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. Today, the park is known for its fishing opportunities.

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.

  • The park is very well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a lovely park and the lake was our favorite parr. The beach was great, but did get crowded and we caught fish...

  • Was very pleased with how nice and clean this lake was. I quit going years ago b/c it was nasty, but they have truly stepped it up and made it a great place to visit and enjoy. Very clean and many available picnic table areas which were clean and very well set up. Great job on making this lake desirable and worth the visit. Will definitely come back when I am able. Didn't go to the camping area..only the lake, but others have said that that area is kept well maintained as well.
  • Very nice park. The camping sites are well maintained and organized, even if they are a bit close together. The lake's beach is good and kept clean. The park provides the typical snack bar and boat rentals. Hiking trails are good.
