Join us for a spooky good time as we celebrate Halloween in the Campground October 26 & 27, 2018 in Watoga’s Riverside Campground. This is your chance to decorate your campsite and become the winner of our Halloween in the Campground Decorating Contest. Even more, everyone can take part in the trick-or-treat! Even those not staying in the campground are encouraged to participate in all activities including the trick or trunk or treat! Therefore, mMake sure you stop by campsite 15 on Saturday and see local residents Dustin and Devan Simmons, as they demonstrate how to make apple butter. You will also have a chance to help if you choose. There will also be samples for you to take home while they last.
