For those wanting to camp at Big Hollow Creek Recreation Area in early October or for the Big Holloween event:

Reservable sites for October 2-8 will open up Friday, March 31, beginning around 8:00 AM. Non-reservable sites for that week will be available on a first come first serve basis as usual.

ALL sites within the park – reservable and walk up sites – for October 9-15 (the week of the Big Holloween event) will be awarded through a lottery system due to the incredible demand for sites for that week. We will take applications online via this form. At 2:00 PM on June 3 (which is the day of the Youth Jamboree event at the park), we will draw names and offer campsites to those campers in order drawn (no need to be present – we’ll contact campers to select their site in order drawn). We will also draw several names to add to a wait list and offer canceled or no-show sites to those on the waitlist in the order they were placed on it.

For more information, email us or call (319) 753-8260.
