Chickahominy Water TrailJohn Smith explored the upper Chickahominy River in December 1607. He left his boat and seven of his crew at Apocant, the highest town on the river in the upper part of what is today the lake. Two crew members departed with Smith and two Chickahominy guides in a borrowed canoe. Twenty miles or so above Apocant, Smith was captured by a group of many bowmen from several tribes which he took to be a hunting party. Smith remained in the custody of paramount chief Powhatan for a month before returning to Jamestown.
