Wilderness is an unincorporated community on the border of Orange and Spotsylvania counties in Virginia. The community is centered at the intersection of Virginia primary 20 and Virginia primary 3.[1]

The name likely comes from the nearby thick forest known as The Wilderness Forest, where a Civil War battle nearby known as the Battle of the Wilderness occurred. Locust Grove is the official mailing address for Wilderness.
