We stayed at Anvil Campground in mid-October for our Colonial Williamsburg trip. The campground is very well kept and was full most of our week long visit. It was easy to find, convenient location, close to restaurants and shopping. The staff was very helpful and took care of issues quickly. This will be our go-to campground when visiting the Williamsburg area again. We have referred friends there as well.

the folks here are very nice but trains very close to campground and traffic very near also spoil camping for some. The biggest problem for us was unheated bath house. at least the water was hot and location was close to attractions so we still recommend this place with the above caveats.

Great campground when visiting Williamsburg, VA. Easy to find, convenient to public transportation. We have stayed at the Anvil Campground 3 times. Twice we did not take a tow vehicle. You can catch a public bus right at the entrance to the campground and take it to the transportation center where you can either walk in to colonial Williamsburg or take another bus to any of the other attractions. The rates are very reasonable. The staff is courteous and always knowledgable and accomodating. I highly recommend this campground.

PS-- you don't hear the train once you get use to it.

We recently stayed in the blacksmith cottage at the Anvil Campground. The cottage was cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. The campground is conveniently located in between Colonial Williamsburg, the Outlets and various other attractions. The staff was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this campground many times. It is a good location that is close to all the places that we like to visit in the area. We also have brought other friends to stay here and they too liked the experience. The train isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Associates are very friendly and willing to give directions to nearby places.

This is a very nice campground. It is small and it is well maintained. The bathrooms are very clean. The location is the best of all campgrounds in Williamsburg. The office/store staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend you check it out. We have been here twice this year, April and October.

We like the staff at the Anvil Campground and the convenience to Colonial Williamsburg and will stay again. HOWEVER, in future we will always ask for a site a bit further away from the train tracks, although those are more expensive. Avoid sites 60-67. The trains there are just a few yards away, and sound like they are coming right through even a hard-sided camper. We had visions of a derailment which might wipe us out. Also, our site was next to a long-term camper whose dirt and clutter was off-putting. Our site (64) needed to be upgraded in terms of the worn picnic table and iffy electric box. This campground is expensive enough that we expected better in that regard.

For our second visit to Anvil we asked for a site in the 40s and were much happier there, although the trains are unavoidably loud everywhere. Utility box there was recently new. We were pleased that Passport America gets you a 50% discount at Anvil for certain months of the year.

We appreciate your business and the opportunity to have you as our guest! Your issue with your neighbor at the time has been addressed. As far as the electrical boxes, over 88% of our campsites have the best utility pedestals on the market; only our “Standard” sites have not yet been upgraded, but will be in the future.
