Was a great place. I was going there from 1975 till 79 when I moved away, No Pics But still remember going to The Ice cream place and getting that frozen choc covered banana's for the kids. Says Nick Martin
Yes, a Church group owns the property now. Lots of changes, all the old building and playgrounds are gone. A large church
building has been completed and in use. It looks like they are building a school. Says Rob|
I loved Holiday Lake! It was actually open through at least 1989, as I learned how to swim there when I was 7. The gate is still there,
|| ||which is really cool, but the property is now occupied by a mega church. Says Amy|
So sad...i loved that place as a kid.... My church used to have its annual picnic there every June in the 70's.... The property is gone, but the memories remain! Wish more people had pictures. Says Karen
Went there every summer in 1960 to 1969 about 5 times per summer. Loved it.

The lake was a popular day vacation spot for people from South Jersey and Philadlephia...from the 50's through 70's!!! There was a lake, swimming pool, concession stand, mini golf, picnic area etc. From what was said before it was sold, they were being forced to sell because of rising insurance rates from of frivolous lawsuits. It sat decaying for years - outside there's a really cool retro style gate right out of the 50's & the sign says Holiday Lake. Beyond it lies a dried out swimming pool full of dirt & grass growing out of it. Dilapidated buildings that were once changing rooms surround the lake. You used to be able to rent bathing suits. There's an old decaying minature golf course and abandoned playground. The entire scene is creepy. Property was bought by a church.
