“Riverview”
Review of Fort Huger

Fort Huger
Ranked #8 of 16 things to do in Smithfield
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 March 2016

There isn't really a fort in the traditional sense, but more of a shore battery location. Although the reproduction canons and riverviews make it a good photo op and worth a stop. The site also overlooks the "Ghost fleet" which has been greatly reduced in recent years but still interesting.

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.
