Key Bridge Boathouse

River Access Point

Photo of Key Bridge Boathouse

Canoes and rowboats are available for rent at this location under the Whitehurst Freeway just below Key Bridge in Georgetown. Several good fishing spots are found nearby, including the river south of Key Bridge, Roosevelt Island, and the C&O Canal above Georgetown. Smallmouth bass prefer the less brackish water above Key Bridge. The next available spot for boat rentals and good fishing is at Fletcher's Boathouse, two miles upstream.

For many years, this site was known as Jack's Boats. In 2012, the National Park Service, owner of the waterfront land, did not renew its lease with Jack's and contracted with a different vendor.
