Holliday Lake State park was a nice weekend getaway and highly recommend it due to its convenient location to the McClean House (General Lee's surrender-Civil War). The campsites are large sites with plenty of trees around you to feel intimate and private. The down side...More

so clean, swimming areas, picnic areas, clean restrooms, I take my two Papillons there to run and play. Trails and camper sites available. I do not live too far away and am thrilled to have a place like this to go to

If you are interested in hiking, don't bother with this park. The lakeshore trail (6.3 miles) was in terrible shape. It was poorly marked and at places there was no indication where the trail was. One of the bridges was out and one of the...More

No complaints but slightly isolated if you like to be near town & activities or places to eat. Vert Peaceful. Nice Staff. Edge of the Lake. Rules to comply with. Reminds you of an old fashioned camp back in the day!
