Holly River State Park

Holly River State Park
Holly River State Park

Holly River State Park boasts over 8000 acres of natural forest with streams and amazing waterfalls. The campsites all have water, electric, grill, and trash cans and there is a dumping station inside the park. The campgrounds are a one mile drive into the woods, with camp sites darting off in simple loops. Each section (there are 4) has a bathroom/shower facility. The sites are mostly gravel, with some asphalt sites, usually reserved for handicap access.

We met Monoca, the camp hostess on our trip. She was very friendly and helpful. Their registration system is interesting: you can reserve a site, even a particular site and some are first come first served.

They use a post at the head of each site with a clamp to hold a card, so you can see if the site is taken; also, their park ranger will write the date of your departure on the card, so if you cruise the park, you can see when people are leaving.

During our stay, they were about 10% capacity, so the place was quiet. I could imagine it on Memorial Day weekend…

Here's the sign with all their rules. You can find their contact information below, too.

Like all other places we visit, we've compiled a photo album. You can find it on the photo page, above and left, or get their directly by clicking here.

Overall impressions: nice facilities, handicap accessible rest rooms, very tall trees and the steady sound of rushing water lullabied us to sleep.
