We stayed at this campground over the 4th of July weekend. We had called ahead for reservations the previous week and had gotten a site with a full hook-up. When we arrived, it was clear that the campground was probably near capacity, and we were somewhat apprehensive that it might be uncomfortable. We were very wrong. Our site (#96) was very large, measuring about 40 x 60 feet. The neighboring sites were equally large. The sites behind use were beyond a wide section of woods, and were a bit hard to see. The overall campground is the same way. While the sites are not paved, they are level, and have a firm sand base with a topcoat of pine needles from the densely wooded area. The camp store has an attached banquet hall with game room and bar for social events. It has a rustic character that is reminiscent of many camping-themed movies. The lake is fairly large and nice to look at, but shallow. We did not swim in it. We were very pleased with this campground and would certainly stay here again.
After staying at a couple dozen campgrounds across the USA and Canada, we were very disappointed with this campground. When we drove into Williamsburg,VA, we had great hopes for our stay, and after navigating a rather circuitous route, we arrived at Anvil Campground. The first thing that we noticed is that the overall campground is narrow and crowded, and it sits between a railroad line (that ran about 10 trains per day) and a very busy two lane road. On the other side of the railroad is another busy road. We paid for a premium "laser-leveled" site. The site was flat, and long, but recent rain had left some muddy spots among the crushed stone. Half of the width of the site is taken up with stone, while the remainder is dirt/old pine bark, cordoned off with landscape timbers. There was not enough width to accommodate our outdoor patio rug without overrunning the timbers. We would not stay here again.
