Park features a sandy beach that is sometimes closed owing to water safety (bacteria readings). Hawk tower is a popular observation point. There is also a large day use area for picnics, games, dog walking, or whatever. Trout pond for fishing. Nice recreational trail. Plenty to do in the area especially if you like visiting wineries. Sites start at $33 (unserviced). 15 and 50 amp sites are also available, as well as water connections. Some turnover in staff including a new park superintendent means some old problems have finally been addressed to the park's betterment. Enforcement has been stepped up. Parkview campground has been closed and is returning to its natural state. Marshview remains open and is frequently booked to capacity on weekends, so reserve well in-advance. 3/4 of park is seasonals. Very laid back and peaceful. Officers address any noise/rowdiness promptly. Lots are mostly shaded and of good quality, although not as private as what some provincial parks offer. Not all is rosy though: the comfort station is frequently closed on the weekends owing to problems with their septic system pump failing. Portajons are provided but many campers are disappointed to find showers, laundry, and bathrooms closed by Sunday morning. Staff are working diligently to find a permanent solution. Also, pedestal power can vary from site to site. Best to check your power with a meter or have in-line monitoring/protection in event of brownout. In conclusion and overall I'd like to say that in the last five years Holiday Beach Conservation Area has risen a few notches and is a fine place to stay whether you are a tent camper, RV'er, or seasonal. Both staff and guests are very nice to deal with. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly gate staff, camp store with basic needs, scenic walking trails, low user fees, beach. Initial impression was good. But there are no conservation officers - and it shows. The park office closes at 9pm whereupon the area becomes a free-for-all, supposedly with municipal police patrolling (we saw them drive through twice in the afternoon). The bathroom facilities consisted of a trailer on a platform (not handicap accessible) which was absolutely filthy. At the CG, the screaming of profanities, loud stereos, harvesting of firewood from the forest, cruelty to wildlife, etc. only left us wondering what it must be like after 9 when the park closed. Neighbors were pretty rowdy and we decided to break camp early and not spend the night rather than take our chances staying there overnight. Now please keep in mind that there are TWO camp grounds within Holiday Beach. We apparently picked the wrong one in our quest to get a spot close to the waterfront. There is a no-alcohol campground closer to the park entrance which is also resident for some seasonal campers who probably don't put up with any nonsense. The no-alcohol camp site also has a proper comfort station with showers. If you are a family camper looking for a safe and peaceful place to stay and not a carload of underage drinkers looking for somewhere to party with impunity, you may want to pick your campsite from the ones in the nicer campground closer to the park office. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
