Located halfway between Petersburg and Appomattox Court House, the Sailor's Creek Battlefield State Park is a stop along the Lee's Retreat Driving Tour. A number of sites highlight the various actions at the Hillsman Farm (which serves as the park's visitor center), Marshall's Crossroads, the Lockett Farm, and Double Bridges give the visitor an opportunity to explore the unique landscape of South Side Virginia. Tours of the Hillsman House, which served as a hospital after the battle, can be arranged through the Park.
