Why would anyone want to camp here? It is located between highway 401 (a major trucking route) and Windsor Airport, so the noise never stops at any time - day or night. It is full of loud drunk people on busy weekends, not to mention the seasonals driving their golf carts around at midnight. The full service sites are basically a large open space with hardly any foliage at all, and you feel like you are in some trailer park, crammed in on top of one another. The owner is quite miserable and will find a way to have a problem with you. The wood is overpriced - you get around 8 pieces for $7.50, and the store is under-stocked. There are many other campgrounds in the area, and even though they may be a longer drive to Windsor, it would be completely worth it to make the longer trip. It may be okay for young singles (the required age is 21 to rent a site for some reason, not 18 or 19), but it isn't a place I would take a family who wants to go camping to get away from a busy life in the city. Sure, there may be a pool, fishing, and a playground, but what campground doesn't have this, at least nearby. After the experiences we've had here (and we are quite tolerable), we don't plan on ever returning. - Bob_T

Store was understocked. Mini golf was extremely poor quality. No privacy. Bring ear plugs - Too close to the 401.
Located minutes from downtown, which was convenient. Sites are way too small and fire pit was in fair condition. Staff was accommodating but not overly friendly. We felt a little mislead by what was advertised on the website and what the conditions were when we arrived. - A_0

The cg is laid out in several sections. My lot was fairly level with full hookup. Roads are dirt and makes for a dusty environment when the wind is blowing right. Staff was friendly and helpful. Monitored the park on a regular basis. The park is about a half mile from Hwy. 401 and sometimes you could hear the road noise. but not often and not too loud. Appears to be many permanent residents. They were in an area of their own. A large pond has fish (catch & release). Wash room and showers were clean, free and large. Downtown Windsor is about 25 minutes away. I would stay there again. - eaf14131

The sites are pull-through gravel and grass with good utilities and an open sky for dish, located on the fairgrounds. WiFi was good and fast and the office staff was great. The laundry is small and you need a prepaid card from the office to operate-no coins. This is an excellent base in the Detroit metro area, close to fuel, restaurants, and shopping. - ronboett

This is a fairgrounds with a campground included on the grounds. It is very open and sunny. The sites are grass, mostly back-in with a few pull-throughs. There has been a lot of rain in the area, and some sites were still quite soft when we arrived. The staff in the office were helpful and professional; most concerned about getting us into a site that our diesel pusher would have a solid surface. Full hook-ups. No playground but lots of paved and gravel interior roads and grassy space for kids to run, play and ride bikes. Campers everything from pickup shells to 45 foot buses. Very close to a number of fast food and sit down restaurants, plus a gate/sidewalk out the back to walk to the Walmart. Picnic tables and fire rings provided. Very nice stay. - Pktva

Grounds fairly clean and all utilities worked well. This time of year there are lots of sites available here and it is not crowded so maneuvering the park was fairly easy. We have a 42 foot fifth wheel (about 20K lbs) and had a problem with the site we were assigned. Our site had a hole filled with water and mud fairly close to where we had to park to reach the utilities. The person checking us in seemed fairly friendly at first and escorted us to our site. When the water/mud issue was pointed out to her, all went downhill from there. We asked more than once to just please move us to another site and she refused. She seemed concerned with other sites already being assigned but would not simple go to the office and check so that we could take one of the sites without this problem. In looking around the grounds, it appears we were assigned the only site with standing/puddled water. With our size and weight coupled with the maneuverability of a fifth wheel, backing into the site was a bit difficult but was made much more so because she insisted on staying until we were in the site to her satisfaction (she kept wanting us to back across the site next to us instead of just backing into our site). We have been pretty much full time in a fifth wheel for over 10 years and do know how to back into sites. In order to level our rig, we had to put boards in the mud hole to make a stable surface for our 6 point leveling system. This was not our first time here and there are much better sites and many of them remained unoccupied during this stay. Mary said she was a volunteer here and was training another lady who will be a paid employee. The price you pay to stay here definitely should support employees and competent work campers who can maintain a more customer oriented and friendly attitude. We will definitely stay here again and hope that our next visit will be a better experience. - puppylover

We originally chose this park because of the proximity to Detroit and that was a big mistake. Crossing the border by bridge or tunnel was a major hassle. We will never even think about using this campground again and unfortunately it's not the campground's fault.
The facility was adequate and well kept, but if you don't play golf there's not much to do there. The sites were pull-thru and full hook-up, but they are all jammed in next to each other.
There is no park store on site in case you forgot something, but they do have ice and overpriced firewood.
The resort is filled with seasonal campers as well as park models, so I'm not sure the nightly rate reflects the lack of amenities. - semodan

Very large park, lots of seasonals. This seems to be largely a snowbird park. Our rate reflects an off-season discount of 10%, but it is still expensive. The transient sites are all pull-through but are back to back. Still, by parking the right direction, you can face away from your closest neighbor. The park is very open with only a few trees, and is surrounded by a golf course. We were here in the final week of operation, and the few other users all seemed to be full-timers like us, just staging to cross the very nearby US border at the appropriate time.
We would probably stay here again. - wandrr

This was the first campground we have ever experienced as we are newbies to the RV world, but not to towing long trailers - we routinely tow a 36 foot utility trailer. Park closes and so does the gate at 8 pm, so if you're going to be late make sure you call and get the gate code. We found out quickly that "pull-through" isn't the same as "easy in". The spot was very tight to get into, with narrow in-roads. Park was very clean, lots of seasonal trailers. Golf course looks decent but didn't play it. No garbage pick-up, you have to carry it to a central spot. Owners were super-nice. - MaRVey and the Monster

