Camping del Terrore is one of the numerous sub-categorized "backwoods slashers" that occurred during the eighties made famous by Friday the 13th franchise and The Burning, along with such others as The Final Terror, The Prey, Just Before Dawn, Don't Go in the Woods, Mother's Day and Madman.
The film begins as two students named Rosie and Tom excuse themselves from a Basketball game and head to a campground where it reveals that the campground was builted on a haunted Indian burial ground, adopted by an ancient Indian shaman to watch over the groundside. After Tom and Rosie finish having sex, Rosie heads out and goes to an abandoned police car, only to see that the Shaman is watching her through the bushes and to Rosie's shock, she goes inside the police car and only to see that the Shaman uses a Chef knife to pierce through the seat, in which Rosie escapes out of the car and in the progress, gets stabbed in the hand with the chef knife.
As Tom searches around for Rosie, Rosie hides inside a log, where the Shaman uses a Boning knife and stabs her through the log, killing her. Tom heads to the log and looks inside, only to see the Shaman in Rosie's clothing and stabs Tom in the neck with the chef knife. Soon, a kid looks behind the log and witness the deaths of Rosie and Tom.
