  • It is a beautiful recreation area, walking trails and fishing. There is also disc golf in this park. Great fun for those who play. It is just a nice place to take a picnic lunch. Very quiet.  more »

  • Lots of secluded sites in the woods if you like privacy or open areas great for groups. Nice sturdy fire rings lined with concrete. Roads and blacktop pads are in good condition as are the bathroom/shower facilities. Bathrooms/shower houses are spaced very far apart.
  • My family comes here to play disc. The course is beautiful. a tad tight together in areas. But a really nice course. There seems to be lots to do at the Holly Rec area. I see people walking, fishing, biking.
  • Love the hiking trails. The kayaking. The swimming. The snow shoeing. Beautiful scenery with all year activities.
  • I've only played this course a few times its pretty good id recommend it to any disc golf fan
  • The ice fishing would be better if they open the other gates during winter. We tried our best out there and just got a couple dinks. I really want to do good on these lakes one day but I never have.
