About the Park

Caledon State Park is a 2,584 acre land parcel, administered by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, State Parks Division. The park is dedicated to the preservation of native plants and animals.

Caledon is home to one of the largest summer populations of American Bald Eagles in Virginia. It is one of only three areas in public ownership in Virginia which provides substantial undisturbed shoreline to support large numbers of foraging eagles.

Caledon is also a National Natural Landmark due to an impressive stand of eastern hardwood climax forest. The park is home to a wealth of native plants with over 500 species identified.

Caledon has recorded 122 species of birds, 21 species of mammals, 39 species of reptiles and amphibians and at least 12 species of fish.

The park offers visitors a unique opportunity to view the bald eagles in their natural habitat while providing education through exhibits and programming.
