Want to stay near Williamsburg and get bicycles to bike in Williamsburg. Any campground suggestions?

Do you want to be close to colonial Williamsburg, or the huge outlet malls, or??? Biking on Route 60 is possible, but how far do you want to ride?

American Heritage is the place to stay. Biking between there and down Rt 60 would be dangerous. Driving is dangerous. Transporting bikes downtown is the only wise option.
But generally speaking it very walkable.

Want to visit Williamsburg. No malls. Want safe biking; maybe a campground beside a trail leading to Williamsburg.

We enjoyed out stay at Chickahominy county park. They do have some full hook up sites right on the river. We'd not known it was even there if not for the recommendation of friends that used to live in the area.

We're headed out on the 28th for two nights in DC at Chery Hill, then heading down to Williamsburg for the weekend. We picked Anvil because they advertize transit to and from the campground to the downtown area hourly, and we're going naked (no car). All of the campgrounds in the area look very nice, and I've heard very good things from both American Heritage and Anvil. We'll post up after the trip with our ratings.

I stayed at Anvil and found it to be OK. Ask about the public transportation. I was told that it leaves much to be desired so didn't use it. Take your earplugs, there is a busy highway right behind it, Amtrak runs all day in front of it, freight trains run all night and there is a very busy highway across the tracks. Did I mention the airport?

We heard from a few people that the Koa by Williamsburg is nice. Going to stay there next year.

Stayed at Anvil. Very cooperative staff. Drove RV to visitor's center and parked it in RV parking to be able to ride. Bought tickets and had a great day and evening.

IMHO, American Heritage is the best choice in Williamsburg, having tried all the others. That being said, I don't think biking to the Visitor Center is an option from any of the local campgrounds. The traffic is heavy and most roads are not very bike friendly. The Colonial Parkway is good for riding, but there are no campgrounds on it, that I am aware of.

You are considering riding you bikes in one of the most congested areas in the state outside the DC area. I would rent a car if not towing. Lived in that area for 20 years and biking on those roads is not safe in my opinion.

There are no Campgrounds by a trail that leads to Colonial Williamsburg. CW has free parking and a bus system though.

We stayed at American Heritage and we would definitely stay there again.

Without a doubt, you picked the best in the two worlds you are visiting. Cherry Hill is a great place. Very big with lots of commercial amenities, but that's not what makes it great. You have direct access to Washington, DC and Northern, Va right from the front gate. Pick up your tokens in the office and away you go (once you get to the metro station you'll have to purchase passes).

I've stayed at American Heritage and Anvil. AH has upgraded their sites and all are concrete pads with patios whereas Anvil are gravel (well maintained) and I think a bit shorter. Either place would be nice for you to stay in but, with your desire to take your bikes into town, Anvil's the way to go, The buses and trolleys have bike racks on them.
