If you're looking for a sleepy spot to relax and enjoy that isn't inundated with tourists, this is the place. This lovely lake campground has spacious sites, most are level and graveled, picnic tables, pit toilets, potable water on site, a lodge style restaurant for meals and drinks, and hiking trails right from the campground. Everything is kept neat and tidy, and the boat launch is not far from the campground. The launch is very shallow, so you're not going to get a surf boat in, or a large pontoon boat either, which is part of why this lake is still peaceful. Lots of opportunity to kayak, paddle board and swim. It's pet friendly, and campers regularly leave their water toys, kayaks, canoes, etc., on the shoreline during their stay with no fear of them being stollen. The hike to Holland Falls is suitable for beginners and children, but be aware that it's rocky when you reach the falls, and dogs and children should be supervised in that area. There are both black and grizzly bears that frequent this area daily, so be very careful with your food, and bear aware when hiking. My last stay was only 2 nights, and I ran into two bears, one that strolled right by my trailer. This is my favorite camp ground for an escape from reality!
This is, hands down, my favorite camping spot! You are right at the mouth of the Bob Marshall Wilderness for hiking exploring needs! Holland Lake is beautiful year round! There is a beautiful waterfall that is visible from the camp ground and is a fairly easy hike too. Camp ground has a lot amenities and the Holland Lake Lodge is also there if your in need of something a little extra! Don’t miss out!
Holland Lake is very pretty and the campground is in good shape. I didn’t get to go to the falls because there was a dead mule off the trail which drew attention of some grizzlies. The campground is well shaded which kept the temperatures down even on s hot day. The mosquitoes were pretty bad in early July.
Excellent views of Holland Lake and the waterfall. Quick access to swimming, boat launch, and hiking trails to falls, etc.
This is one of my favorite spots in Montana. The lake itself is gorgeous, and the camping spots are beautiful. There's even one site on the island, if you brought a canoe or kayak, as we did! There's a short hike up to the waterfall and a longer hike to upper waterfalls. The water on the lake is crystal clear, and while motor boats are allowed, people appreciate the quiet a bit more. There are views in all directions, the camping is quiet, the sunsets are beautiful. There are mosquitoes, but they're not terrible, so bring some bug spray and you should be fine. As always, please practice LNT!

Great place for families…clean, quiet, right by the lake. The hike to the Holland Falls is short but totally worth it! Clean lake perfect for swimming and paddleboarding. Will definitely come again!
