The Appomattox River is a popular destination for whitewater rafting, canoeing, fishing and bird watching. It flows from Lake Chesdin through the region and joins the James River at Hopewell, where the two rivers once served as the pathway for early English settlers into Virginia, and became the largest port in the nation during the Civil War.

The Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) has developed a series of Blueways (navigable water) and Greenways (hiking trails) that reveal the beauty of the Appomattox River.
