We chose this campground in part due to the good reviews. It is very clean and shady. Nice little pool. Very nice showers (but only two on each side for the whole park). Nice staff. The whole place is gravel. The sites are extremely tight. We wanted a place close to the old town and we got that, but if... More

One if the nicest parks we have stayed at. Staff was very nice. We will be back. Close to everything and they have a shuttle bus that stops right at the front. Nice pool and the bathrooms are very clean. I couldn't say anything bad about this park, we had a great time.

My family and I came in late and Brandyn made sure we were all set before arriving. We met Chris, the owner the next day and he was very hospitable. Being a native of the area, he advised us on things to do and ways to save on doing them. The park was very well maintained and centrally located to... More

Great experience. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Great location. Small lots but very well maintained grounds and facilities. We were unaware of the train and while we were there it operated at all hours of the day and night, several times each day. It spooked one of our dogs, but that was our only issue. We would definitely stay... More

We spent last week at Anvil and absolutely loved it. We had a wonderful time and most of the staff was incredible. The sites were small but we had a great site that entered into the playground. Our kids loved it. The grounds were spotless and there was a ton of shade. Very well maintained. We had a minor issue... More

We apologize for the situation at the pool. It was a big misunderstanding. A glass bottle did hit the concrete on the other side of the pool fence. We went to investigate to see how it happened. At first, we did assume it was thrown from the pool, but after seeing it was just a family in the pool area,... More

We reserved online and only didn't know much about campground until we showed up. Smaller then expected, we tent camp and there was only 11 tent sites. The sites were smaller then I expected. Train is right next to ten sites and they do run all through night and during the day at all times, but with those few negative... More

Anvil Campground is located alongside an active railroad. HOWEVER, when we were there , the train never ran at night and only twice during the day. After the initial shock of sound, the trains didn't matter . Anvil Campground is an excellents facility. Very friendly staff, Morgan and Brandyn. Clean bathrooms and we'll organized sites.

This is a small family owned campground. Located very close to all Williamsburg attractions with shuttle to Colonial Williamsburg and a few other local places. This facility is small, super CLEAN with an amazingly friendly staff. The do have train tracks with loud trains that rush through, so I suggest you request the opposite side.
