Beautiful woods

Sites were spacious, we loved the national forest.

Popular Place!

This is a giant recreation area that features a campground, 3 lakes, tons of trails, and even a splash zone for kids. The campground has it all, electric, cabins, playgrounds, basketball courts, etc… The lakes are nice and there are tone of options of things to do and places to explore. Ideal for families and people who like to camp but aren’t into the “rustic” part.

Great Spot Only 1 Hour From Home

Spent 2 night in the Aspen Loop tent camping. Minus the silk/inch worms in the trees it was great. Fire pit was large and bathrooms were clean. We did a 6 mile hike and some fishing. Great easy quick weekend away.

Holly Rec Rules!

I love camping here even though it’s not far away from home whatsoever. The trillium and oak loops are heavily wooded and have plenty of space between each site - something that’s rare in campgrounds these days.


The site was very clean, loved how big the showers were. Staff at check-in/out are very friendly.

Great hiking!

Loved the length of the trails. Easy terrain to work on pacing yourselves. Even found a spot to stop off and chill out in our hammock! It was a very hot day (85+) but the hike is very shaded!

Everything to do

Holly Rec is huge and there is so much you can do. Camping is pretty secluded. Lots and lots of hiking available , pets allowed which is awesome, disc golfing , lakes for great kayaking and there is a wonderful beach! Something for everyone! you can get away here , and take a much needed break from real life.

Great park... pest problem

The campground and other areas of the park are great. good fishing and good sized sites. the only issue is the raccoons that have overrun the campground once the sun goes down… no joke.

Early Season Camping

I stayed in the rustic Aspen loop and it was fine for early season but come peak season, the sites lack privacy and are kind of small. It’s not a bad walk to modern restrooms and it was very quiet. This was a fine campground for close to home camping and I will probably be back.

Beautiful park, great campers!

Wonderful park with hiking trails and beautiful lakes. Campsites are wooded and pretty private. Love the park staff!
