This campground is small but very clean and well laid out. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. It is only minutes from the parks and downtown Williamsburg and easy to find your way around to local restaurants, shopping centers, etc. The only negative is that it is located about 30 feet away from a very active train track. We stayed from Wed-Sun and the trains ran about every 2 to 2 1/2 hours for up to 5 minutes at a time, even during the night. Very loud and fast. I would still most likely stay again due to the positive aspects of the campground and the cost was reasonable as well.

There is a train track that runs through Williamsburg itself and can be heard at Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, other Williamsburg attractions, shopping areas, residences, hotels, and campgrounds. For nearly every one of our guests the train is not an issue, if it ever is we do everything in our power to make a guest happy by moving them to another site farther away from the train track. There is no set schedule for when the train will pass.

What sold us the campground is people. When calling up to get information they were very helpful and nice. Called other local campgrounds, though not mean, they were really not very pleasant. One popular one even got mad at us because they thought we said 3 kids and not 2.

The train. I love the train! Yes it is very loud it came by once or twice after 10 p.m. (we stayed 3 nights) If your camp site is for a pop-up site like we were it will probably wake you for about 5 minutes and the joy of a train was very exciting. I would love to go back again.

This is an excellent campground, with great managers to serve your needs. The location for camping is excellent in relationship to the downtown Williamsburg. The lot we had handled our 45 foot motorhome and slides great. I will return to stay again when back in the area. Again the staff was very accommodating. Excellent place.

Staff are exceptional! Called me back to help me with alternate directions when my cell phone dropped the call in heavy traffic on I-64. Got me out of the traffic and to the campground effortlessly. Tight parking (we camped in a 40' FW) but doable. On the pricey side, but the five star service makes you forget you just paid almost $100 a night for a gravel pad (perfectly level) and no grass in a premium site. Pool was super clean, arcade was super clean. Everything- super clean. Train noise was not noticeable after the first couple of times it went by. You get used to it- but it's no kidding within 50 feet of some of the sites. Would stay here again because of the staff for sure!

We booked the Blacksmith Cottage for our 4 day stay in Williamsburg. My daughter is stationed at Ft Eustis so we took a family vacation to see her over the 4th of July. This campground is wonderful. The cottage was amazing. Plenty of room for 6 people. My only complaint would be that the cots they have for 2 people to sleep on need to be upgraded, maybe have another futon in the living room, as those cots are not very comfortable. Other than that we were able to cook as a family and actually spend time together. There were horseshoe pits and a basketball court right next to the cabin so we enjoyed those as a family. The pool was a wonderful retreat from the heat of Virginia. The staff are absolutely amazing. When we arrived there was a hurricane that was a possibility to make it that far north so of course we were worried about the fireworks shows for the following evening. They said they would keep watch and let us know the next morning. Which they did. And we got to go to Yorktown to see the fireworks, which i had had my heart set on for months. I will stay at this campground anytime i go see my daughter as long as she continues to be stationed in Virginia. There aren't enough stars to give Anvil Campground! They are wonderful!
