Caledonia State Park

The 1,125-acre Caledonia State Park is in Adams and Franklin counties, midway between Chambersburg and Gettysburg on US 30. Caledonia is in the northernmost section of the Blue Ridge Mountains known locally as South Mountain. Blue Mountain, the easternmost ridge of the Allegheny Mountains, is to the west and northwest of the park across a large low, rolling, fertile valley known as the Great Valley. South Mountain is mostly composed of a hard rock called quartzite. The valleys on either side are underlined with limestone and shale. The soil is ideal for fruit production, proven by the abundance of orchards in the surrounding area.

Even though we have lived in the Chambersburg area all of our lives we never really explored Caledonia very much. While exploring the DCNR site we found a hike we thought might be interesting so we made reservations and went. We thoroughly enjoyed the hike. The guide was very friendly, engaging and informative. I only wish I could remember his name to give him credit here for a job well done. We will definitely be exploring and experiencing more of what the DCNR has to offer at the various state parks in our area. Thanks for your efforts and we look forward to meeting more of your staff.
