Directions to Wilderness Battlefield


The Wilderness Battlefield does not have a visitor center. The exhibit shelter on Route 20 is a good place to start. Be aware that the shelter is unmanned except during the summer and on weekends in the spring and fall. There are no rest rooms on the battlefield. Click here for more information on visiting the Wilderness Battlefield and click here for information on the Battle of The Wilderness.

The Wilderness Exhibit Shelter is located on Route 20 about 2 miles south of the intersection of Route 3 with Route 20. The address is 35347 Constitution Highway, Locust Grove, Virginia 22508. This is a street address, nor is it a mailing address. If you are coming from I-95, take exit 130 West. Drive west approximately 12 miles to a traffic light at the intersection with Route 20. You will pass the Chancellorsville Visitor Center where you might want to stop for information and rest rooms. Turn left and proceed about 2 miles. The shelter is on the right.

Site of Chancellorsville

While laying out the Chancellorsville History Trail, the park staff in places had to literally hack their way through a jungle of underbrush that resembled the Wilderness that the soldiers struggled through during the Battle of Chancellorsville.
