The best camping near Caledon State Park guide

Overview

About

The towering trees and paintbrush stroke leaves of Caledon State Park will have you seeing green. Lace up those well-worn boots and trek one of ten designated trails designated for hiker's feet only. Four multi-purpose trails offer the opportunity to bike through the picturesque marshlands and scenic wooded areas that characterize the park. Fishing may not be available at Caledon Marsh or James Pond, but a short trip to Potomac River will remedy that. If you're looking for a slice of history, hop over to the nearby town of Fredericksburg, where the King George County Museum calls the town its home. As the leaves turn to a brilliant red and orange, Caledon State Park is the ideal spot to enjoy nature at its finest.

Notable campgrounds

  • Primitive Campsites: Nestled along the Potomac River, these sites offer a peaceful retreat into nature, accessible by hiking, biking, or paddling.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, as the primitive campsites are in high demand for their unique riverfront location.
  • Be flexible with your dates to increase your chances of finding an available campsite.
  • Consider visiting during the off-peak season for a quieter experience and easier reservations.
  • Explore nearby camping options if Caledon State Park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Caledon State Park is from April to October when the weather is mild and the park's flora and fauna are most active. Winter months can be less ideal due to colder temperatures and limited visitor center hours.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's operating hours, open from 8am to dusk, and plan your visit accordingly.
  • Visitor center hours vary seasonally, so confirm the schedule before your trip.
  • Remember to pack out all trash, as the primitive campsites do not have trash removal services.
  • Accessibility is a priority; electric wheelchairs and scooters are allowed on trails for those with disabilities.
  • No potable water is available at the campsites, so bring sufficient water for drinking and cooking.
