You are certain to have a fang-tastic time during our final Harvest Festival weekend. On Friday night, participants can head to our pavilion for a Monster Mash dance. Don't forget to wear a costume! On Saturday there will be face painting (fee involved), a wagon hayride, games, crafts, a campsite decorating contest, and a children's costume contest, and to round out the evening there will be trick-or-treating and our infamous haunted hike. On Sunday morning, the winners of the site decorating contest and children's costume contest are announced at our campground host site during coffee. Detailed schedules will be available closer to the event date. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook @VanRiperSP to stay up to date on park happenings.
