Great park. Nice spots and helpful people in the office. Great wifi. Very easy access to Colonial Williamsburg. Our only issue was getting back - the trip there was less than half an hour on the bus, but there did not seem to be a reverse route and we were stuck on the bus over an hour.

We love Anvil Campground! Cozy, obvious pride of family ownership, super convenient, new renovations, absolutely clean, perfect location to Williamsburg, shuttle rides to Historic Town, Water Country, and Busch Gardens, and possibly the most friendly staff we have ever seen. So, why not five stars, because to us, this is a five star facility. The facility is next to an... More

I grew to really like this park. The sites are a bit close, but we were there in the slow season and it didn't matter. Wifi and cable worked well. Head's-up that the train tracks run along the park boundry, which, personally, I enjoy. But, they're not subtle. This park is very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg - and I would... More

Have been here last 2 years in an RV. This past December we rented the Blacksmith Cottage the weekend before Christmas. What a perfect, cozy place to stay - kitchen, living room with fireplace, one bedroom and bath. Even had covered patio that since it was Christmas we decorated with lights and lighted snowmen! Campground is very close to Colonial... More

I started a new job and couldn't find an apartment in Williamsburg, so I borrowed my parents RV. They had camped at Anvil, so I decided to stay there until I found a place. I found it so peaceful, friendly and clean, I stayed for 6 months. I was minutes away from my job, shopping and entertainment. I only moved... More

Our week long stay at Anvil began 12/4/14. It was perfect for us and it was significantly less expensive than the KOA. It is sandwiched between a highway and a railroad track, but my husband and I love trains so it was a plus for us. We travel with dogs and there was a nice area to walk them in... More

Kudos to Anvil Campground. We rented both cabins for a Boy Scout trip to Williamsburg and had a wonderful time. The staff was a pleasure to work with and the facilities were great. The cabins were clean and comfortable, with plenty of room. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again,

this is a nice campground right near lots of food and shopping and close to Colonial Williamsburg. The facilities are clean and well kept the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only negative is the noise of the trains going by all the time. If you are a light sleeper like me, take along some earplugs and plan on... More

We have went to Anvil the past 3 Thanksgivings. They are wonderful to work with. You cannot get a more central location to everything in the Williamsburg area. The staff made sure we weren't going to go hungry on the holiday, letting us know what was going to be open and even offering to call and make reservations for us.... More

We enjoy this campground,while a bit tight, it's inside Williamsburg, convenient to everything. Upkeep is great on the property and we miss the train passing by which we really enjoyed. My wife and I stayed here for a week and a half and had a great time.
