Spookapalooza Spooktacular Campsite Contest 2022

Campers in DeSoto State Park have been decorating their campsites with Halloween decorations for years……this year, there will be a campsite decorating contest! Decorate your site with the most original and creative Halloween décor you can find … you might win a prize! The best decorated sites will win great prizes like free camping and more-there will be a 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winner, as well as Most Creative to boost that competitive spark!

Winners will be announced on Sunday, October 30th via DeSoto’s Facebook/Instagram(#desotostatepark) Winners will be contacted via email or phone

Regulations: We ask that decor remains on the individual sites and does not bleed over into others sites, roadways, trails, etc. Décor must be completely removed from site at camper checkout-PLEASE no glitter/confetti, paint, toilet paper or other materials that cause damage to the park. Please help us observe Leave No Trace in the park where we can, especially with picking up litter.

Date: Halloween Weekend 2022

Where: DeSoto State Park in Fort Payne, Alabama. Improved Campground
