They allow pets, but have absolutely zero amenities for pets. There is no place for a dog to go to the bathroom, no shrubs, no grass, no common area, no pet area - nothing, not even an open area anywhere! Just paved roads and gravel sites. Considering that just about every RV has at least 1 dog and they have 100 sites, that's a lot of dogs with no place to "go". Also, the website claims full hook-ups, but by that they mean only water, electric, and sewer. There is no cable TV. When I asked about it, they said they had it 8 years ago, but it got to below zero degrees and that caused a problem that they haven't been able to fix yet?!? There is WiFi, but it is pretty slow. The site we have is very small, we have a 28' travel trailer and our truck has to be parked sticking out into the road. The site is all gravel with a tree between most sites and a picnic table. The sites do seem to be fairly level, I just wish there was a place to take my dogs, even an open common area somewhere instead of just wall to wall campsites.

I would have enjoyed our trip much more if there was cable TV so that we could have watched the Olympics. The camper next to us pulled in and asked me where to hook up his cable TV - so we aren't the only ones disappointed about that. The lack of anywhere to take the dog to potty is very disturbing and an inconvenience several times a day. I wish they would change that. If they gave up one campsite and fenced it in as a dog area, that would make a big difference! We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place to stay, when traveling around. Cold nights in the summer, warm days, perfect. All felt good, fishing right next to the RV (certain spots). Beautiful lake view, nice new restrooms, friendly people. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park. We were on a non-waterfront site. It was quite small. Not enough room to put out our awning. The waterfront sites look much better. Note however, you cannot swim in the lake at the park. You cannot launch or beach a boat from your site at the park if you have a waterfront site. They have rules against bicycling by kids, but everyone does it anyway. If you are using a site, they give you 10% off marina services (boat rentals, etc). No fire pits at the sites. We couldn't have a fire anyway due to the red alert fire danger. If I went back I would try to get a waterfront site, but the temptation of the water and not being able to swim would probably be too much for the kids. Also Wi-Fi showed as three bars, but we were not able to connect to it. I didn't investigate the issue with the office because we didn't need it. We were in site 38. Not far from the office. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall, this is a nice RV park in a nice location on Big Bear Lake. On the positive side, you are able to get a lake front site for a reasonable rate. The staff is very friendly and helpful and you can't beat the location for this park. In addition, there is a marina on-site and you can rent boats, jet skis, etc. and receive a 10% discount while staying at the RV Park. However, the sites are a little small and are mostly dirt so be prepared for dust everywhere due to the wind from the lake. In addition, the bathrooms are not very clean. Fortunately, I used the bathroom and shower in the RV or I would have not had a shower for a few days as I would not have taken one here. We have stayed here before and will do so again as there are limited options in Big Bear Lake, and we love the location. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The camp spot was dirty, water front was also dirty. Showers you have to pay. We will never come back. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped here for the last six years and every year it has been a pleasant experience. This year we made our reservations late and had to switch sites during our stay. We stayed on both the Lake View loop, which is the only loop with a view of the lake, and the Summer loop, which is right at the main entrance. All spots are back-ins, but with plenty of room. There are numerous trash bins, and many bathrooms and showers which are very clean and well-stocked. There are two dump stations which is very convenient if you are not staying at a hook-up site. Many tent camper sites as well, and plenty of park staff who frequently drive around to "maintain the peace," and they also sell firewood. A bike/jogging trail runs through the park, with lots of trees and squirrels. We would highly recommend this park. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great lakefront spots. Fish from your rig if you want. Boating rental access for all types of boats right there on site. We rented a pontoon boat that could hold 16 people for $60/hr. There is a Small playground with a couple swings and some beat up golf carts. This was end of season so it was pretty quiet. Just a long walk or short bicycle ride to Big Bear Village which was nice. We like to ride bikes with our kids in child seats on the back. The scenery on the horizon was fantastic but up close the campground is a bit weathered and dated but perfectly acceptable. They have just installed 1" rock in most of the campsites that it layed over landscape cloth so you are not right on the dirt. We will be back to stay again.

Well we were back this August like my last reviews says. As stated before, it was a good trip. The staff is very helpful, the park is clean, & the marina is nice. The only thing that I discovered this time that I didn't last time is the fact that the bathroom stalls in the mens room have no locks which I found to be strange. But anyway, the park is nice and there are some full-timers there, but you would never know by how clean they keep the sites. This park is definitely recommended by me.

If you like crowds this is the place. Very unclean, very crowded, our rig did not fit in its spot. The help is very rude. They don't care about their customers. We will never go back to this place. It is sad because the lake is beautiful but there are much nicer places at Big Bear Lake than this one. Campers Beware! We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very nice. My family and friends visited this park in August and it was just awesome. The staff there treated us very nice and were willing to answer any questions that we had. Myself, and a friend rented a slip for the weekend at the marina which was very nice to be able to boat and fish during the day. It is full hookups all I saw was 30 amp service, maybe they have 50 amp elsewhere in the park, but I'm not sure. The lakefront sites are by far the best, although other sites are cheaper. We enjoyed this park so much, that we are already making plans for next August. I would definitely recommend this park to everyone. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.
