Only about 10 minutes from the Williamsburg Visitors Center. The helpful staff will direct you to Jamestown and Yorktown as well. The services here are great, and everything is bright and clean. The sites are large, but right next to each other. My only complaint is that it is very noisy, as it is sandwiched between the road and railroad...

Reviewed 22 February 2017

We have stayed here at least once a year for several years. This is an update of a previous review because the campground is putting in so many upgrades. We have a large motorcoach and four dogs, so we need a place with room to feel comfortable. Don't let the small size of the campground fool you, the sites have...

Try to find a another place at a better cost. On April, I had to pay over 80 US per night. More than the hotels around. Not worth that price at all. Far more than Myrtle Beach where we paid less than 50 US the days before.

You are accusing our business of engaging in an unethical practice. This is completely false and not plausible. Our online rates are tied into our in-house system, thus our guests are charged the same rates they see online. We believe you have written this review on the wrong business. If our business engaged in this kind of behavior, we would...

This was our first trip in our new RV and we could not have chosen a better destination. The grounds are immaculate and the staff members are incredibly friendly and go above and beyond to be helpful. The location is perfect for so many of the historical sites and we spent a lovely day at Virginia Beach. I would recommend...

With <100 sites, you need to make sure you reserve this worthwhile campsite early. Spring Break weather has been gorgeous (and bug-free)! Very friendly staff, new equipment at playground, big trees for shade, and top-notch shower house - personal thank you for that! We also appreciated the inviting individual sites & full hook-ups! You can tell the owners re-invest here,...

We really enjoyed our time at Anvil Campground - the staff was very helpful, knowledgeable of the area and treated us extremely well. For being right next to train tracks...it was one of the quietest campgrounds we have stayed. The improvements that are being made are very nice and top notch. We would recommend this campground for a stay in...
