Stayed in site 89, upper level. It wasn't level and a little short. Check about you rig length before checking in. Bring all your leveling blocks or stay on the lower tier (camp sites by the office). There are pull-throughs on the upper level, but I don't think there's a single level site up there (sites 40 through 91). Cable TV a little fuzzy, but tolerable. Wi-Fi a little slow, but we didn't get dropped and streamed movies without interruption. Bath houses were locked for the winter, so I don't know about them. Grounds were clean. I was glad to see a couple recycling bins. We don't camp for roasting marshmallows or for socializing. We camp because we like to travel and we HATE motels, so creature comforts and convenience are high on our priorities list, with a little tree-hugger thrown in. This place is OK. Nothing to write home about, but it's not a wreck, either. Our picnic table wasn't new, but it worked just like a picnic table should.

Wi-Fi is extremely weak. No joy. We tried our Verizon Air-card, with very limited success. The spots are level, as is the entire campground. Easy to maneuver, 95% paved roads (the loop at he end is gravel-ish). Lots of full time residents. We went for the motorcycle riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway. No disappointment there. The bathhouses, including showers, were clean, but old. Curtains for doors on the privy and showers. I prefer a door I can lock when I'm in the shower. One bathhouse was a little newer than the other, but they're both a little run down. I'd stay there again if all I wanted to do is ride my motorcycle, but everything else is so-so. Grass surrounds the concrete site pads, which I like. Disappointed in the Wi-Fi.

Paved roads and sites. Not very large, but the sites are a good size. Extremely clean restrooms and showers! Don't try to pull in with your utility trailer full of motorcycles towed by your white-van-with-an-air-mattress "camper". There wasn't an issue with the bikes, they only allow "recreational vehicles". Since we had a reservation and it was off season, they cut us some slack. I'm glad they didn't make life difficult. We stayed for 6 days, didn't cause any trouble, and the campground made a few bucks. If you're on a motorcycle, turn left when you exit the campground. Real nice. About the cleanest campground I've come across. Good size check-in parking area. There's a nice play/splash area for the younger kids in the swimming pool area and they have ice cream in the camp office.

Nice size, level sites. Wi-Fi worked for streaming movies, and we were in the site farthest from the office (in the corner against the road). The trains run all hours, but they slow down at night and we were not awaken by them. Kinda nice hearing it go by every now and then during the day. You can wave at the Engineer as they go by. Tent sites are literally spittin' distance from the trains. Clean grounds, easy layout, and helpful staff that are eager to please. I took a quick look at the bathrooms, and they looked clean. We didn't try their showers. The "upgraded landscaping" sites probably offer a little more space, but you won't get Roses and Orchids, if you know what I mean. Four nights Dec. 28th - Jan 1, 2014. PA rates, except for New Years Eve. Great location. We went for the Mountain bike trails in local parks (York River and Freedom Park) and were not disappointed. The Parks have displays and artifacts. We didn't venture into Jamestown or Colonial Williamsburg. If we were in the area again, Anvil Campground would be at the top of my short list.
