Anvil Campground Reviews!





What makes us better is that we care more and work harder than any other campground.  These reviews and 63 years prove it!   Our staff and facilities are the best.
We promise to always take care of you and your family while you are enjoying beautiful Williamsburg, Virginia!  We look forward to hosting you!

-5 out of 5 stars
"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 motor coach 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 plenty of room and the facility is perfect for walking the dogs. It is so good to see this place thriving. The young brothers that run it are part of the family that has owned this for over 60 years. One of the brothers lives on site with his wonderful wife and baby. You get a real pride of ownership in the place. Because they are doing so well, they are putting in some neat new features. First, and this is a big one for us, they are putting in a dog run. It will be nice to let the dogs wander off leash in the dog park. They have upgraded the playgrounds to include a child sized zip line. My 12-year-old niece played on the zip line for over an hour to give you an idea of how fun it is. The bathrooms where upgraded a year ago, and they remain immaculate. For non-campers, they are adding two Amish Cabins. These are across the street from the bathhouse, they will have a queen bed and two bunks beds with a frig and microwave and air-conditioning. No water, so you get the camping experience, but enough amenities that you are not roughing it too much. If you like roughing it, they are upgrading the tent camping areas, so they are really nice. They are also converting the old arcade room into a day room/TV room/Rally room. This, with the addition of a couple of new group picnic/campfire areas makes this the perfect place for a group/club camp out. Oh, there are two breweries within a mile of the park, so this is a plus. Yes, the train does come by this place, but we noticed the last train runs when we are going to bed and the first runs when we wake up. You do notice the train at first, but then, you quickly ignore it. We will continue to come back because of the staff; they are wonderful people that remember us each time we come back. Sure, there are other nice RV parks in the Williamsburg area, but this place is as nice as any of them, and is the closest to the historic area. Please tell Brandon that the greyhounds said hi when you come. If you are looking for a dog friendly place that is nice and convenient to the historic area, this is where you should stay.

"I have visited this wonderful campground many times in my travels. My wife and I are fulltimers, cross crossing the country. Each time we come back to Williamsburg, VA, we book our stay at this charming place. What is so impressive is the constant improvements that we see each time we return. The campground was surely a jewel when we first came to the park and now the owners have dedicated hard work and time to make this jewel shine even brighter. We love the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the park, easy access for a 40 foot motorhome, easy transportation to all the major events in town, and the feeling that you are being cared for by the owners. The park is quiet, restrooms immaculate, great roads, graveled sites, great power, wifi, and so much more. I cannot speak enough about this wonderful park in such a historic area.
PS - do not worry about the trains. They only come though every so often, pass quickly by, and the noise is minimum.”

"I absolutely LOVE this place. The staff is the best. Not that they had to but, they proved it again this fall! We are full time campers and stay here twice a year on our way to and from Florida. This is by far the best campground we stay in during the year....and the owners and staff cannot be beat!!! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a campground in the Williamsburg area...we are here to visit grandkids in Hampton and there are closer campgrounds but this is the best!”

-5 out of 5 stars
"My wife, daughter, grandson and I recently spent two months at Anvil Campground, 15 July to 15 September. We'd sold one house and were waiting for another to be completed. The stay was totally everything we could have asked for. At one point or another, we dealt with all the principal operating staff. They couldn't have been any more polite, courteous, responsive, accommodating to our needs or concerned about the quality of our stay. The campground is kept impeccably clean and the bathrooms are equal to or better than any public bathroom I've ever been in. We're 36 years residents of Williamsburg and know the area well. For visitor's to the area, there isn't a campground more centrally located for access to the area's many attractions from Yorktown to Jamestown and obviously Williamsburg. I recommend Anvil to anyone with no reservations or qualifying remarks.

You are located (perfectly) so going to Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown were a breeze and we went to Norfolk for a day trip and it was easy to get there from here. You have a great place.

-5 out of 5 stars
"This was the excellent place for our group of LTVers to have a rally and visit the triangle of Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown, and oh, yes to do some shopping. The staff is wonderful, the camp ground clean and neat, the bathrooms are something I have never seen in a camp ground. They are well kept and beautiful. A lot of thought has gone into making Anvil campground a welcoming place to say while visiting Williamsburg, VA. Keep up the good work!!!

