The positives: This campground is easy to find, nicely located for visits to Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown as well as visiting Williamsburg itself; the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful; the site is clean and has all sorts of amenities. We did not try the pool since it's April and the weather was cold with rain for two days.... More

The owners and help at this campground are great. I stayed at their campground for one week (April) and found it to be excellent, clean and very friendly. The only drawback might be that you are very close to the railroad tracks but it did not bother my wife or I. I checked the air on my camper and found... More

We visited Colonial Williamsburg for spring break and stayed in the Journeyman's cabin at Anvil Campground. The staff was friendly, the campground was quiet and clean, and the cabin itself was very nice for the price. The best part was the full kitchen, a benefit you don't get with most of the area hotels. The location was convenient to everything... More

My spouse, cousin and I just spent a terrific week at Anvil Campground. The location has to be about the best possible in terms of a central location from which to make your visits and day-trips to surrounding attractions. The staff is warm, caring and very "in tune" to your needs. You do not have to look far to see... More

Made reservations for 4 nights during Spring break. Arrived, site was ready. Campground is clean and well-maintained. WES hookups are easy and modern. For $2.00 per adult (kids free), we took the Williamsburg bus to the store, Jamestown, old Williamsburg, and to the transit center. The $2.00 includes the new town Williamsburg trolley. The bus stop is right at the... More

If your looking to take in the Williamsburg attractions without having to drive this is the place. The WATA bus stop is right on the campground and it's super easy to get around to all the local attractions for only $2.00/day/adult. The outlets are close enough to walk to as well as Captain George's Seafood Buffet. The campground is clean... More

The Anvil Campground was WONDERFUL. There were many things that were great, but the number one thing was the proximity -- right in the middle between Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown. Also, the people from Anvil were super friendly from the person who took our reservation over the phone to the front desk (Chris was on top of everything)... More

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
