I remember as a kid the excitement of dressing up, grabbing my treat back and hitting the neighbourhood with a sugar crazed look (okay, not that bad)! I loved this fall event with all the pumpkin carving, costume fitting and candy eating.
As you know, you can’t just loose your kids or grandkids on the neighbour hood anymore. It’s not as safe as it used to be! So, what could be more fun than visiting a RV resort for the weekend that offers Halloween activities? It’s safe and usually the activities are all planned for you!
Here is a list of great places to visit during the Halloween season if you RV or camp. All of these places are family friendly and have sites for your motorhome or travel trailer.
Jellystone Parks (aka Yogi Bear)
Jellystone Parks are located throughout the United States. However, because most of my readers are Florida residents, I will highlight the RV friendly campsite in Madison, Florida.
Begin your scary Halloween festivities with a haunted trail and haunted house. Bring your favorite costume, because they are going to have a content on the best one. Throughout the day, you’ll there will also be scheduled activities.
