Halloween Campsite Decorating Ideas

Two things that I love are Halloween and camping. Mix them both together and you’re in for a spooktacular night! Some of my funnest memories as a kid are camping with friends and family around Halloween time. Growing up, my Grandparents owned some land out in the woods and Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground was right across the street. We would walk over there and go tric-or-treating and I remember some campers had some awesome campsite decorating ideas.

And just recently my wife and I camped at The Bogalusa Blues Fest and of course she decorated the camper accordingly. See picture above of Skully on banjo and Rufus on harmonica. They’re a hit every year at The Blues Fest. But anyway, with Halloween right around the corner and (finger’s crossed) some cooler weather rolling in, I’m sure some of you will be doing some camping soon. So what better time than now to share some cool ideas for decorating your campsite.

Here are 10 ways to turn your campsite into a Halloween adventure for all ages. And you can find all of these decorations on Amazon.com.

Now let’s get to it!

1. Halloween Pumpkin Lights

Add these battery-powererd jack o lantern lights around your camper awning or in the trees near your campsite. No electricity hook-up? No problem. All you need is 3 AA batteries (not included). Lights are LED and will not get hot over extended use.

2. Large Hairy 6ft Spider

Any arachnafobic campers around? You should be able to scare them good with this thing. Set the spider out in the woods somewhere and don’t tell anyone. Then take them on a late night walk through the woods and watch for them to freak out when they walk up on this huge spider!

3. Hanging Lighted Witch Hats 8pcs

Light up the night with these glowing witch hats. There are 4 colors total (3 orange, 3 purple, 1 green and 1 black). Perfect for the campsite or home Halloween decorations. There are 8 different light modes controlled by 1 button. These are highly recommended according to customer reviews on Amazon.

4. Witches With Hitches Halloween T-Shirt

I know, it’s not technically a decoration. But just think of all the candy you will get tric-or-treating in this awesome shirt! Comes in 3 colors: Black, Asphalt, and Dark Heather.

5. Rustic Old Fashioned Light Up Lantern

Give your campsite a vintage feel with this old rugged looking lantern. I don’t think it will serve well as just a light source, but for decorating it will be perfect. It runs on AA batteries and has a Led light bulb in it.

6. LED Rope Light

Place these around the perimeter of the campsite for a great look at night and also as a precaution for people to watch there step. Connect up to three strands together to create a 100 ft. rope light. Light up walkways. Wrap around tree trunks. They’re perfectly safe for pets and kids and they’re cool to the touch.


Place these awesome signs around the campsite and really make a statement. After all, you should warn everyone else of the zombies and ghouls running around your camp before it’s too late!!

8. Zombie Face and Arms Lawn Stakes

Make it a ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ camp out with this zombie head and arms coming out of the ground. Head and arms are attached to plastic yard stakes that are put in the ground.

9. Halloween Vintage Camper Doormat

Awesome multi color doormat for your camper. Measurements are 18″ x 27″. You can find more info by clicking on the doormat photo above.

10. Banjo Pickin’ Skeleton

And lastly, you can’t go wrong with this guy. My wife and I have one and we named him Skully. And he can get down on that banjo. You just sit him up on a table or chair, hit the button and his eyes will light up as he plays his banjo. Uses 3 AA batteries (not included) and it’s motion activated.

Check out the links in the pictures above for more info. Thank you.

And there ya have it folks. Fall is in the air and it’s time to head out to your favorite campground with friends and family and scare some people!! No, just kidding. It’s all about having a good time in the good old outdoors.
