Southlake’s Spookiest Family Campout a Huge Success

Ghosts, goblins and good times were found lurking around families at the 3rd Annual Haunted Family Campout in Bob Jones Park!

Everyone had a howling good time as families gathered for the annual Haunted Family Campout on Saturday and Sunday, October 7-8. Guests spent the night in tents at Bob Jones Park and experienced a night of camping in Southlake, Halloween style. Campers also enjoyed spooky story time with Mr. DeCee, lots of family friendly Halloween activities among decorated campsites.

“This is a very good family campout experience. Thanks for all your organizing and effort. Look forward to the next campout,” said one camper. And another said, “The whole family liked it very much, we all enjoyed it. We will definitely be back next spring. Thanks for all the staff’s help!” Don’t worry families, staff is already looking forward to planning the 4th Annual Haunted Family Campout!
