Only at Lake Holiday Camping Resort can you find peace and relaxation as easily as fun and games. Here, we have everything you need for the perfect vacation: if you want the action of the city, Chicago is just 60 miles away; but, if you’re looking to get away from it all, here at Lake Holiday Camping Resort, all you’ll see is the blue sky above and the greenness of nature all around. Still, you ask, what about me and my needs? Well, little do you know, but we have a full-stocked grocery store and restaurant. Every thing is taken care of here, from firewood and ice to the cartoons and movies; you will lack nothing during your stay. For your entertainment there is an eighteen-hole mini golf course, a nine acre fishing lake and recreation hall (with video games, pinball and a pool table). If that’s not enough, we have two swimming pools with a waterslide, ceramics, crafts, splash boats, and tennis and basketball courts available for you!!! For those of you that desire comfort, you’ll be happy to know that our sites are spacious, our restrooms and showers are very clean and we have full hook-ups, a disposal station and all the propane and camping supplies you could possibly need- if you forgot something, don’t worry about it, we even have RV sales! With so much to offer at such a great price, the purpose of your time-off suddenly becomes clear.

Lake Holiday, Demotte Indiana (formally a Jelly stone Park)


I want to start this review by stating that we (my sisters, mom and dad) stayed at this place hundreds of times when I was growing up in the 80’s and 90’s when it was a Jelly Stone. When reminiscing of our childhood this place always comes up as highlights of our summers.

When looking for a place to camp over the 4th of July holiday weekend we (my wife, 3 kids myself and one of my sisters and her family) discovered that Lake Holiday had available sites. Excitement does not express the feelings that my sister and I had heading back to our old stomping grounds to show it off to our fellow family members. We had heard that most of the place had turned into seasonal camping but this still did not deter us from wanting to try it out.

Upon arrival I was taken aback. It seemed like they took the old sites and turned each one into two sites. There were definitely way more campers per square foot then I remembered. We located our site and backed in the Pop Up. It did not look like any one had camped on our site or the ones adjacent for years. We had a difficult time finding the electrical and water hookups. It turned out they were down a hill about 35-40 feet away. I took a deep breath and hiked down the hill only to discover the breaker would not turn on. We went up to the front gate and explained the situation and they assured us that maintenance would be right over to see what could be done. They arrived within 5 minutes and after taking a look at the box they suggested we might want to find another site. They also told us they had never seen anyone camp at the sites we were at before, confirming my first thoughts on the sites. The maintenance guys were great! They did go get us a map of all the available sites and made some great recommendations. We did get a decent site in between 2 seasonal campers.

We set up the pop up and started to get ready for dinner. I had remembered this place as a restful, peaceful place. It could not be further from that now. One thing is for sure at Lake Holiday, the seasonal residents spare no expense with there stereo equipment!! Be it in their travel trailers or on the thousands of golf carts that roam the streets of the campground. A big sign on the front gate states that quiet hours are 11pm to 8am. Needless to say, the rules at Lake holiday are not enforced. The first evening was like a parade of golf carts starting around 6 p.m. and lasted until after I tried to go to bed at 1 am. This was almost tolerable compared to the concert level decibels coming from next door. This did end about 1:30. We awoke around 8am and started breakfast. By 9am a site 2 or 3 down from us must have felt cheated out of his air time the night before and started blasting his stereo. Trying not to let it get us down we took the kids to the beach to have some much needed fun. We returned around dinner time to some much needed quiet. This only lasted so long. The parade of carts started right on cue after dinner along with the music from next door. Only this time accompanied by all the fire works that were not suppose to be in the park. The music lasted until after 3am. I will say that I have not let this bad experience erase all the good memories I have of the old Jelly stone park, but will not be returning any time soon. I would not recommend this place for a relaxing weekend.

The campground does not enforce it's rules and regulations. Quiet time was supposed to be 12 midnight on Fri and Sat nights. Friday nights party, three lots down from ours started aound midnight and ended at 5AM. None of the adults in our group got any sleep that night. Pets aren't allowed according to the webiste, however, the dogs were very numerous (they were the quiet ones). Golf carts are plenty and run morning, noon and night. Many of them were being driven too fast and by teenagers and in my opinion overloaded (7-8 riders). The high point of our visit occured on Sat. night. There was a dance on the parking lot in front of the store. At some point it must have gotten out of control, because we started hearing police sirens and then saw a parade of golf carts and police cars with lights flashing going down the road behind our site. We never did find out what happened exactly. Some people we heard talking about it said that it was drunk driving with the golf carts, throwing beer bottles, and even someone got stabbed. I can't verify any of that, but we did count the police vehicles, 8 squad cars, 1 police SUV and 1 ambulance. Seems a bit much for just a couple of drunks on their golf carts. We cannot recommend this campground and will not return.

This campground isn't bad, but there were a few things that annoyed us. For one, everyone there rents a golf cart and they roads there are flooded with the carts. You almost get run over. Then when its time to go to sleep, all you hear is golf carts cruising up and down the roads beeping their horns. They have a water slidet there that goes into a pool. The pool is only 3 feet deep but you can't see the bottom because the water is so dirty.
