Located at 2001 Daniel K. Ludwig Drive in Woodbridge VA 22191, Leesylvania State Park opened its 542 acres of land in 1992, being surrounded by the Potomac River, Powells Creek and Neabsco Creek. Situated in the South Eastern area of Prince William County is just 25 miles away from Washington DC and Fredericksburg.

With the history of Leesylvania State Park on ‘Freestone Point’ referring to the sandstone used for building by early settlers, the land itself was a section of the Leesylvania Plantation. Robert E. Lee’s father Colonel Henry Lee III or ‘Light Horse Harry’ was raised on the land. Although the residence was burned down somewhat in the 18th Century, their family gravesite remains intact.