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. - John-in-SWO

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. - John-in-SWO

We booked sites for multiple dates by calling and wanting to be on the lake side by side with my in laws. We called the first day they opened for the season. We went for Mother's Day weekend and those sites fit great, but we went to see the sites for the other weekends and they were too small. We went to the office directly after seeing them and they said there's nothing they could do. She even called the owner to the office and he said the same thing. He wasn't willing to work with us at all. The only thing he was willing to do was refund us our deposits and book us for different weekends. We had family and friends already planning on coming there for memorial weekend and the 4th of July. Now the other campgrounds are booked and we have nowhere to go. Very sad! - Lynnashl

Don't expect to have too much fun, they will shut you down even before 11pm. Security is rude and the elderly woman working there will complain about anything that makes noise. Keep your kids, pets and music at home, they don't want to hear it! I will not be back!! - KenCottongim

Office personal at desk and throughout stay not overly friendly. Closed office/store on Friday @7pm! People turned away behind me and were checking in!
Maintenance staff don't appear professional. Wagon ride was a tractor going in 5th gear super fast with the driver had a cigarette hanging out of his mouth.
Owner very argumentive with problems at site. We are retired and he even threatened to throw us out!
Area in back was all dirt. Tight with trees. Many run down permanent trailers in there.
This campground needs TLC. ASAP. - Nana R

Just arrived and found a nice clean campground. Large sites big enough for camper tow vehicle and two other cars. Friendly staff ready to help with anything. - MelanieSorenson

OK park. Nothing to really complain about, but noting of real note for me either. We were here to visit the Henry Ford and Greenfield Village, so not here to relax in the park so it fit our needs well. Site was level. The full timers have made their home here, and not in a bad way. Nicely kept up. I think I would camp at another park, just because of the closeness to the beach, not because our time here was unpleasant. - steammaker

We stayed here very early in the season and there was still snow on the ground. Mostly seasonal campers. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There are a lot of lakes around which is probably very attractive during the summer. Lots of place to walk the dogs. From what we saw we would stay here again. A bit pricey though. - Novi MI

This is a nice state park - with a lot of TLC this would be a great state park. No shade in the area where we were assigned - lots of open space for kids to play. We had a pull-thru site with gravel and grass. Utilities were good with 30 & 50 amps services. Our picnic table was not usable because some previous user set there charcoal briquette BBQ on it and almost set it on fire - large black charred circle in the middle of the table. The lake was close by and it was nice to walk on the beach - swim at your own risk. We had no neighbors - there were at least 5 or 6 sites between us and the next RV's. For a one night layover this is not bad. There is a a daily fee and then another park fee per day which ratchets up a decent per day cost to more than you would expect. No laundry facilities that we could find. Little bit of a drive to stores and restaurants . - Camino Travelers

This is a nice state park with no shade on the shore of Lake Erie. Paved, level sites. Electric sites do not have water hook-ups ($26). Full service sites cost more ($34). The catch is you must pay a daily recreation fee of $9 on top of this and a completely ridiculous fee of $6 for a toad behind your motorhome. As a stop over for one night the total cost of $41 is unacceptable in my opinion. - Al R

Stayed for tricker treating. Had a great time. Campground was full and very busy. Nice view of the lake kind of wet due to heavy rain. Not a lot of trees . Good biking trails. - Upcamper

This is a beautiful, peaceful park with 4 lakes and mature trees. The lakes are home to many ducks, geese, and swans, turtles, and fish. There is a high percentage of seasonal and park models throughout (many are families that have been coming here for decades) but all are well maintained. The roads are easily traveled by a big rig, and all sites around Lake #4 (Y & Z sites) will accommodate 45+ footers. AT&T signal is poor but acceptable (1-2 bars). We did not give it a higher rating because there are not enough laundry facilities for a park this size (2 laundry rooms with a total of 7 washers & 7 dryers). Also, despite nice long/deep sites, our fire ring is located 3 feet from a pine tree and 3 feet from a slope to the water, limiting use. Roads are dirt and frequently in need of grading, especially on the entrance road but also throughout the park. There was also a mixup with our reservation which couldn't be resolved. There's no off-leash dog park, but there's a county dog park just a couple of miles away (Lyon Oaks - $$). The Camp Store is only open on weekends during May/June until school gets out for the summer. Note that only about 1/3 of their sites have sewer hookups. There is a honey wagon that can be scheduled for something like $8-10 per trip. - a_elkins

Large park, nice setting. Very quiet at night, even over memorial day weekend. I would rate it better if it was managed better. They will not reserve sites because seasonal users get first pick. We were in a group, and our group, although when we made reservations,(we were assured we would be), were NOT near each other. The gave us a site that was promised to someone else, and that person had to go to office and complain as we were already there. Its like they didn't keep track of who was where. The grass isn't very well maintained. Lots of weeds and dandelions. I won't stay here again. - Greaseman93

Called on August 1st for Labor day weekend reservation (praying they had a space for us) and she said they had two spots left. Told us we would be in "L" section, which I wasn't thrilled about-being in a circle, not close to water, and near the front enterance. When we got there, she told us they squeezed us into spot G4. In front of the beach, with nothing but woods behind us. Amazing spot. Couldn't believe it. Beach was clean, quiet, and filled with good people. Quiet at night (even when sold out on Labor day weekend)...Literally our only complaint was that the water had some awful smell to it, methane/rotten eggs. Not a big deal relatively speaking. - RoyalOakAndy
