Ideas for a fun halloween camping trip

/ Post by Jasmine Nguyen

Most people dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating on October 31. Perhaps you've done that enough times, or perhaps this year you simply want to try something different. Camping for Halloween is a fantastic option that the whole family will enjoy.

Are you prepared to bring spooky costumes, thick blankets, and marshmallows? This will be an amazing holiday to remember if there are some plans for keeping everyone amused and enough food and drink for everyone.

One of the best reasons to go camping on Halloween is that it tends to be less crowded at campsites in the fall. Additionally, it's a simple way to enjoy the last of the warm weather before winter sets in. Camping, however, is a wonderful way to give yourself a glorious holiday and spend time with friends and family at the same time provided you get into the spooky Halloween vibe.


Bring necessary supplies with you

Halloween camping is a little different than summer camping. This is due to the fact that the weather is typically not very warm, so you'll need to be ready for that. However, in some areas, the risk of fire is particularly significant when the leaves start drying out and falling off the trees.

However, blankets and warm, comfy clothing are a terrific way to take advantage of the cozy atmosphere while traveling in a campervan. Of course, don't forget to have a lot of hot food and beverages.


Choose a Theme

Consider picking a theme if you truly want to make your Halloween camping trip frightening. Perhaps you stage a Blair Witch Project reenactment while listening to spooky music and suspending the recognizable sticks from the trees.

Think about making your campervan appear like a haunted house. When the light is on inside the campervan, objects fastened to the outside will create eerie silhouettes. Put up paper bats, ghosts, or fake spiderwebs inside and outside the campervan.

Another entertaining concept is a zombie apocalypse; have everyone dress up and play games in the woods to frighten them all. Another suggestion is to go on frightening night hikes and tell scary tales while toasting marshmallows over a campfire.

Even if kids have to cover up later when it gets cold, everyone should participate by donning a costume, regardless of the subject. Because makeup is unaffected by the weather, everyone can go all out.


Remember to bring food

The best course of action is to make Halloween-themed snacks in advance and keep them chilled in the fridge of the campervan.

Hot dogs can be made and served with Halloween-themed fruit and vegetable snacks if you have a portable grill. Or create cookies and cupcakes with blood, fangs, and eyeballs. Don't forget the hot beverages. Serve hot chocolate or soup.

While ensuring that no one gets hungry is crucial, it is also advisable to maintain the Halloween camping motif.




It's crucial to carefully arrange the activities for the Halloween camping trip. Make your own camping sculptures by bringing some pumpkins, tools, and materials. Alternately, you might bring glow sticks and play a frightening game of capture the flag at night. Bring Halloween costumes so the kids may enjoy dressing up. If you can, toast marshmallows and tell spooky stories around the campfire or a light.
