About Eric Holmlund
We have 6 children, live in Colorado and enjoy vacationing at our 'Fish Camp' in Lake Providence, Louisiana.
Eric Holmlund purchased this House in 2014
Why Eric Holmlund chose Lake Providence
We had always wanted to have a lake house. Along with our kids, we love water activities, fishing, kayaking, boating, etc. In 2013 we discovered Lake Providence, and fell in love the the town and its people. With a rich cultural heritage, and southern charm, it's a great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life.
What makes this House unique
This property was perfect for us because it fits our whole family, has a great dock, and is close to our favorite local cuisine at places like The Dock and My Dream Eatery. We love relaxing in the screened in porch, a great place to do some reading or writing. We also enjoy playing board games as a family, and there is an assortment of them at the house. There is a swing-set in the back yard to keep young children entertained. We also enjoy cycling and running. Although the terrain is flat, the roads are good and the scenery is pretty. Interestingly, it is precisely a half-marathon (13.1 miles) to run around the lake.

I was unable to be there but the wife said it was great and will rent it again
We absolutely enjoyed our stay! Everything was there we didn't need to run anywhere to get anything. We purchased our food before we got there. The kids loved being outside and enjoyed the bunk beds. Absolutely a beautiful home/fish camp. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much for letting us use your camp we LOVED IT!!!!
What a great spot!!!
We had an amazing weekend! House is spacious and clean! Kids had a blast fishing and Kayaking all day! The house is equipped with everything you need! We will definitely go back!

Thank you Eric for opening up your home to us......We will be back for the fishing at our home away from home!!!
We had an excellent time. The kids enjoyed fishing and all the toys at the house. There was plenty of room. The layout of the house was very nice. We hope to be back! Thank you to Eric for opening your home to us. Lake Providence was a cute little town.
Great Lake Getaway!
The camp itself was as we expected. Very spacious and accommodating. The dock needs some major work but otherwise a great rental.
Eugene Haley Sports Complex (Baseball fields just down the street, easy walk)
Byerley House Visitor Center (1.9 miles, around the corner of lake)
Louisiana Cotton Museum (4 miles, on other side of lake)
Panola Pepper Company (Offers tours. 10.4 miles)
Poverty Point (A UNESCO World Heritage Site. 24 miles)
Vicksburg National Military Park (55 miles)
The house is located across from Byerley Airport. If you have your own plane, that could be convenient. Otherwise, it's not a busy airport. You'll just see a couple of crop dusters taking off and landing during the day in crop-dusting season.
Lake Providence is an excellent warm water fishery containing a variety of species including Largemouth Bass, White Perch, Buffalo, Bream (such as Bluegill and other sunfish), and multiple species of Catfish and Gar.
Other wildlife is also abundant, with turtles frequenting the area around the dock, birds swooping down to catch fish, and the occasional snake. While a few alligators have been known to live in the lake, we've never seen them and they do not pose any threat.
You can fish directly from our dock. Children can catch a variety of species using worms. Night fishing is also excellent, with catfish swarming the shallows at night. The avid bass fisherman can take out our kayak and explore the shorelines, or bring your own boat.
We have a selection of fishing poles and other fishing gear available at the house for your use. Additionally there is a bait and tackle shop (Ingleside) nearby.
We provide a kayak, stand-up paddle board (SUP), windsurf rig, and plenty of life jackets for our guests to use (all included in the house rental price).
If you would like to bring a power boat, there is a public boat launch just 100 yards away so you can easily launch your boat and tie it up at our dock during your stay.