-5 out of 5 stars
"Our stay at Anvil Campground was fantastic!! Chris and the entire staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We extended our stay, even after Hurricane Hermine became a real threat in the area. The campground could not have been more centrally located in the Historic Triangle. It was perfect. A railroad track does run alongside the property, however we were not disturbed by it. In fact, our stay in Williamsburg was the highlight of our entire trip! We were impressed by the fact that this campground has been in this family for over 60 years and that Chris grew up there with his family and continues the tradition by raising his son there. That says a lot about his commitment to the family business. It was everything a great campground needs to be when you travel. It was clean, the staff was friendly, and it was centrally located. We would definitely recommend Anvil Campground.

"Chris,
We have been telling everyone who will listen about our trip to Williamsburg. We had a great time and our stay at Anvil was one of the best parts. We will certainly return if we are ever in the area again and we will recommend your campground to others. Thanks for all the great advice and history lessons. I am going to purchase a train phone like yours for Greg for Christmas. He liked yours so much. I placed a review on Trip Advisor but I wanted to thank you personally. Tell Brandyn and Morgan hello for us. Your customer service skills cannot be matched!! Keep up the good work and continue the family tradition. Impressive!!

-5 out of 5 stars
"Let me start by saying that I travel a LOT for work and have stayed at numerous high end luxury hotels, but NEVER have I experienced the overall genuinely friendly customer service as I did at Anvil campground. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiling faces. They allowed us to check in a little early after our long drive and went above and beyond to let us know of all the attractions in the area. We were checked in by the operations manager and he just seemed so pleased to have us there. We stayed in the Blacksmith cottage which was above and beyond clean. I mean, this place was spotless and perfect for myself, husband and two children. We had a small issue with the air conditioner in the unit and they were extremely apologetic and ensured the issue was fixed quickly and we were as comfortable as possible. I can not say enough about how amazing the entire staff was during our stay. Highly recommend!!!!

-5 out of 5 stars
"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 excellent facility. Very friendly staff, Morgan and Brandyn. Clean bathrooms and well organized sites.
The campground is very close to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and William and Mary College. 
Bus service to Williamsburg stops at the campground and is very inexpensive.

"We enjoyed our stay at Anvil very much and would return if going to the area again with a camper. The location is perfect for getting around Williamsburg as everything is very close with easy access routes to get around. There is also public transportation that picks up right there and goes just about everywhere you may want to go should you decide to leave the vehicle at the campground. Busch Gardens, Water Country, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown are all close by. We also drove to Norfolk one day and that was less than an hour away. The campground is very clean with super friendly staff.. this place is what hospitality is all about. During the day you may notice the trains going by or activity on the road outside the campground but at night when we settled down to call it a night not a thing was heard outside. Quiet time within the grounds means just that. Everyone may still be out around a fire visiting but you could hear a pin drop all around you. The bathrooms are very modern, clean and the best I have ever seen in a camping area. Sites are level and gravel so no mud if it rains which I really like in a site. The hookups are the most modern I have ever seen in a campground. Very nice! If you are wanting a place to stay close to the area for day trips out this is the place to go. Very pet friendly with the same rules as other campgrounds.. clean up after them and don't let them run loose to bother others.. as it should be. During our stay there was not too many families with kids but they have the pool which is very nice and a couple playgrounds for them if you have kids with you. The speed limit in the camp is very slow so they would be safe on their bikes around there as well. We had a very good time and enjoyed our stay very much.

"Unscheduled stop in the area, looking for a campground, on a busy July 4th weekend... The owner of Anvil called us back to let us know there was a site available and made it possible for us to rest on our journey North. Not only that, but we discovered an impeccably run campground, beautiful amenities, spotless bathrooms and a non-pareil customer service. Yes the camp is located between a road and near train tracks, but that did not take away from the excellence of the rest. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.

"Anvil Campground is a great place to stay if you want to do all that Williamsburg has to offer. Just up the road are the fashion outlets and the regular bus service that stops right out front will take you everywhere else you need to go. The camp itself is meticulously maintained and the bath house has been newly renovated. The pool is nice and the camp store has anything you might have forgotten to bring. The spaces are level and graveled (no mud) and have updated (lighted!) power stations. Wi-Fi and cable are nice features. Best of all are the owners and staff -- everyone is so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend Anvil Campground as the perfect place to stay as both a stopover and a destination.

