Easy Halloween Decoration Ideas for Your Campsite

Get ready to take your fall camping up a notch this year with these easy ideas for decorating your campsite and golf cart!

We love camping in the fall, and one of the reasons for that is that many campgrounds have a lot of different activities revolving around Halloween. At any given campground during the months of September and October you are almost guaranteed to find trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, costume contests, site decorating contests, golf cart parades and more.  It’s a great time to enjoy a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of home and enjoy some seasonal festivities.


Plus, it’s a proven fact that campfires actually smell better and s’mores taste a little sweeter during fall months.  Okay, we totally made that up.  But that doesn’t mean it’s not true!

There are so many fun ways you decorate and embellish your campsite and golf cart with Fall and Halloween themes.  Check out the suggestions below before you head out on your next Fall camping trip!
