Occoquan Regional Park


Occoquan Regional Park is a multi-use park situated on the Occoquan River just off I-95. Hidden by the baseball fields and fishing docks are an impressive matrix of nature trails and wildlife viewing opportunities. Hiking trails allow access to mature eastern deciduous forest, with an assortment of woodland birds that is impressive, given the site’s proximity to I-95. During spring migration, a variety of warblers may be seen stopping through. The Occoquan River, which becomes crowded with waterfowl during the winter months, may be viewed from the decks at the marina. For those who wish to view by boat, the boat launch and marina give you easy access to the Occoquan River.

Amidst the 400 acres of recreational amenities are historic brick kilns and the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial. Occoquan Regional Park also gives you entry to several key hiking trails, including the Fairfax Cross-County Trail and Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail.



Physical Address: 9751 Ox Road, Lorton, VA 22079

From I-95 take exit 160 and go north on SR 123 for 1.6 miles to the park entrance on the right.
