Coordinates: 37°27′50″N 77°54′45″W / 37.46389°N 77.91250°W / 37.46389; -77.91250 Amelia Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located in Amelia County, Virginia. Primarily upland habitat, it also preserves around 175 acres (0.71 km2) of bottomland hardwoods and beaver swampland along the Appomattox River. Much of the land was formerly used for farming; today it is managed to preserve wildlife habitat. The forest is mature, the terrain gently rolling, and the altitude between 200 and 300 feet (91 m) above sea level. Much of the area is bounded on the north by the river.
