The 1,125-acre Caledonia State Park is in Adams and Franklin counties, midway between Chambersburg and Gettysburg along the Lincoln Highway, US 30. The park has opportunities for outdoor recreational activities including:

  • 10 miles of hiking trails through forests and historic areas
  • A picnic area with shade trees and picnic tables
  • A swimming pool
  • Fishing in the┬áThe East Branch Conococheague and Rocky Mountain creeks and Carbaugh Run
  • Hunting during established seasons
  • An 18-hole golf course
  • Tent and trailer camp sites

The park is nestled within South Mountain, the northern terminus of the well-known Blue Ridge Mountain of Maryland and Virginia. Within South Mountain there are four state parks and 84,000 acres of state forest land waiting to be explored and enjoyed. The soils on either side of South Mountain are ideal for fruit production, proven by the abundance of orchards in the surrounding area.

During the summer season, park education programs are scheduled for park visitors of all ages. Programs explore the history and environment of the area, include guided walks and campfire programs. Program schedules are available at the park office. Special requests are welcome and may be directed to the park office.

The Thaddeus Steven Blacksmith Shop has operating hours during the summer. Visitors can tour and, on occasion, visit with a guest blacksmith as he hammers out iron products.
