The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District has a weekend planned from not so spooky to as spooky as you’d like!

Enjoying the Outdoors is brought to you in partnership with Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District

Halloween Campout 

There are special events for each age group planned this weekend! For families with littles, this experience is based more on fall and non-scary events.  There are aspects which can ramp up the spookiness for those who enjoy the thrill.

 Pack up your gear and get ready for memory making!  From free smores kits, to stories and music around a campfire, all things Autumn are set to appear on this thrilling weekend.  Experience a wild experience of a Hayride …. on the lake!!  The family can enjoy a pontoon boat ride filled with hay and fall sights!  Wagon hayrides will also be available on land too.  There will be planned crafts, live owls from the Naturalist, and of course Trick or Treating!  One of the most exciting parts is the Halloween themed Firework show set to music!  If you’re just going to watch Fireworks over the lake with themed music there is a gate entry $15 per car which gets you an all-day pass.

The family has access to enjoy the outdoor lighted deck area with Adirondack chairs, picnic tables, a gas fire ring, free Wi-Fi, and phone charging stations. The Camp store will be open for snacks, drinks, souvenirs, and camping supplies.  Don’t forget to pack some Halloween or Fall Decorations as you can decorate your camp site!
