Halloween Decoration Ideas for Your Campsite and Golf Cart
Get ready to take your fall camping up a notch this year with these easy ideas for decorating your campsite and golf cart!
We love camping in the fall, and one of the reasons for that is that many campgrounds have a lot of different activities revolving around Halloween. At any given campground during the months of September and October you are almost guaranteed to find trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, costume contests, site decorating contests, golf cart parades and more. It’s a great time to enjoy a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of home and enjoy some seasonal festivities.
Plus, it’s a proven fact that campfires actually smell better and s’mores taste a little sweeter during fall months. Okay, we totally made that up. But that doesn’t mean it’s not true!
There are so many fun ways you decorate and embellish your campsite and golf cart with Fall and Halloween themes. Check out the suggestions below before you head out on your next Fall camping trip!
Campsite Halloween Decoration Ideas
Mums, Hay bales and Pumpkins – Okay, so these might not be specific to Halloween, but decorating your campsite with pumpkins, mums and/or hay bales sure is a simple and pretty way to show some Fall spirit. This is our campsite from last year in Disney’s Fort Wilderness!
Giant Eyeballs in Trees – Use large inflatable beach balls and color them to look like eyeballs. Secure them in a tree with bungee cords or rope to look like a pair of eyes! This example is from The DingaLinges.
Skeleton in Cooler – Talk about “one last drink!” This example if from Happy Camper Studio.
Skeletons Playing Poker – Set up this fun scene at your picnic table! Example from Ontario Parks Blog.
Fishing Skeleton – This skeleton would look great at your campsite. Even better if you have a site next to the lake! Example from Ontario Parks Blog.
Witch Legs Under Camper or Tent – How awesome would these iconic witch’s legs look sticking out from under your camper, tent, or even a tree on the campsite?

Golf Cart Halloween Decoration Ideas
To put it simply: there are pages upon pages of ideas for Halloween Golf Cart decorations on the web, especially on Pinterest. I’ll share some of the ones I found, but these are really just the tip of the iceberg. Golf cart decorating is a frequent event at many campgrounds and not just at Halloween. Many campgrounds have golf cart parades and even decorating contests throughout the season!
Tiki Bar Paddleboard Golf Cart – This fun car is on I Love Shelling. That site has a bunch of other golf cart decorating ideas as well.
Santa Sleigh Golf Cart – Always fun to go with a Christmas theme for golf cart decorating! This example is from Retirement Rocks.
Donut Golf Cart – Grab some donut pool floats and have fun designing a cart like this one! Thanks to Mouse Steps for this picture. If you’re looking for Disney themed golf cart decorations, take a look at their blog post for lots of ideas.
RV Golf Cart – WOW! Pretty incredible detail on this one. Example was posted on Imgur.
Pirate Ship Golf Cart – Turn your cart into a pirate ship like this example uploaded to Flickr.
Those are some are our very favorite ideas when it comes to decorating your campsite and/or golf cart for Halloween. Many of these ideas are pretty involved and would likely require some prep at home before you head off to your campground. The cool thing about decorating for Halloween is that the intensity level is completely up to you. Maybe you don’t really have the time or desire to come up with an intricate costume or decorating scheme. That’s totally fine! Slap a couple of pre-fab decorations or cobwebs onto your camper or cart and you’re good to go.
Or if Halloween and/or DIY is your thing and you enjoy detailed decorating, the sky is the limit.
When booking your fall camping trip(s) check the campground calendar (or give the office a call) and ask about any Halloween decorating events that might be occurring during your stay.
Enjoy your Halloween camping! We would love to see what kind of decorations you come up with. Tag us #GlamperLife on Instagram!!
