Getting Outdoors

With a scenic lake right on your doorstep when you camp in this beautiful state park, it makes perfect sense that many of the most popular activities are water sports.

If you're visiting in summer, the best way to kick off your stay is to go for a swim in Holliday Lake. Lifeguards patrol the swimming area from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day, but you can also swim at your own risk outside these times. The lake offers an excellent way to cool off at the height of summer, and a bathhouse and snack bar are located nearby.

If you'd rather get out on the water, you might like to rent a boat. The park offers kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, paddleboats, and jon boats for hire from early April until the end of October, ensuring that there's something to keep campers of all ages happy. There's even a self-guided trail — the Sunfish Aquatic Trail — to help you take in some of the best local scenery.

While you're out exploring the lake, try your luck catching a fish or two. Crappie, catfish, chain pickerel, and yellow perch can all be caught here, but take note that only electric motors are allowed on the lake. You'll also need a valid Virginia fishing license before you wet a line.

The other main activity in Holliday Lake State Park is hiking. There are seven trails to explore, with a range of routes to suit different fitness levels. If you're looking for something quick and easy, the Dogwood Ridge Trail starts and ends at Redbud Campground. The Lakeshore Trail offers a much longer challenge at just under six and a half miles, not to mention some beautiful vistas of the lake. And if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can take the Carter Taylor Connector Trail to link up with a 10.2-mile loop trail in the Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest.

Camping at Holliday Lake State Park

Outdoor enthusiasts camping in an RV at Holliday Lake State Park have two campgrounds to choose from. Rent an RV in Appomattox County and then find a site that can accommodate your motorhome rental.

Laurel Ridge Campground is the smaller of the two camping areas and features seven sites that can accommodate RVs up to 40 feet in length. These crushed stone sites are back-in only, and most enjoy partial shade to protect you in the heat of summer. All sites offer 20-, 30-, and 50-amp electrical hookups as well as water hookups.

Redbud Campground can accommodate trailers and pop-ups up to 30 feet in length, with tents also welcome. Some sites can be reserved in advance while others are available upon arrival. Water and electrical hookups with 20- and 30-amp service are provided to these asphalt sites. A mix of back-in and pull-through sites are available.

No matter which campground you choose, all sites have their own picnic table, grill, and lantern post. An RV dump station is provided, while pets are welcome in the campground. However, if you're visiting Holliday Lake State Park with your dog, you'll need to make sure your pet is leashed and attended at all times.

The campgrounds are open from early March until early December. If you're not RV camping, the park offers a bunkhouse for rent.

Exploring the Area

While there's a long list of experiences on offer in Holliday Lake State Park, you'll be happy to learn that there's also plenty to do in the surrounding area.

For example, if you'd like to stay awhile in another of Virginia's beautiful state parks, Bear Creek Lake State Park is around 45 minutes away to the northeast. This park has a little something for everyone, from hikers and horseback riders to archers and anglers.

History buffs will be fascinated by the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park in nearby Appomattox. The McLean House, where the Confederate Army officially surrendered the Civil War, is open for tours. Guided programs and events recall the historical significance of this site, so be sure to check the events schedule when planning your visit.

If you want to head for a major center, Lynchburg is around 45 minutes west. When you get there, make sure you treat the kids to a hands-on experience at the Amazement Square children's museum.
