Fun Halloween Camping Ideas And RV Decorations
Some campgrounds and RV parks have special events planned, but if you are looking for “Halloween camping near me” and can’t find anything … don’t despair!

Plan your own Halloween camping decorations and activities with these 10 simple tips!
1. Spook Up Your Lights
We LOVE our normal inflatable solar lights but were soooooo excited to find the SPOOKY MOON INFLATABLE SOLAR LANTERN and the SPOOKY SPIDER INFLATABLE SOLAR LANTERN!!!

Blow it up like a mini beach ball and power it by the sun with its small solar panel!

It is one of our favorite fun camping Halloween decorations for your campsite and ideas for decorating your RV!

Solar LED String Lights Ghost Halloween Camping Decorations

Swap out your typical camping string lights for a set with a Halloween style like these Ghost String Lights.

They run on solar power and it has an eco-friendly, built in rechargeable battery.

These cute waterproof string lights have a steady, flashing or flickering mode to choose from to make your Halloween campsite fun and festive!



Halloween campsite decorating ideas using Halloween-inspired lights may not be the only type of lighting you need for your Halloween camping activities.

Some tasks may require brighter camping lights during different activities around camp … always remember, safety first!

2. Get Crafty With Pumpkins
The Ultimate Pumpkin Carving Kit With 10 Pop-Out Stencils
Who doesn’t love carving a pumpkin for Halloween? This is one of the most fun Halloween camping ideas because kids and adults can get creative with fun or spooky designs.

One of my totally non-artistic friends carved a pumpkin with a lot of detail in the design and I was amazed at how easy it was when she told me she “cheated” by using a Pumpkin Carving Kit With Pop-Out Stencils! 

The pumpkins are so cute … WOW!!! It is an easy and a fun craft project for your Halloween camping trip!


A quick caution about carving pumpkins at the campsite … carving tools are sharp and pumpkins can be awkward to handle so take extra precautions … especially when small kids are carving your jack-o’-lantern during your Halloween camping trip!

Practice good camping safety tips to make sure everyone has a fun-filled camping adventure!

3. Spice Up Your Linens
Using cute pumpkin themed or witch themed Halloween kitchen towels are fun and super easy Halloween camping decorating ideas that do triple duty!

First, it is cute and brings in the holiday theme to your Halloween camping experience.

Second, it is a functional decoration that you will actually use.

Third, it may even get you a little extra help in the camp kitchen with all of those fun Halloween camping food ideas you are bringing to life!

Halloween camping usually means colder weather camping conditions … making warm comfort food a MUST when it comes to meals!

We have so many camping food ideas that will keep you cooking by the campfire for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert!
4. Make Big Scary Statements
Witch’s Brew Door Cover
RVers have the unique ability to add Halloween decorations to RV doors by wrapping them in a Halloween themed cover like this Witch’s Brew Door Cover.

It creates a big festive splash but is still easy and quick to do; it’s also lightweight and requires minimal space during transportation to and from your campsite.

It’s almost as “difficult” to use as pushing a button to roll out an electric RV awning! LOL 🤣



Depending on your location, your Halloween camping trip may be a bit chilly.

Make sure you have plenty of firewood and camping fire starters to keep you warm during your trip.

You’ll also want to get a few tips for fall camping which include special safety tips for the autumn season.
5. Pick At Your Food And Decorate Your Drinks
Play with your food! Using Halloween picks for cupcake and cake toppers as well as food picks for meat and cheese trays are super fast and fun ways to decorate for a Halloween camping bash! 

Straws are another fun way to add to your Halloween decoration theme at the campsite. You can find paper or plastic straws with Halloween colors.

It is a warm and toasty drink to enjoy around the campfire during the day or night!

Outdoor movies at the campsite are fun and easy to set up!

Use a mini projector on a portable outdoor screen.
