MASON NECK STATE PARK

 
Mason Neck State Park is located on the Mason Neck peninsula in southeastern Fairfax County, Virginia.  The Park's wetlands, forest, open water, ponds, and fields make it ideal for environmental study and observation of wildlife, particularly bald eagles, osprey, geese, ducks, swans, and other birds living on or near the Potomac River, Kane's Creek, and Belmont Bay.  The Park has hiking trails, three miles of paved multi-use trails, a large picnic area, a playground, a car-top canoe/kayak launch, and a visitor center.  Canoe, kayak, and bicycle rentals are available.

The Friends of Mason Neck State Park work to conserve, enhance, and interpret the Park's natural, educational, recreational, cultural and historic resources.  We have fun doing worthy things!  We sponsor picnics, kayak trips, show-and-tell, volunteer activities, and other special events.   

We had a WONDERFUL Eagle-watching Cruise on April 26! See photos taken by Friends during the Cruise - close views of 14 Bald Eagles (and other beautiful birds and wildlife) from the Occoquan River and Belmont Bay around Mason Neck State Park. Thanks to Friend Rob Hartwell for arranging the trip! Missed this one? We will do it again soon. Watch this website or join the Friends to receive email invitations.
                                         
Ospreys have returned to Mason Neck for the season!  Watch for them when you visit the Park -
