Yes. A boat, canoe, or kayak can be placed into the reservoirs. Motors no larger than 10-horsepower may be used. If a boat with a larger motor is put in the reservoir, the larger motor must be disabled. All boats used on Norfolk reservoirs are required to have a Norfolk Boat Permit. For information on obtaining a permit, see the Boat Permit page.
Types of boats that are not allowed in the reservoirs are stand up paddleboards, sailboats, houseboats, inflatables, and personal water craft (ex: jet skis), surfboards and similar devices.
