According to Sarah Lankford, Office Manager at Holliday Lake State Park, exciting things are happening at the park!
Seven new campsites are under development. The campsites are spacious to accommodate larger camping equipment that is becoming more popular, with plenty of room to relax and enjoy nature. Each site will accommodate equipment up to 40 feet long, have a gravel drive, picnic table, lantern post, campfire circle, 30 and 50 amp electrical service and water hook up. The sites are situated in a quiet, wooded area with plenty of space between campsites. None of the campsites at this park are waterview or near the lake, however this is a beautiful park that offers hiking, camping, lake swimming in summer, fishing, as well as paddleboat rentals.
Conveniently located near the new campsites will be a new bathhouse. It is the new design with separate showers, a dishwashing station, and a drinking fountain. Also under construction is a new dump station.Later on, we’ll add a tent camping area with five campsites that can be reserved for groups. The construction is due to be complete sometime in 2010.
