The History of 100 Years
Holloway's Marina and RV Park
It started with a nurseryman from Corona. Charles Holloway loved to fish, so in 1914, he hauled boat parts up the old Clark Grade to assemble them in Big Bear Lake, and he was approached by someone wanting to rent it before he even got it in the water. Charles knew he was onto something. He built a camp with 16 cabins, 30 rental boats, a general store and a barbershop.
In 1971, two couples — Marge and Don Hafen and Betty (Marge’s sister) and Bruce Turner — bought the property from the Moores, ending a 57-year era. The Hafen/Turner family expanded the business a few years later with the purchase of three additional acres of land.
Holloway's Marina has been one of the leading businesses of the community in Big Bear Lake since 1914 and still serves the community and guest from around the world.
