There Is No Place Like Your Home Away From Home This Halloweekend!

This year, we are taking a trip down the yellow brick road off to see the beach! So, pack your bags, load up the camper, and get to Ocean Lakes Family Campground for a Halloweekend to remember! The theme this year is The Wizard of OL!

Halloween At Ocean Lakes
Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year at Ocean Lakes. Everyone in the campground decorates and joins in all the weekend festivities. For many families near and far, Halloweekends have become an annual family tradition! Bring your candy bag and a pumpkin – It is a treat for everyone!

Schedule of Events:
Friday’s event includes Karaoke from 7 PM to 9 PM at Sandy’s Meet n Eat Center Stage! Saturday’s events include Pumpkin Carving/Painting/Decorating Contest at 9 AM and 12 PM, Family Fun Festival from 9 AM to 11 AM, Pet Costume Contest at 12 PM, Family Costume Contest at 1 PM, Trick or Treating from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM, Creepy Site Crawl at 6:30 PM, and the Monster Mash Ball at 7 PM.

Trick or Treating!
When | 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM Saturday (Oct. 13, Oct. 20, Oct. 27)
Where | Throughout the Campground 

How Much Candy Should I Bring?
Simply put, you can never have enough. Halloweekends bring out lots of witches, lions, scarecrows, and other characters for trick or treating each Saturday. Feel free to spend as much as you feel comfortable with on candy.

Handing Out Candy? 
Stop by the Recreation Office before 2 PM Saturday to sign up. You will get a distinctive Halloween sign to put at your site.

Going Trick or Treating? 
The annual tradition starts at 4:30 PM each Saturday. Swing by the Recreation Office at 4 PM that day to pick up the list of treat-friendly sites.

Take home a souvenir that will last longer than your Halloween candy. All items are available in the Recreation Center.

Do not leave without your official The Wizard of OL Halloweekends 2018 T-Shirt. They will feature The Wizard of OL on the front and The Wizard of OL characters on the back with the saying, “There’s No Place Like… Your Home Away From Home!” Adult sizes are $16, $17 for XXL and XXXL, and kids’ sizes are $14.

The cups this year will change colors and will feature a camper on top of the witch’s feet! Cups are $2 each. 

Forget your bag for trick or treating? Pick up one for FREE at the Recreation Office!

Remember Family-Friendly
Our guests go all out with their Halloween decorations and costumes – We love that – Just remember that Halloweekends are focused on families. Be creative, keep it clean. Be scary, but not so much that you would make a little one cry.

Safety and Security Policies
Masks and face coverings are only permitted to be worn in Ocean Lakes for the 3 Halloweekends (on Fridays and Saturdays). They cannot be worn in our businesses (Sandy Mart, RV Center, Golf Cars, Main Office, Ocean Lakes Properties, Sandy Harbor) except during Trick or Treating on Saturdays from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM. They are generally permitted in the Recreation Center, as it is the hub of our Halloweekend events and costume contests.

Operating a vehicle or golf car with a mask or face covering is NOT permitted as it is a safety issue and also hinders Security in identifying underage drivers. Security Teammates will use discretion on a case by case basis as needed throughout Halloweekends regarding masks, coverings, costumes and decorations.

South Gate
Our South Gate will be open to help all the Halloween revelers get in as quick as possible to start having fun! The South Gate will be open 7 AM to 11 PM each Friday and Saturday and 7 AM to 3 PM on Sundays through October.

No Outside Characters Allowed
Our Halloweekend activities are only for guests staying at Ocean Lakes and our annual lease site holders.

We hope all guests have fun during their Halloweekend stay, and always remember there is no place like your home away from home!
