Prince William Forest Park protects the largest piedmont forest in the national park system and the largest green space in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The park gives area residents and visitors a unique opportunity to camp in, hike through and explore 15,000 wooded acres filled with wildlife and more than 300 years of human history. The town of Dumfries and the land that is now Prince William Forest Park were important areas during the American Civil War (1861-1865). Located 30 miles from the Union capital of Washington, D.C., it was a strategic point that the Confederate army hoped to control.
