We spent two weeks here in May 2006. Overall, a very nice CG; rangers made regular patrols, nice and safe CG. The kids loved the playground at the entrance to the B-Loop. Only drawbacks were lack of a sewer hook-up and lack of internet access. Cable hook-up would also have been nice. However, rates were considerably cheaper than CG's that provide more and cost more. We will stay there again if I have to travel back to Fort Eustis.

Fairly nice park. It is about the halfway point in our travel up the East Coast. We stayed one night on April 29 on our way north and one night on May 14 on our way back down south. The pool was not open on either stop and the WIFI that is advertised was not working either time (according to the office staff, it was for a different reason each time). Overall, easy in and out by Interstate 95. We will likely stay there again on our way northward next time and on the return trip southward.

Anvil is a very small campground. There is no privacy with the extremely small sites. They list having 65 sites but, several have permanent trailers and others can only accommodate one trailer but are listed for two. There is a railroad track that runs directly behind the campground and trains run all through the night. They are loud and shake the trailers. They have a store, game room, TV room and office but they are never open for use. The 2 soda machines have been out the entire week we have been here. Nothing here has been kept up properly. This was probably a half way decent campground many years ago but now is run down and filthy. Their website is very misleading. We will never stay here again. For example: The hot water in the men's sink in the bath house has been out of operation since last summer.
