JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., OCT. 17, 2011 – If you enjoy decorating your campsite, join the annual tradition at Onondaga Cave State Park near Leasburg and be recognized at the campsite decorating contest Oct. 29.

Campers are invited to decorate their campsite and participate in a costume contest for all ages. A trick-or-treat event is traditionally organized by campers in the afternoon. In the evening, campers are invited to sit around a campfire making s'mores and listening to spooky stories. Everyone is invited to bring their own stories, including ones suitable for young children. Winners of the campsite decorating contest will be announced at the storytelling.

Campsites are still available for the weekend of this event, but are expected to go quickly so reservations are recommended.

Onondaga Cave State Park is located seven miles south of the Leasburg exit off of Interstate 44 on Highway H.