"The place is small but super nice. Staff is outstanding and sincere about it. Folk complain about the train track close by but in reality it makes this place so much better. The trains were no bother to us at all and they were very sporadic. We are very active and use our RV a whole lot. We came across Anvil due to close vicinity to where we wanted to visit. It was a pot luck kind a deal and we had loads of luck! We certainly will be back for a repeat. Our RV is 40' long and we had no problem navigating through the place. Place is clean and well maintained. Full hook up with no issues at all. Big thumbs up!

"Hello!  My husband, myself, and our 5 dogs stayed with you during the week of March 26-April 2. We had a wonderful time! This was our first time staying at the Anvil campground. We have stayed at other campgrounds in Williamsburg. I do not feel that they even compare to Anvil! The camp staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Our campsite was very nice and clean. We did purchase discounted tickets to Colonial Williamsburg. We normally use our camper shower, however due to an issue with our camper toilet we had to use your shower house. I felt like I was in a hotel! The shower was very nice and clean. There was even warm air blowing on me! You can tell this campground is well taken care of! The location was also wonderful! We were so close to everything. We even went and enjoyed an afternoon at the park you all suggested! 
Overall we loved your campground and we look forward to planning a trip back possibly this summer!
Thanks for all you do!

"When we first pulled in we thought we may have made a mistake because the campground at first glance seemed small and crowded and because we are so used to larger campgrounds with fishing lakes, beaches, etc. We were so WRONG! We'd forgotten the old saying that the best things come in small packages. The front desk and maintenance staff are so friendly and helpful and the little store has everything you need and is reasonably priced. And if they don't have it, the staff can tell you exactly where to get it. The pool wasn't open but I can only assume when it is open it will be as clean and sparkling as the restrooms, laundry room, game room and store. Everything was accessible pretty much 24/7, whether the office was open or not and the owners live right on site in the event there should be an emergency. They have excellent wifi and all the amenities the large campgrounds have, but nicer, cleaner, cozier. No hassles if you need change for the game room or laundry room, whereas the larger campgrounds have often sent us to the bank for change, or telling us we should have thought to bring quarters. The staff went out of their way to give us a site right next to the bathhouse to help accommodate our two special needs children. There is no fishing on site but nice walking/biking trail to Waller Mill Park right next door, with a dog park, fishing lake, boat launch and multiple hiking and nature trails, picnic tables and play areas. The park closes at dusk so no night fishing was available, but if you want to do Busch Gardens, or historic sightseeing such as Colonial Williamsburg, you can catch a shuttle right at the entrance to the campground, and you can buy tickets in the from office. The restrooms are the nicest and cleanest and most private of any I've ever seen. Its a great place for a stopover on your way through or an extended stay, and I completely understand their consistently high ratings.

"Please thank your staff for their attention to detail and their honest kindness!
We have a class A motorhome and stopped in to the Anvil Campground without an advanced reservation. All sites were filled, but the wonderfully pleasant young woman at the check-in counter accommodated us in an overflow spot along the edge of a surfaced road. By the time I had the rig turned around, another wonderful personality was waiting for us at the site. He introduced himself and guided me in like I was landing a 747, placed safety cones, hooked us up to 50A service, cable TV, and water. Let me restate that he hooked our rig up to the faculties and I barely had had a chance to get my hands dirty. We were completely set up in less than 5 minutes. Although we were not in a fully provisioned site, we had WIFI and were offered the use of a nearby tent site if we wanted to make a campfire or use a picnic table and a free dumping station was also available. Over time we may forget how nice the campground is maintained, but we will never forget how the the staff made us feel. KUDOS and 10 stars!

"When we first pulled in we were a almost disappointed at how small and crowded Anvil looked, but it grew bigger in our eyes very quickly. Small but cozy and with absolutely everything a camper could need. Family and Pet Friendly, Upgraded private showers and restrooms, small but sparkling pool, camp store well stocked for last minute forgotten items, and felt treated like royalty by the staff. We have stayed here twice now and attended their 62nd Birthday Party and Blue Grass Fest. We had a blast and can't wait to go back. Smack in the middle of everywhere, Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and more. And the shuttle bus stops at the entrance and its right next to a beautiful park with boating, fishing, hiking, a dog park and great nature trails. The only con is the trains that go roaring by at all hours, but we drowned it out with a great campfire and a lot of laughter and fun.

