We stayed at Anvil Campground while we were visiting family in the area.  As a Passport America park, the rates were more than reasonable for the campground’s long and impressive list of amenities:
  • Williamsburg’s only campground with shuttle services
  • Free wi-fi
  • First-class utility pedestals in select sites
  • Laser leveling in select sites
  • Free cable in select sites
  • 50-amp electrical
  • Paved throughways in the campground
  • Pet friendly
  • Recycling bins next to trash cans
  • Rental cottages
  • Discounted attraction tickets
  • Free public access computer
  • General store with complimentary coffee
  • Swimming pool that’s handicap-accessible
  • Three playgrounds
  • Shower and laundry facilities
  • Arcade, basketball and horseshoes
  • Fire ring and picnic table at every site

Anvil has been in operation since 1954, owned by the same family for three generations.  Maybe that’s why the staff is so friendly.  They seem to truly love the business that’s been handed down over decades.  The park is small but picturesque, with a walking/biking/running trail very close by.  Easy access to a variety of restaurants and shopping means minimal driving, or you can take the free shuttle into town.

The park’s name comes from the family’s blacksmithing past.  Great Grandfather and Grandfather helped to make wrought iron locks, hinges, gates and more n Colonial Williamsburg from 1929 to 1935.  You can see samples of these items – including the original namesake anvil – in the park’s general store.
