Summer may be over, but the good times keep coming throughout the fall at Jellystone Park™. It’s nearly October, which may be one of our favorite months of the year here at the park! Cooler weather, quieter campgrounds, and Halloween decorations become common during this time of the year. From September 29-October 29, we will be having 5 Halloween themed weekends that are sure to be a real treat. You may be asking yourself, “what could possibly make October such a fun time to plan a camping trip?” We are here to tell you why!

Magical Pumpkin Patches

Grab some magical pumpkin seeds to plant in our pumpkin patch on Saturday and wake up on Sunday to a full grown pumpkin! Then, take your magical pumpkin and head on over to Hill Country Hall to paint and decorate your pumpkin anyway you’d like!

Costume Contests

Break out your favorite costume for our costume contest and see if you can win your age group! Are you going for cute or spooky? It’s up to you to decide!


Make your way around the park and gather up oodles of delicious candy and treats. Don’t forget to wear your costumes and yell “Trick-or-Treat!”
