We stayed here two nights, and while the staff was very friendly, and overall the bathrooms/showers are clean, it's missing the camping feel. We felt a majority of the campers were residential or seasonal campers, so it felt very empty. Our site was dry and electric for our motorhome worked fine, but we did not have a sewer hookup on...

If you like cold dirty showers, Mosquitos so thick you are hesitant to go outside, and trains shaking you awake at 4:00 in the morning then this is the place for you!! When I mentioned the showers were cold they told me "they were warm yesterday".

Younger kids running around yelling and a screaming all hours of the night with no supervision at all. The white haired lady in the store was extremely rude,and sarcastic while the other lady was oblivious to her. The water smells, the playground is nothing but a Place for kids to get splinters. There is no security in the park at... More

I have been camping at Holiday Acres for six years. I have never experienced any of the problems listed below. -The pool is not 'dirty.' It's an outdoor pool, how do you not expect a few bugs or such to fall in it. Although the pool was broken, it's not like it was there fault. the pipes cracked in the... More

After reading reviews about this place and against better judgment, we booked a weekend here. Here's what we found: The pool was empty and no fence around it to prevent someone from falling in. The bathrooms and showers were completely disgusting and dirty. The staff was rude and combative when asked about the pool and children's activities, which there are... More

We are seasonal campers for the past six years and really enjoy this place. The seasonal rates are very reasonable. They have great activities for kids. The park is very clean and well kept. They also have an onsite restaurant and bar.

We have stayed at Holiday Acres Resort several times over the last couple of years. Each time has been great. We have a motor home and have had no problems with the sites or the customer service. The prices there are lower than at other resorts. We love that they have a small lounge there and food available if we... More

We hadn't been camping for many years and thought it would be fun to go somewhere "close" to home. We stayed Friday thru Sunday. Our sight wasn't bad. $30 a night for site, water and electric. Bathrooms were "ok". I do have to say that things looked somewhat "rundown". There was an employee driving around on a cart all weekend... More

Stayed one night. Planned on 2 but left early. Although our site was pretty the rest of the facility was run down and nothing was available. The store was closed, the pool was never open although we were told it would be by 10. I would not have gone swimming anyway. Broken chairs and dirty. The bathrooms needed upkeep. My... More
