Holiday Island is a city in Carroll County, Arkansas, United States. As of the 2020 census, the population was 2,533.

The qualified electors within the new boundaries of Holiday Island voted to approve incorporation as the Town of Holiday Island on Nov. 3, 2020. The Carroll County Judge ordered the town organized (INCORPORATED TOWN) on Dec. 3, 2020. On March 23rd, 2021, the Secretary of State elevated Holiday Island to a City of the 2nd Class. Newly elected city officials will begin to set up the city government, establish zoning and planning ordinances and work toward establishing voting wards for the next general election in 2022.

A partnership with the Holiday Island Suburban Improvement District [HISID] will exist until the city can support services independently when the tax base grows to a sufficient level. The city will be able to provide services that HISID cannot provide or does not have the resources to provide.

The city will begin to receive its share of Arkansas and County sales taxes, road taxes, property taxes and turnback funds in 2021 based upon population of full-time residents. Those revenues will enable the town to provide an economically sustainable way to better take care of the aging infrastructure in Holiday Island, preserve the lifestyle that the original developers envisioned, and assure proper standards are met for development and growth.

In 1970, the Holiday Island Suburban District was formed. The district was developed by the Holly Corporation in collaboration with McCulloch Oil, creating roads, water and sewer system, fire services and amenities. McCulloch sold the developer rights in 1990 to manager Tom Dees. Amenities are provided and maintained by the Holiday Island Suburban Improvement District [HISID] through the collection of annual assessments.

Holiday Island is a place where retirees, remote workers, and working families live and enjoy the benefits of living in the Ozark Mountains on Table Rock Lake. Amenities include a marina, swimming pools, golf courses, tennis and pickleball courts and hiking/biking trails.
