October has become one of the busiest camping months of the year as RVers by the tens of thousands flock to their favorite campgrounds every weekend during the month to celebrate Halloween by decorating their rigs, dressing up in costumes, and turning trick-or-treating into weekend-long festivals.
It’s like that all across North America but one of the busiest is always the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington, Ky. The place sells out every weekend in October and to get a spot, many campers had to book their sites a year in advance.
This weekend, close to 1,500 people will be here and the festivities and activities run all day long.
Jennifer and I visited it on a Wednesday and Thursday and found the place half full already by early birds – Halloween campers who have so much fun stay for weeks at a time.
At night, their motorhomes, fifth wheels, truck campers and travel trailers are strung with lights and spooky decorations.
There are paper mache spiders, witches, werewolves, skeletons, headless horsemen and elaborately carved pumpkins. Cobwebs are strung between trees, tombstones sprout from the ground, ghostly sheets wave in the breeze. The park provides inflatables that can be borrowed as well. There are costume parades and contests, wagon rides, music, barbecue and campfire socializing.
