Fort A.P. Hill sits just a short distance from Camden Farm. At nearly 76,000 acres, it is one of the largest military installations on the East Coast, and thousands of soldiers train here each year. The Army Compatible Use Buffer (ACUB) program creates a zone of open space around Fort A.P. Hill, thereby safeguarding the installation’s training mission. In addition, the buffer preserves valuable wildlife habitat, protects sensitive natural, historic and cultural resources and enhances the quality of life in nearby communities.
