Holliday Lake State Park is a state park located within the confines of Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest in Virginia. The land was cleared as farmland in the 1880s before being returned to its forested state in the mid-20th century.

The park was one of four recreational areas developed by the Virginia Division of Forestry (now the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation) working in conjunction with the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Depression. The central water feature at Holliday Lake is the 150-acre man-made lake. Contributing resources include Picnic Shelter #1, Wellhouse (c. 1939), the Dam/Spillway/Bridge/Lake, Drainage Culvert, Retaining Wall, and the Park Circulation System. Adjacent to the park is the separately listed Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.

A beautiful lake park with swimming, hiking, camping and boating. Wonderful hiking trail. We did the Lakeshore Trail. 6.3 miles. Leaving the park we saw a Mama Bear and two cubs. How cool is that..... more »
Great VA State Park with a nice campground and beautiful lake. Plenty of trails, with a nice beach area and a boat launch. Beware of the snakes though, as there seems to be an abundance in and around the fishing area and boat launch. Mostly harmless, but I've seen water moccasins on several occasions.
This is a very nice, clean park. The park rangers were all very friendly and helpful. There's pretty much no cell phone signal throughout the park so plan accordingly if that's important to you.
