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 can remember all of the 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. 8-Pack Solar Torch Lights With Flickering Flame

Not only will these make excellent Halloween decorations for your campsite, you could use them as pathway lights for your home year round. The LED flickering flame is so cool! And they’re waterproof too. 

The torch lights have a solar panel that takes in the sunlight during the daytime and turns it into electricity. And at dusk they turn on automatically. So you won’t have to deal with running extension cords or having to buy huge packs of AA or AAA batteries.

The solar panel and the lampshade are made with a high level waterproof IP65 material that can withstand  rain and even snow and keep the torch working just fine.

I think these solar torch lights are awesome and I’m not the only one. There’s a ton of customer reviews on Amazon and most of them are more than pleased with them. 

Head on over to Amazon and check them out!


2. Battery Operated LED String Lights

These string lights will really look cool hung around the camper awning or in the trees nearby. You can really put them anywhere because each string runs on 3 AA batteries (not included). I just think they would really add a spooky atmosphere around the campsite; all glowing in the dark woods.

The LED lights themselves are waterproof but the battery packs will need to be protected from the rain. Each string measures 8.2 ft in length and has 20 mini bulbs that can either flash or stay on.

And each string of lights is different: Orange Jack O’Lanterns, Purple Bats, and White Ghosts. I personally like the Purple Bats the best.

You can check them out Here for more information and customer reviews.


3. Welcome To Our Campsite Banner

This could be a nice addition to your decorations around the campsite. The sign is made of 250g cardstock which makes it durable and reusable. Each card size is 18 x 22 cm / 7 x 8.6 inch.

It comes pre-strung too so you don’t have to assemble it or anything. You just have to find a good spot and hang it on up. 

Put it somewhere as a camping photo prop or just a nice warm welcome for friends and family.

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.

The shirt is lightweight, classic fit with double-needle sleeve and bottom hem. Available for both men and women.

You can find it Here.


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.

The lantern stands 11″ (13.5″ hanging) and it is sturdy but lightweight with a metal frame and glass globe. I’ll bet it will make a great theater prop or costume accessory as well.

You can find more info Here.


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. You can light up walkways or wrap them around tree trunks.

They’re perfectly safe for pets and kids and they’re cool to the touch. The solid tube light is weatherproof and will still work in rainy or snowy conditions. 

I like them because they’re flexible and easy to work with. You can easily bend them into any shape.

You can find them Here.


7. Extra Large 8ct Halloween Yard Signs

I know these are labeled “yard signs” but I just thought they would look great around the camper or tents also and not just in your front yard. 

Anyway, as you can see in the picture above the signs use vibrant colors and are kid friendly. And they are easy to display. You just have to insert two stakes into the sign and press it into the ground.

Each sign is made of corrugated plastic cardboard sheets and they are waterproof.

You can find out more details about these neat signs Here.


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.

You could even put a solar spotlight on it and make a grave yard scene around it.

9. Halloween Vintage Camper Doormat

Add this awesome multi color doormat to your camper. It can be used as an indoor or outdoor mat and measure’s 18″ x 27″. The mat is rubber backed to keep it from sliding so you can put it on just about any surface. 

This mat is made by Caroline’s Treasures who still make everything by hand and one at a time and are located in Mobile, Al. 

Click Here to find out more. They have a bunch of other mats with different designs a sizes.



10. Halloween Ghost String Lights

Just like the string lights earlier in this post, these lights are battery powered and water proof as well. Except these bad boys come with a remote control! (with a range of about 5 feet) And they also have 8 different lighting modes: Flashing, twinkle, waves, sequential, slow glow, chasing, slow fade and steady on.

The string is 14.7 ft and it has 40 ghost lights on it.

You can find them Here on Amazon.
