Events at Ash Grove
Ash Ghoul, the Haunted Campground
This year Halloween falls on Saturday, and we had hoped that, we would be able to host this traditional Ash Grove celebration. At this point...it is anyone's guess. We will let you know closer to the time. If we do, this is what is will look like:
At Ash Grove, we will be celebrating the holiday with cabin & campsite decorating contests. Hopefully, we will also be able to have our traditional costume contest, our (not too scary) haunted trail, bonfire, storytelling, treats and more.
Practice you best ghoulish laugh and we will find a way to make this year's holiday fun!
Because all of our activities are out-of-doors, this celebration is weather dependent. Do your spooky witch's dance and cast your spells for clear skies and a bright moon!!
Below, you will see some of the events that were held last year. Because of the pandemic, many of these events have been cancelled for 2020, or changed in fundamental ways.
