Reviewed 25 April 2014

The Camp was easy to find, very clean and the owners (staff) were very helpful and were able to answer any questions we may have. We were there the week before Easter and they organized an egg hunt. Our grand son had a blast. As we had an RV we did not have a car but we were still able to get around as there was a shuttle to get us in town and at the historical location such as Colonial Williamsburg. We will go back

I had read about the train online and Yes there is a train! It is close and loud however did not wake us. The campground was definitely on the small side but we didn't mind. The purpose of our trip was sightseeing and because there is so much to do in the area, we didnt spend much time at campground anyway. There were public buses for $2/day that got us everwhere and the pick-up was right at the campground! The friendliness of the staff was over the top- some of the most helpful people I have encountered in a long time at a campground! Would stay here again because the convenince, cleanliness and friendliness!!

The Anvil Campground has a great location and is close to all the Williamsburg amenities. There is a train track close by but after it goes by a couple of times, you forget it's even there. Check in was speedy and friendly. Our site was level and very wide. We would go there again.

We camped here for a week this March and were very much satisfied with the facilities and the staff. Everything was clean and well maintained. Off season was perfect for visiting Old Towne Williamsburg. We attended a Revolutionary War Conference while here and driving to that venue was easy with little traffic. It was a cinch to get to the Williamsburg Visitor's Center, also. Trains pass the campground on a regular basis, but we quickly got used to them. This campground has been here for a long time, and has an interesting blacksmithing history. The family who runs it take pride in the property...it shows. We plan more trips to Anvil Campground.

We certainly enjoyed our stay at Anvil RV Resort while we visited Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. Chris, our host, provided maps of the area that kept us out of the heavy traffic, and he also had tickets on sale at discount prices. Our lot was clean ... one of the cleanest we've ever had! Our granddaughter loved the three playgrounds. A great choice. Yes, there is a train nearby, but it was no problem at all.

Room Tip: Sorry, there was not a fitness center, but the laundry area was nice!

I chose to stay at Anvil because we do not tow a car and I thought we would utilize the bus system. The bus schedule changed in February and they do not offer trips to the Jamestown and Yorktown areas now. The weather was so bad when we were here that we decided to rent a car. That was an expense I didn't expect. We did everything I had planned for the week even though the weather wasn't cooperating. Anvil Campground is a nice, "little" facility. It is not dog friendly as there is not a specific area to take the dogs. If you are staying to just park your RV and visit the sites of Williamsburg, then this is the place to be. If you are planning to relax on your lot and enjoy the day, it is a little cramped. Luckily we only had someone on one side of us. We had the other side to stretch out. We travel in a 32' motorhome.

The bus schedule did change and we posted an update on our website immediately. We always hope for the best weather for our guests, but cannot control it. Our paved roads and thick gravel sites offer good resistance for the raining days keeping away the mud and keeping our guests as dry as possible.
Our facility is very dog friendly, for nearly all of our guests bring their dogs and they enjoy meeting each other and exploring our facility.
