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 are just concluding our first year as a Friends group! Come help us celebrate at our free Birthday Picnic, Meeting, and Fall Twilight Hike, beginning at 5:00 pm on September 6. Get more details and register at the EVENTS tab on this website.
