Holly shores is no doubt a nice campground - clean, well kept, lots of trees, quiet at night, friendly staff. You could argue, that during peak season a back-in site with partial hook-ups is worth 70 bucks. You could also argue, that at this rate, showers (where the shower heads don't come out of the ceiling and where you can adjust the temperature) should be included as well as Wi-Fi and a washer load should cost maybe 2.5 instead of 3.5(!). Also, the Wi-Fi signal is weak in some areas of the park, so use the one hour free access to make sure it works on your site before wasting money. This place has written 'greed' all over it and I won't return.

Park itself is well kept and clean, everything works as you can expect from a KOA. I give only six stars because I think that 69 USD for a pull-through with water & electric is way too expensive. If the price and traffic noise don't bother you, this is a recommendable park, however.

Date of Stay:

I was quite unsatisfied. The staff was unfriendly. The Wi-Fi was so bad (either not even possible to log on or very sluggish if you were lucky enough to got connected), it was one of those occasion when it'd been better to not have Wi-Fi at all. Given that the park advertises Wi-Fi as one of its amenities in big letters on their sign, this seems like a bad joke. When I mentioned the difficulties to the staff, they didn't seem to care and tried to tell me some nonsense about certain devices that wouldn't connect. The bathrooms/restrooms are ok and were clean, however when I was taking a shower, the water got cold at the end of my "washing cycle". Both of these issues, the not working Wi-Fi and insufficient supply of warm water, give you the impression that the management tries to maximize the profit by packing as much campers/RVers in the park as possible without making the necessary enhancements in the parks infrastructure to meet the demands of an increased amount of guests. This is a pity since the park itself is ok, has nice views and is considerably quiet. Could be a good park, but the way it is managed right now I wouldn't stay here again but look for some place else (which I actually did the two consecutive nights).

Wow, nice park with very nice and clean showers, friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Used this park as an overnight stop. WiFi worked well the night we arrived (the next morning it was broken, at least the owners were immediately attending the problem and trying to fix it). Laundry facilities worked fine as well, and apart from some reckless neighbor who was loading/unloading his pickup for about an hour early in the morning at about 1:30 am, but who should have left by now, it was quiet during the night. Sites are all grassy, but rather level and spacious enough also for big rigs. Park offers Good Sam rates. Can recommend this place.

Nice and well maintained park. Despite the fact that it's directly at the road, it is rather quiet. There are back-in as well as pull through sites, suitable also for big rigs. Each site has a fire ring. Wi-Fi is only available close to the office building, but is working fine. Restrooms/showers were clean and in good condition. They have a small store with some basic stuff. Good value, would stay here again.

Yup, this park has seen its best days long ago. Appliances in restrooms and showers are old and jittery, there is neither paper towels nor a hand dryer in the restroom. Upon check-in there is no explanation where restrooms/showers, laundry etc. are or if there is WiFi and if you need a password to use it - you have to ask for this. Here and there is a little bit of trash around and the sites are not well maintained. You need quarters for the showers. I'm definitely not the spoiled kind and since there weren't any other real problems I'd be willing to put up with all these shortcomings if they didn't charge 34 USD per night. Won't stay here again.

Good things about the park: the sites are nice, the surroundings are beautiful and it's quiet. The park is also quite easy to find since they put signs at the crossings. Not so good and reason why I give only a 7-rating: There's only one single restroom-shower for each men & women which in addition, wasn't very clean. Both weren't right away disgusting but dusty. The trash bins were full and seemed as if they haven't been cleaned for a couple of days. The WiFi is only available in a small area of the park and the signal is weak. Would stay here again, still.

Date of Stay:

The reason why I give only a five-rating: Park isn't particularly nice, it looks like a supermarket parking lot with the difference that it's grassy. The only bathrooms are located at the entrance which means the closer you're to the shore, the longer you have to walk there. The showers/restrooms were rather clean, but the hand dryer wasn't working and no paper towels available. Wi-Fi wasn't working anywhere in the park when I've been there and the staff didn't seem to eager to have it fixed. The rate is for a ocean front site. Sites that are further inwards are cheaper. If I stayed there again, I would chose one of those.

Nice clean and considerably calm RV park. Only downside - a big one however - is that they don't have showers & restrooms, that's why I rate it only 7. Wi-Fi was working well and staff was very friendly.

We enjoyed our two nights' stay here. Despite the fact that there are a few old, rusty vehicles in the park, it's quite nicely laid out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathroom facilities are a bit old but were functional and clean. If I recall correctly they have AAA discounts. The interstate is close, so you'll hear a bit traffic noise. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice RV park, very well organized. Nice and clean pool and hot tub. Restrooms and bathrooms were very clean and rather new, only the cinnamon stench from the air fresheners was disturbing. Wi-Fi worked well, too. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again and can recommend the park. They have a Good Sam discount.

Park is OK. What I disliked: When I arrived, I first had to empty the holding tanks and thus went to the dump station. When I was almost finished and wanted to proceed to my site, a woman (maybe the owner) approached me and asked some questions - she obviously wanted to make sure that I was not some unregistered guest using the dump station. Which is her good right but the way she did that was kind of rude (e.g. she could have introduced herself). They don't have free Wi-Fi; there is a service available which you can try first for one hour before signing up and paying. Which is a good thing because when I've been there before and the connection was horrible. Also they don't seem to enforce their rules very strictly - dogs like pitbulls and the like are not allowed in the park, according to the rules, but there was one tenant with a bull terrier. Although the dog seemed too sluggish due to his obesity to be a threat, I'd prefer not to encounter those kind of dogs in a campground. Apart from that I would stay there again for a night or two. Restrooms and showers were clean, laundry facilites worked and the rest of the staff I encountered did better than the (supposedly) owner.

A nice park and a good place to relax. Would stay here again. The shooting range in the vicinity is the only thing that is a bit disturbing.

The park provides sites for permanent mobile homes, as well as for RVs. The areas are separated. Stayed there for one night and enjoyed the stay. The park is a bit down the hill from Highway 101, so I couldn't make out any traffic noise and it was pleasantly quiet in the park. There's a pool in the area where the RV sites are. RV sites are a bit too close for my liking but you should still be able to use your slide outs. Staff was friendly. Wi-Fi is only available at the office/laundry, but is working fine. It's a nice place to relax for a few days if you got nothing else to do but to sit outside your rig and read a book. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed for four nights in this park. Had a site in the loop on the hill which has nice views. Restrooms and showers were clean and well functioning. Wi-Fi was working ok, however, the signal is not equally good throughout the park. On the hilltop it was rather weak and you had to walk down to the bench where the bird watching area is. Would stay here again and can recommend this park.
