It was interesting but there is really nothing there we enjoyed being able to see the ghost ships more than walking around dirt mounds

This is a Civil War fort and has infomation and markers in the area describing it. There is a trail through the woods and over a little bridge to get to the fort. Replica cannons surround the area and the fort gives great views of the James River and the ghost fleet!

Fort Huger is not really a fort but a location where a fort once existed. If you like reading sign posts, this place is for you.

We visited Fort Huger today. We were the only people there. I wish we would have packed a lunch! Interesting Civil War fort and a US Navy boneyard is visible. The only problem we had was finding it because of road closures. Check their official website for directions around the closures.

Well worth the mile or so walk from the parking lot, good view of river in fall and winter. Reproduction fiberglass cannon command the waterway. Trail to river shore results in a view of the James River ghost fleet of inactive ships.
