13. Creepy dolls
Dolls can be one of the creepiest Halloween camper ideas. They’ve been used so much in horror movies that people have a natural fear associated with them.
You can buy scary Halloween dolls, or just distress new dolls. You can find a lot of old dolls for a low price at second-hand stores. Make sure to distress the dolls to make them look old, dirty, and broken so that they’ll be extra creepy.
The more dolls you set up on or around your camper, the better! If there are trees near your camper, make sure to hang some dolls there too to up the fear factor.
