Pettigrew Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located in Caroline County, Virginia. Most of its 934 acres (3.78 km2) are forested. Hardwood stands are dominated by oak and beach, while both Virginia and Loblolly Pine may be seen in growths of pine. Much of the land once belonged to Fort A. P. Hill; today, greenbriar, honeysuckle, and Virginia creeper may be seen reclaiming the property. On the southern edge of the area lies Mount Creek; its drainage, aided by beavers, is the primarily wetland for the area. Ware Creek, at the north end, is another major water source, and the tributaries of both may also be seen around the property.
