[ARCHIVED] Ragged Mountain Boat Storage Restrictions

Boat at Ragged Mountain Natural Area

August 16, 2021

All boats currently being stored on site will need to be removed by Friday, September 17.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The City of Charlottesville will begin enforcing the prohibition on storage of private boats at the Ragged Mountain Reservoir in mid-September of 2021.

All boats currently being stored on site will need to be removed by Friday, September 17.  After that date, the City will remove boats from the reservoir and take them to Pen Park at 1300 Pen Park Road and store them for pick up until October 31, at which time they will be considered abandoned and will be put up for auction.

Charlottesville City Code of Ordinances: Chapter 18 – Parks and Recreation – Article III – Ragged Mountain Natural Area Rules of Use, Sec. 18-25 states that storing boats or other personal property at the natural area is prohibited.

Boats without gasoline engines are still allowed to be used at the reservoir, however they cannot be left on site.
