Chester F. Phelps Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located in Fauquier and Culpeper Counties, Virginia. Over 1000 of its 4,539 acres (18.37 km2) are open, having in the past been used for agriculture; additional open areas may be found within the forests on the property. Most of the terrain is rolling, low, and shallow; the steepest land can be seen near the Rappahannock River, now forming a large part of the property's western border. A number of small streams cross the land, and a 3-acre (12,000 m2) pond is located near its center. The forests on the property contain both pine and hardwood.
