North Landing River in Virginia

Trip Overview

We entered the water at the draw bridge at North Landing road, paddled up the intercoastal waterway to the bridge at Centerville Turnpike.

Minimal current, winds at 5 or less. Air temps high 50's, not sure water temp. Easy paddle: 5 miles up and 5 miles back.

Explored Boy Scout camp off Centerville Turnpike.
Discovered power boat in weeds, boat appears to be in good shape.
Found a dirt/manmade boat ramp approx. 1/2 way between bridges, would like to launch here next time if we can find it from road. (Mount Pleasent)


no fees, although we did talk to the bridge tender prior to launch.


Virginia Beach, Kempsville area. Travel east on Indian River road to a right on North Landing road. Launch site is at bridge over intercoastal waterway.
