This is the oldest campground in Virginia and top 5 oldest in the nation.
Clean and well kept campground but directly located next to busy train tracks. Loud train noise and ground shaking throughout the night.
This campground is very close to all the fun activities Williamsburg has to offer. The campground was very clean and the staff was super friendly. The train was very close to our campsite which was only a problem at night. The train ran all throughout the night making it very difficult to sleep. We purchased some ear plugs which were extremely effective in helping us sleep during the constent train activity.
The campsites here are lovely but the site is right on the train tracks and the train runs by frequently. The owners are accommodating but only to the extent that they think serves them. If you need something they back away quickly. Beautiful campground if you don’t need anything and if you don’t mind a lot of noise.

Anvil is nice, clean and extremely convenient to all that Williamsburg has to offer. The pool was not open while we were onsite but the playground/beach area was a hit with our kids. The staff was very helpful and friendly with all our requests. The only downfall we found at Anvil was the fact that there is no mention of the very active train track that runs directly behind (Within thirty feet) the office/store. Between the Amtrak whizzing past at speed or the CSX coal train, heading to the coast i imagine, we were awoken a few times a night during the weekend we stayed. We did get “Used” to it i guess, but a little heads up would have made it easier to swallow.
anvil campground is great! it’s full of old beautiful trees that keep the sites shady and cool. my daughter loved the pool and “beach” area. we hopped on a bus, at the campground and went to Busch Gardens, it was so convient. the staff is super friendly and the campground is very well maintained. the general store is well stocked and they have ice cream. we will definitely be going back!
