Jordan Point Yacht Haven, 101 Jordan Point Rd. , N. Prince George, Virginia 23860
Jordan Point is located at the southern foot of the Benjamin Harrison bridge spanning the historic lower James River. From this point, boaters have easy access to both protected, tidal fresh water and the Chesapeake Bay further down river. Not only popular with power and sail boaters, the lower James has also gained a national reputation for producing huge blue catfish and many other species. Best of all, Jordan Point is only a short drive from Richmond or Fredericksburg.
