Pets must be securely leashed at all times when walking the grounds, with no exceptions. In addition to the safety of other pets and human visitors, many locations within the park are near busy public roads. Please keep in mind that your pet will likely come into contact with other visitors (both human and canine) when out in the park, so it is important to have an awareness of your pet's social behavior.
Pets are not permitted in the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center, the Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center, or in any of the park's historic structures.
When visiting the park with your pet, please plan ahead. Bring plenty of water, particularly in the warm summer season, and be aware of your pet's physical limitations. Plan to have someone stay with your animal at all times. A pet should never be left in a car alone.
If you have any questions or concerns about pets in the park, please call 540-693-3200. Have a safe visit!
