Staunton River Battlefield State Park
Randolph, VA

Park Size: 300 acres

HISTORY:
At this historic site, a ragtag group of Confederate old men and young boys beat the odds and held off an assault by 5,000 Union cavalry soldiers on a bridge of strategic importance to General Lee’s army, then under siege in Petersburg.

THINGS TO DO:
No overnight accommodations, however the park is 20 minutes from Staunton River State Park .

Hiking, bicycle trails and self-guided historical and nature trails available.

The beautiful Staunton River flows by the park and makes for a good float trip.

A new 3,800-square-foot visitor center was opened in 1995 as a result of a unique partnership between Virginia State Parks, Virginia Power, Old Dominion Electric Cooperative and the Historic Staunton River Foundation. Displays on the history of the area and exhibits on electric energy cover about half the center's floor space.

Programs available include Civil War re-enactments, living history and nature features.
