Land's End Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located in King George County, Virginia. 462 acres (1.87 km2) in size, it is divided into two tracts. The site is a mixture of open farmland, woodland, and wetland, bordered on two sides by the Rappahannock River and on one by Jett's Creek. The area is primarily managed as a refuge for migrating waterfowl; Canada geese can often be seen in the winter feeding on fields of corn, milo, and winter wheat in the area, and resting in the nearby Nanzattico Bay. Among the other species often seen on the property are bald eagles, deer, wild turkey, and songbirds.

The area was the site of much interaction between the Nanzattico Indians and English settlers during the seventeenth century.
