Culpeper Battlefields State Park

Culpeper Battlefields State Park is Virginia’s 43rd state park.  The new park will enable visitors to experience more than 2,200 acres of historic battlefield land, after a series of land transfers occurring between June 2024 and December 2027.  These properties were preserved by the American Battlefield Trust and Brandy Station Foundation, in partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia, and includes parts of the four major Civil War battles fought in Culpeper County:  Brandy Station, Cedar Mountain, Kelly’s Ford and Rappahannock Station.

Dedicated on June 8, 2024, visitors to the park can explore its history through interpretive walking and equestrian trails, along with guided tours available through local tour organizations and convenient mobile apps. Recreational activities may eventually include boating, camping and public programming.
