Join us for day full of fun activities; crafts, pumpkin carving contest, cabin & campground decorating contest, creepy crawly critter corner programs, and a haunted drive. Due to COVID and CDC suggested guidelines, guests will see some changes to the festivities. Morning crafts will be take and go; where all supplies per craft will be assembled into a kit that guests can take back to their cabin or campsite to assemble.

The Pumpkin Carving Contest will have a few adjustments to allow for social distancing and the Cabin & Campsite Decorating Contest will take place with judging on Saturday between 5 and 6 pm. Replacing the 2020 Pumpkin Roll Obstacle Course and Pet Costume Parade are Creepy Crawly Critter Corner Programs.

Haunted Hayrack Rides will change to a Haunted Drive; where guests will drive their personal vehicles along the haunted route. Fees are $25 per vehicle. This equals the cost of two adults and one child on a hayrack in previous years. You can have more people in your vehicle at no additional cost but we do require that everyone be buckled. NO buses, people in the back of a pickup, motorcycles, personal ATV/UTVs, or personal hayracks will be allowed. Guests interested in the Haunted Drive will need to preregister on Monday, October 5th starting at 8am. There is a limit on the number of vehicles allowed through and timeslots will be assigned. Call Ponca State Park directly on Monday, October 5th at 402-755-2284 starting at 8:00 AM to reserve your spot during the Haunted Drive.

Park entry permit required.
