The Rising Hill Camp is an historic Confederate Army encampment, now located on the grounds of the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Prince William County, Virginia. The 2 acre site is believed to have been used by the 47th Virginia and 22nd North Carolina Regiments in connection with the operation of a battery at the top of a rise that was labeled "Rising Hill" on Union maps. The site consists rows of hut pits, at least 86 in number, arrayed down the western slope of a ridge. Although test pits have been dug by archaeologists, the site has not been investigated in detail.

The camp site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
