Christopher Run Campground is on the SouthWest edge of Lake Anna, which is SouthWest of Fredericksburg, VA.
From Frederick, there are two ways to get there:
1) US-15 South, all the way to Culpeper, VA, then take US 522 South. From the intersection with VA Rt 20 (BP station on the corner (last gas for miles!)), go about 13 miles; Christopher Run will be on your left. If you get to Wares Crossroads, you missed it; turn around!
2) I-270 South to Washington Beltway, I-495 South into Virginia, to I-95 South, down to Fredericksburg. Take exit 130B onto VA Rt 3 (Plank Rd) West. Go approx 2.4 miles, then turn left onto Rt 610 (Old Plank Rd). Stay on 610 for approx. 3.5 miles, then turn left onto Rt 612 (Catharpin Rd). Stay on 612 for approx. 11.9 miles (NOTE: the name changes to Pamunkey Rd after crossing Rt 608 (Robert E Lee Dr.)) until it intersects/joins Rt 606 (Post Oak Rd). Continue on Post Oak Rd for approx. 0.9 miles, then turn left onto the continuation of Rt 612 (now Stubbs Bridge Rd). Stay on 612 for approx. 7.4 miles, until it intersects/joins Rt 719 (Belmont Rd). Stay on 719 for approx. 2.5 miles until it intersects with US 522. Turn right onto 522. Christopher Run will be 1/2 mile ahead on the right.
Unless you live down around DC, I recommend option 1.