"Campground was very clean and well maintained. It is also ideally located for all attractions and the public bus stop is at the entrance of the park. The staff were the "BEST". We have camped a lot and never had such wonderful service from the campground office staff. In fact, I had forgotten an herb that I needed to make a dinner dish and they didn't have it in the little store, so the owner went to his own home and loaded me the herb. I would definitely recommend this campground and will return!!!

 This is a hidden Jewel and is the third time we have stayed there and will not be our last. It is just a few minutes from the Revolutionary City makes going there so convenient. Very clean with brand new ceramic bathrooms and nice pool for cooling off.
 Well stocked store, but the Staff is by far the best we have seen. An occasional train by is part of the ambiance, not a bother.

"We have camped at Anvil three times and plan on returning there for all of our Williamsburg camping visits. For a small park the sites are well-maintained, deceptively spacious, and level. The remodeled bathrooms are the best I have ever seen at any rv park. The staff is super friendly and helpful. One of the features we enjoy the most is that the park has a stop on the city bus line.. For one or two dollars (depending on age) you can ride the bus all day and it makes a stop right in front of the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center. Anvil easily rates five stars.

February 24, 2017 - www.tripadvisor.com - "First Wedding Reception to Be Hosted at Anvil"
-5 out of 5 stars
"November 12, 2016 I married the love of my life. However, we were on an extremely small budget for a wedding. Our budget wouldn’t even pay for most wedding photographers. Good thing I have an amazing friend that gifted us one of her wedding packages! Here is a little shout out to her and her wedding photography company KSant Photography. My husband and I are not the most traditional people in the world and wanted to make a statement with our wedding. You see, the day we got married was our 10 year anniversary together as a couple. Many individuals couldn’t believe we were finally getting married! Actually, we couldn’t believe we were finally getting married. For the six years prior to our wedding, we would go to Williamsburg for our anniversary. When deciding where we wanted to have the ceremony and reception Williamsburg is where our hearts lied. We have such good memories there and that is where our love grew stronger. Any who, we were getting discouraged because we could find absolutely nothing that was in our price range. I decided to call a friend to vent about it. Best decision I made… that angry rant gave me a wonderful idea. To have our wedding ceremony at Ripley’s… We did some negotiating with Ripley’s and were able to get the ceremony venue locked in. Now can the really hard part, where to have the reception and how were we going to provide good food to our guest for low, low pricing. Went down to Williamsburg to look into some campgrounds and after many failed attempts, we found the perfect place, Anvil Campground. I found out where they were located, called Brandon, a park manager and asked if we could speak with her about possibly hosting our wedding reception there. She was so extremely excited to speak with us, which started to turn our spirits around. As soon as we pulled into the park, we absolutely feel in love. It was quaint, quite, and cozy, which was exactly what we were looking for. We meet with Brandon and explained to her our ideas and thoughts. She showed us the facility and the cabins we would be using, along with the reception space. The three of us went back and forth with ideas and logistics. Brandon informed us she would have to reach out to the owner for final approval of everything we had discussed, including pricing. They referred us to a BBQ catering company they use for their own events and we discovered that Ripley’s was actually a sponsor of Anvil’s. The stars were staring to align. We booked Anvil for our reception 3 Days later and our “package” included everything you could imagine for a price that was unbeatable. Anvil is one of the best campgrounds I have ever been too, and I have done a lot of camping in my life. But if you need more evidence, my husband hates camping and I quote, “I would come here again! I think we should start staying here on our anniversary trips every year!” The facility was beautiful. Well kept, clean, and a staff like I have never experienced. Their customer service is absolutely impeccable! I haven’t had the pleasure of interacting with such friendly and helpful staff, EVER! I highly recommend this place for a group meetings or just a getaway weekend. I can’t wait until we are able to go back. Thank you again Anvil, you were and still are amazing!"

"We stayed in a cabin over the Xmas weekend. There were not that many guests that weekend, so interaction with others was limited. We found the grounds clean and well maintained and the cabin, while fairly minimalist, was clean and welcoming. The best part is that we were able to bring our dog.
