This is an excellent small park. It is clean and well maintained. All employees were very friendly and helpful. Excellent Wifi and was satellite friendly.

Only negative is it is very close to the RR tracks and some road noise. We would stay again but be aware of the noise issues.

Overall loved the park for a short stay. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff at check-in. A little tight maneuvering the road but with care no problems. Sites level gravel, about half in trees with the others more open. Those in the trees may have trouble getting a satellite signal. Wifi worked well most of the time - a little slow during peak hours. Cable was good with many channels. The only reason I marked the campground loser was due to close proximity of the train tracks - about a hundred yards away. The coach actually shook a little when a freight train passed and we were the farthest from the tracks. Luckily the did not run much at night. We would stay here again. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Public transit stops at the campground if you choose not to drive into Williamsburg. Parking in Historic Williamsburg on the weekend can be very difficult, even this time of year. The nearby outlet mall will keep the shopper busy for hours.

Small privately owned park with an amazing staff. Our corner lot was large and has a large dog walking area near the entrance to the park. It is right on the train tracks but they didn't bother us at all. We stayed 6 weeks and it was always very clean and well kept. We had a great stay and will come back if in the area. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The area a much too small an area. Everything was jammed on top of one another. A busy highway was on one side of the very small grounds and a train was on the opposite side. You could not get away from the noise. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The location was great, minutes from the visitor's center and the middle of Gettysburg, where there were wonderful restaurants. Prices in most of the restaurants were very reasonable, by Alaska standards. Food shopping was not close by.

This was our third stay at this park and it will not be our last. We just love this park for the friendly staff and closeness to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Because the campground is on a bus line, we do not need to bring a car, which saves us money. The bus is very safe and reliable.

It is next to the railroad tracks but we have camped across the U.S. and this is the case with many campgrounds. After the second train, we barely notice them. The road in front is quite busy during the day but quiets down at night and we have not noticed much truck traffic, mostly cars.

Our sites have always been fairly level with little adjustment on our part. We will definitely stay here again and again. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Small and quaint. Every employee are the sweetest people I have ever encountered. They willing and able to help out with anything!!! Cute little store, pool, playgrounds & arcade. Laundry facilities tad expensive, but plenty in town. The sites are small, but fit everything you could have to camp in. Only one major issue, train tracks right behind it n they run about every 3-4 hours. But They haven't been too big or loud. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very small park. Lots of tents. The sites are very small also. This park is next to a main road with lots of traffic and a train also. The sites are large gravel rocks and are not quite level enough for a class A on some sites. They have a dirt(used to be grass) patio that is very small. It is not that much closer to Williamsburg than the Heritage Campground so that's where I would stay next time. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Staff was very helpful and friendly. The park is fairly small with very little grass areas for dogs. Nice pool with a few playgrounds for the kids. Very close to Williamsburg. Right next to the train tracks but not bad if you don't mind trains. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice small campground. Check-in was easy and staff was knowledgeable. Odd setup for units in the middle section as you have to back up to each other. Restrooms are clean but small and could use a little updating. Good location for exploring the area. No problems with utilities and Wi-Fi and cable TV were good. Trains were not an issue for us. We would possibly try another campground in the area but would not have a problem camping here again. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate based on pay for 6 get 7th free. Showers were dated and enclosures were not private. Could use an upgrade. Park established in 1954 and is still owned by same family. They were all friendly and very helpful. Park is well maintained. Water pressure was terrible. Took several minutes to fill coffee pot using our Pur filter. Railroad track on one side busy road on other but we didn't find it to be a problem. Trains seem to be only during day and traffic slowed down in the evening. If in the area the water pressure would be the only thing to keep us from going back. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Great location, great staff. Tight for the biggest RVs. Cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Yes, the road noise is annoying. The growth in the area over the years has made this CG a little noisier. The trains never bother us. Camp here every time we come to Williamsburg. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Be sure to see Revolutionary City in Colonial Williamsburg. If you don't buy the attraction ticket you can still walk the streets.

Eat at Peking and La Tolteca.

Small park, RIGHT next to a busy noisy street. That was its major disadvantage. Close to Williamsburg. Other than the street noise, it was fine. And the speed bumps. Aargh. Don't need speed bumps in a small park like this. Take 'em out. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.

Williamsburg. Dog day care center very nearby, but your dog must have had a fecal test within the last six months. We ended up using a Dogvacay member just a few miles away.

I grew to really like this park. The sites are a bit close, but we were there in the slow season and it didn't matter. Wifi and cable worked well. Head's-up that the train tracks run along the park boundry, which, personally, I enjoy. But, they're not subtle. This park is very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg - and I would stay here again. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The rate stated is for Passport America. This is a great park convenient to Historic Colonial Williamsburg. The shuttle service is the area transit bus, which we used for the four days we were here. The sites are not large but were sufficient. The WIFI worked great. Manager was super at check-in and always friendly. We needed to leave a night early due to a family emergency and he issued a refund for that night with no problem. Like others have said, there are train tracks very close to camping but they never woke us at night so it was not an issue. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Anvil Campground in a Motorhome.
