It is a pretty little marina, peaceful and picturesque.....the Pagan River is awesome and if you have a dinghy you can explore for miles in deep water as it winds and around every curve is a great blue heron, egrets, osprey.....
The restaurant here is wonderful and everything clean and tidy

Stayed one night at Smithfield Station. As always, a very nice place to stay. Friendly staff and nice small marine.

Very nice Marina close to town with marsh views. Opposite the Windsor Castle Park which is excellent for a variety of trails suitable for a run or walk through the Marsh Land and woods. Also has kayaks for rent. Town is charming. Food is nothing special at both the “highly rated” Marina restaurant and the brewery in town. But this is well worth a visit. Only irritant was a party with a band going on at the pool on the Saturday night, up to 11am, which was quite loud and next to where we tied up. We would rather have had a string quartet!
Watch out for the James River Bridge which you pass to get there. It has clearance of only 60ft and if your a sailboat with a higher mast you have to call ahead a couple of hours (757-247-2133), to schedule a raise. The bridge tender is very friendly and is happy to accommodate.
We will be back!

Both times we've stayed at Smithfield Station we were met by one of the owners who expertly tied us to floating face dock, then told us what we needed to know about the marina and Smithfield. Lovely area with friendly residents. Marina was clean, protected and quiet.
Thanks for the terrific review you guys and we are glad you enjoyed our quaint town! Hope to see you back soon and let us know if you need help with anything else.

Have visited here a few times. Great destination on the Pagan River, off of the James. Great restaurant, small pool, and clean restrooms/shower. Very nice floating docks, and dock master Brian Pack always ready to lend a hand. Easy walk to historic downtown Smithfield and Windsor Castle Park. Mind the depths along the Pagan River, and make sure you have enough water.

Beautiful marina. Great location. Outstanding service. Only improvement needed is the WiFi signal almost never worked on the docks.

Dock master was very nice. Channel was deep and well marked. Facilities were excellent. Highly recommend.
Thanks docmartin! Always great to have smiling faces in town! Hope to see you guys again soon.

This is a beautiful marina. I lived across the water and got to see the blazing flame licked look to the waters at sunset, the reflections of boat lights (especially when fully rigged for parade) on glassy clear water at dusk, the sounds of diesels chugging along in and out echo across the water like fog caressing the ground, and the wild life was amazing. Ducks, geese, fish, crab, crayfish, deer and more. Stunning vista but I moved away to Texas.
The only downer was the light house at Smithfield Station. The room was amazing and beautiful, but the hot tub controls were shot and we had to sit in hot water till it cooled off, and no bubbles. Hope they fixed it by now. The food on the other hand is to die for. So delicious, alluring, soothing, tasty! Mmm.
