They do close at dark but I'm pretty sure you can leave your truck and trailer there overnight. You just can't load up and leave the park once they are closed. You'll have to wait until morning. We used to stay out overnight and leave our chit there just about every weekend a couple of years ago.

Another alternative.....

The road getting there after you turn from rt1 is narrow and winding, but the ramp is nice. We launch a 38' there all the time.

I'm sure the guy from the Rappahannock with the sleeper Velocity that dropped everyone's jaw last year will be there.

When that formula runs a 100 mph i would be impressed. And i can get my little hands around a three throttles. Just like putting them around a little hottie.

Aslong as he puts the slipper pole through the front of the boat while he's driving it.
