 Loved our stay.....: Went to anvil on August 24th and 25th 2009. Campground was very clean. Management was super nice and always helpful. Bathrooms very clean, good hot showers. Pool was always clean and also fenced. Playground for kids very nice with fence also. Store was well stocked with almost everything a camper needs. Local police rode through campground on regular basis. Good lighting at night. Now for the train. The train track is about 20 feet behind the tent camping. Trains come through day and night. There were 6 of us camping and 3 were little kids. nobody ever woke up with fan going. and yes tent camping had electric and water hookups. Some people said no fence between you and train on reviews. There is no fence but there is a line of trees, thick weeds, briars and poison ivy.(Had no desire to walk that way and neither did kids) Had small children with us and never had problem at all. Most of the trains went buy so fast you barely noticed but a few were longer (like 30 seconds). Nothing to worry about if your wanting camping with good rates clean facilities and good management. Local attractions and food very close. We will use again when we go back for sure.

This was my first time coming to Williamsburg, Virginia. There were many things that made this campground nice. For starters I would like to tell you about the experience I had with one of the office clerks. Her name is Leann. She was working by herself in the office and very busy at the moment. That did not stop her from providing everyone with excellent customer service. She had 3 people there to check in and she took quality time with everyone to make sure that they were happy and explained everything to them. She was really helpful and very friendly. Second many people complain about the train. My husband and I didn't have any problems with it. This campground is very clean and the maintenance men are always working if anyone needs help. The last thing that I would like to mention is that this campground offers discounted tickets to Bush Gardens, Water Country, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and one other place. It was a great experience and if I ever come back to Williamsburg again I would definitely stay there. I would highly recommend this place. Keep up the good work! We camped here in a Motorhome.

"Dear Manager of Anvil Campground,

We would like to thank you, and your staff for being so nice. Our stay was very pleasant.

Mr. Tom Pickral, one of the grounds men was so pleasant, and he seem to love animals, which meant a lot to us because we have a little dog. We have been to Florida, North Carolina, and Tennessee, and our little dog has never really relaxed in a camp ground, but she was at home in your camp ground when we first got there. I guess dogs can sense things we can't.

Anyway, wanted to thank Mr. Pickral for keeping everything so nice."

Thank You,

-Joe & Judy Lewis - Bracey, VA

This was our first time staying at Anvil Campground. We had a wonderful experience and would love to come back again. The young lady working the front desk in the office was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Yes, it is older, but to me the condition is more important and the condition of this park is being constantly updated. Maintenance was always checking things, bringing things up to snuff (during my stay peeling paint was redone in a bathroom stall). The sites were pretty level, hookups worked fine and sites are wide enough for slides and awnings. And yes, CSX trains come through regularly right next door, but so what. It's quiet otherwise. And best of all, they have a bus to all the area sightseeing. For a buck and a half all day pass, you can go all over the area. I camped here three days in a Motorhome We camped here in a Motorhome.
