Camping out under the stars is a magical way to get back to nature and wipe away the stresses of work life. Holiday Hill Campgrounds ticks all the boxes for a peaceful break and the best news for pet-parents is you can bring the family dog. If you’re heading from New York, the park is about a 6 hr drive to the rural town of Springwater, Livingston County, where the fun begins and your woofer is already sniffing the country vibe.
The campgrounds welcome your Collie, Bulldog, or Chihuahua with a few rules designed to keep everyone happy. Your pooch must be on-leash and is not allowed in the cabins, trailers, or pond fishing areas. Whether you’re pitching a tent or have arrived in an RV, it’s all good for you and the dog to embrace the wilderness ambiance that brings out the spirit of early pioneers who lived in wooden cabins, with wildlife close by.
Doggy etiquette is a must and you need to present a current rabies certificate when you arrive. Be sure to pack the doggy food and water bowls plus a stash of poop bags, as it's the campers job to pick up after their woofers. The camp rules state only two dogs per campsite are allowed and there is no extra fee to bring your fur-babies.
There’s no time to get bored with new friends to meet plus a ton of exciting activities on site for the kids, including an array of playgrounds and a DJ who provides music on weekends in the summer and fall months. There is a good-sized swimming pool to cool off under a hot sun and mini-golf for moms and dads. Picnic tables are dotted around the camp with lush, green grass and established trees for shade. Hiking trails through this 200-acre park are a fun family affair as camping days are all about relaxation and kicking your cares away.
That’s made fairly easy at this campground, where campers can hook up their trailer or RV to electricity with water and barbeque on a fire-pit. There is a choice of setting up camp on the grass or a more secluded, wooded-tree area where the kids can play Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest. The entire camp sits on a mountain so access up Marvin Hill road can be a steep challenge for large campers.
Holiday Hill Campgrounds offer all kinds of deals for overnight or monthly stays and are a super-popular retreat for getting back to nature with the kids and family pooch.
