Outdoor RecreationEdit

Arcadia sits just off the exit of Interstate 81 and is in close proximity to both the George Washington National Forest and a number of great trout fishing streams, including Jennings Creek and North Creek. Arcadia is also bounded by the James River and is a key access point for kayaking, canoeing, and other types of recreational activities along the river. As such, Arcadia is well-known in the Roanoke Valley as a great recreational place for hiking, fishing, hunting, and watersport activities.


There are a few companies that do business in the Arcadia area, including Shell Oil Company, Twin River Outfitters, the Watstull Inn, and Foot of the Mountain Café, a popular local restaurant.
