Event Description:
Join Raccoon State Recreation Area in celebrating its 24th Annual Halloween Camping Weekend on Saturday, October 28th. This year we will again be having our visitor’s favorite, the Raccowl Egg Hunt at 10am behind the campstore across the street from the modern campgrounds. Fun crafts and face painting will start at noon and run until 1:30pm at the Chapel Shelter.

The Costume Contest begins at 3pm next to the camp host site. You can begin lining up around 2:30. This contest has three age categories: five and under, six to eleven and twelve to adult. There are 3 possible prizes for each category. There will also be prizes for the best group costume of 2 or more persons, and the best pet costume. The costume and campsite decoration contests are the only two events that are for campers only.

At 5:00pm all traffic will be stopped inside the campground for Trick-or-Treating. This is open to the public from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Parking is available at the campstore, main ramp, office, and along Berry Drive. After the Trick-or-Treating meet at the Chapel Shelter for the Awards ceremony at 7:15pm where the plaques and wonderful prizes will be awarded to the weekend’s winners!

Hayrides through the campground will begin at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased from the campground gate prior to 7pm. Tickets will then be sold from the Chapel Shelter until 8:30pm. Buying a ticket early does not guarantee a better spot in line.

All activities are free with the exception of hayrides ($2 per person). Donations are accepted to help offset the cost of prizes and decorations
