Park Rules and Regulations

The Superindendent's Compendium (updated October 2019) contains a full list of rules and regulations at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the park at 540-693-3200.

Firearms in National Parks:

The law governing possession of firearms inside a national park changed on February 22, 2010. Visitors may possess firearms within a national park unit provided they comply with federal, state, and local laws. Please remember that federal law prohibits firearms in certain park facilities and buildings. These places are marked with signs at public entrances.

The role of the responsible gun owner is to know and obey the federal, state, and local laws appropriate to the park they are visiting. Visit the Virginia State Police website to learn more.
