miles and feeding into the Chesapeake Bay, the York River is the hub of activity along the Yorktown waterfront. Dock your boat at our public piers to take advantage of our beautiful beaches, restaurants, and special events!

The Riverwalk Landing Piers, located at 425 Water Street, provide docking for overnight stays and transient boaters. Tie up and step ashore to grab a bite to eat or do a little shopping. Take advantage of prime parking on the water for our outdoor concerts, Yorktown Market Days, and festivals.

Notes for Boaters: The piers provide 1,200 linear feet of dockage. Electrical, water, and sewer pump-out are available pier side. The concrete floating pier system allows for a constant 28" above-water elevation. The depths at dockside range from 27' to 50' on well over 1,000 feet of dock frontage space. 

A second pier is located behind Water Street Grille and provides additional docking. This smaller pier offers similar amenities as the T-pier. Mooring balls are also available for use if desired. A private shower and restroom facility is also provided for our guests who arrive by water.


Reservations for docking space are welcome and can be made year-round by contacting the dockmaster by phone at 757-890-3370 or email.
