We’re going to HarborTown this year for Halloween and I’m already starting to plan how to decorate our camper and campsite. Everyone at the park really gets into decorating and it’s usually one of the busiest weekends. Most parks shut down the roads so there’s no cars, and the kids can safely Trick or Treat. I have the typical spiders, bats, headstones, etc. but wanted to bring it up a notch this year.
Here’s some inspiration so far:
Huge Spider Webs:
I have 1 large spider and love this look.
Adding additional spider, twigs and leaves would make it look more authentic.
Eyes in Bushes & Trees:
I found these two ideas for the bushes and trees. Using both looks together will be impressive. The eyes will fill in the space during the day and at night the toilet paper roll will glow.
Daytime eye idea from Better Homes & Garden
Nighttime eye idea from ThriftyCraftyGirl
We have two doors on our campers, and I’d love to do this to one of them

For our other door and windows, I want to do this and I’ll have to make these.
Have any other ideas for decorating for Halloween? Would love to share!
I love some of the older vintage campers and how people have renovated them over the years. I can’t imagine how much time it would take to overhaul a camper, so I’m quite impressed by what they have done.
Here’s a few of my favorites, first Pretty in Pink. I love all the colors and it’s just so pretty.
Seeing Spots: I think this is cute, but might give you a headache after awhile.
Hello Kitty: My daughter would die for this one!
Lady Bug: This reminds me of my great-grandma.
Have you done anything cute to customize your home or or home on wheels?
My 4 year old is now riding a two wheeler. She’s been wanting dad to take off the training wheels for some time now, and today was the day. So proud of my baby!
It’s was a Saturday night, and a beautiful Michigan evening. It was hot earlier and the temperature cooled down comfortably.
Now you know I don’t do anything ordinary, even when it comes to S’mores. The kids were patiently waiting for our fire to die down to the perfect marshmallow cooking temperature. ( I love her smirk here, she’s such a character!) We like to experiment with different combinations. Here’s our latest list of things to pick from:
- Hershey’s Bars
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Kit Kat Bars
- Graham Crackers
- Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies
- Shortbread Cookies
The first one is Shortbread cookies with Reese’s Cups.
The second is Fudge Strip cookies with Hershey’s.
What combinations have you tried that we’re either a hit or a bust?
I want to know more about you, so every Friday I’m going to share 5 things about me and hope you share back with me.
1. What is your favorite campground/RV park?
I think everyone knows by now that Harbor Town RV Park is our favorite. It’s clean, the staff is great, awesome amenities and it’s cl
2. What is your favorite theme weekend at the parks?
Halloween for sure! I love how everyone decorates their sites and their campers. I’ve seen so many different ideas and it’s amazing what you can do. We don’t think of it as just decorating your camper, because you can decorate just like it’s your home. It’s so fun, and the kids have a blast too. My kids love to hand out candy to others the most.
3. What is your favorite type of camping spot? (Pull-Thru, Full Hook-UP, Rustic, Front of Park)?
Pull-Thru, Full Hook-Up is ours. It makes setting up easier. When you get a paved pad that’s just bonus. I also like some type of paved road (either concrete or black top) It makes it easier for the kids to ride their bikes and helps to keep the dirt down from being tracked into the camper.
4. Do you pick your park based on attractions close by or the park?
There’s really not much around our favorite park. Toledo is about 30 minutes away and we’ve taken a trip down to the zoo and shopping. We haven’t been to a park because of the close by attractions. We are going this August to Duck Creek in Muskegon. It’s right outside of Michigan Adventures and we plan to visit that park.
5. Golf Cart?
We rented a golf cart once, and the kids loved it. We will rent again.
Your turn to share!
1. What camper do you have?
We have a Outback Bunk House we bought new a few years ago. We love it! It’s perfect for my family.
2. Do you camp full time or for enjoyment?
We camp for enjoyment and try to camp as much as we can. We usually take 2-3 weekend trips a month, and 1-2 long weekend/holiday trips.
3. What have you done to customize your camper?
I haven’t yet, but would love to change the curtains. I hate them! Everything is so matchy-matchy to the other fabrics (couch, bedding, etc). I would love to start with our bedroom and see how that goes. I think the curtains will have to be custom and I don’t know how to sew.
4. Where are you from?
I grew up in Michigan, about an hour outside of Detroit. It’s very pretty here and up north is beautiful, esp in the Fall with all the leaves changing on the trees.
5. Do you have and/or how many kids?
We have two kids, one of each. My son is the oldest and he’s almost 7, my daughter just turned 4. My son is very sweet and really cares about everything and everyone. My daughter is an April baby, so she’s got her own mind and loves to share it. It’s quite funny on some days!
