Trick-or-treating

Join us every Saturday night for this classic tradition. Don’t forget to pack plenty of candy to put out at your site for all the monsters, ghosts, and witches to enjoy. Our campground is walkable everywhere you go and there is no need to avoid traffic or cross busy roads here – making trick-or treating safe and accessible for all campers. Trick-or-treating is guaranteed to be a scary good time at Jellystone Park™!

Friendly Competition

Compete in this year’s costume contests for an opportunity to win fun prizes! From your favorite movie characters to your favorite animal, costume options are endless. Need help finding inspiration? Check out this blog with easy DIY costumes. Contest categories include: Scariest, Funniest, Best Duo/Pair, Best Group Costume, and Best Pet. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! 

Campers can also compete to win camp credit vouchers in our site decorating contests. Pull out your skeletons, spider webs, and cauldrons, and start decorating!

Making Frighteningly Delicious Treats 

Your costume is picked out, your campsite is decorated, but what about dinner? Prepare your bellies for an un-BOO-lievable Halloween weekend with these Halloween themed treats!

1. Witch Chips & Guacamole 

2. Halloween S’mores

3, Easy 4-Ingredient Bat Treats

4. Scary Deviled Egg Eyeballs

Don’t forget about classic seasonal treats like caramel apples, apple cider, and hot cocoa!

Magic Pumpkin Patches

Stop by the camp store when you arrive at Jellystone Park™ to pick up your magic pumpkin seeds, then take your seeds to the magic pumpkin patch (behind the mini golf barn) to plant. Come back on Saturday to see the pumpkin that grew from your magic seeds! Take a look at our events calendar to see when we will have paint available for you to decorate your new pumpkin.

Halloween Activities all Weekend Long! 

Visit us during one of our 4 Halloween Weekends for access to all of our planned activities and exciting events. From scary Halloween movies, to pumpkin painting, there is no reason to only spend 1 day celebrating Halloween when you can celebrate for 3! Fun activities for the whole family includes our Halloween Harvest, movie nights, and Halloween themed crafts.

Cooler Temperatures & Fall Foliage

An added benefit to camping during our Halloween weekends is the changing leaves and cooler temperatures. These weekends are perfect for making autumn family memories with scary stories and tasty s’mores around a cozy campfire. 

Visit Jellystone Park™ Glen Ellis September 24th through October 17th to experience these incredible Halloween Weekends. Sites are filling up fast, so if you are looking for costumes, candy, and fun this Halloween make sure to start planning your trip today!
