We stay at Chippokes State Park on the south side of the James River. You'll need to take a 30min free ferry ride which accomodates cars, rv and tractor trailers. At the northern slip, the Jamestown ships will be docked next to the bridge. The campground is located on a plantation with a farming museum and a plantation house open for touring. The campground has two loops with Loop "B" being the newest with paved sites and a few pull through site. Each site has water, 30amp electric and the sites are rather large. I think, don't quote, the fee per night was $24 (there may be a pet fee). Be sure to take in a tavern and be sure to stop by the armory where a reconstruction is on going.
We are going to Williamsburg also this summer and from all recommendations we are going to go to American Heritage. There is a closer campground to Colonial Williamsburg but everyone warns about the trains that go by next to that campground - so we will try American Heritage first and while we are there check out others for future trips.
We have been to Colonial Williamsburg many times (but not by RV) and there is large vehicle parking including RVs at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitors Center parking lot. Parking is free. There is no overnight parking permitted. Once at the visitors center you take the CW shuttle bus into the historic area - along with everyone else. The shuttle bus requires a Colonial Williamsburg Visitors Pass/Ticket which you purchase inside the Visitors Center. It is possible to also walk from the Visitors Center into the historic area. Allow several days for CW for your visit. And there are a lot of other things to see in the area as well.
Oh yes, 1775. You refer to Anvil Campground. We stayed there a few years back.
Nothing like sleeping at 3:00am and then having a two mile coal train come by. It shakes the entire camper like a New York subway. And then, if you're lucky, the Amtrak will come by a little later. They've got a horn that'll raise the dead.
