Trick-or-treating is tradition at Twin Lakes State Park
The famous Haunted Trail starts at 6:00 p.m. and the first run is kid-friendly
When the scaring begins: The scares start at dark as the thrilling outdoor adventure draws near. True to form, the Haunted Trail is not recommended for children under 10 or the faint of heart. Acres of mortifying scenes and unnatural creatures wait eagerly to quench their undying thirst for your screams. What lurks among these trees? What sinister beings have you in their sights?
Haywagon and haunted hike: Meet at the Concession Stand near Goodwin Lake beach to start your chilling episode. You’ll be picked up here on the haywagon and driven to the beginning of the trail to hike with guides carrying lanterns. It's roughly a .5 – .75 mile walk, and takes about 20-30 minutes. At the end of the trail, you’ll hitch a ride back to the concession stand on the haywagon.
Ghost Stories: At 8:00 p.m. each night, gather round for a spook-tacular bonfire at the beach and warm your spirits with our ghost stories.
Cost: $5.00 per person (not per scream) to walk the Haunted Trail, Children 3 and under are free. Pumpkins can be purchased for $3.00 in the Pumpkin Patch. Concessions will be available at 4:00 p.m. each day.
Volunteering: Volunteers help make this event happen and they are recruited to dramatize the trail. Students, Scout Groups, Fraternities, Sororities and others suddenly resemble zombies or vampires. There is a legend that the Lady of the Lake still haunts the trail around Halloween time. You never know who or what you’ll encounter as you DARE to walk along the Haunted Trail for THE most THRILLING outdoor adventure – of your LIFE!
There is no better time to come face to face with your nightmares than this Halloween season at the Haunting on the Lake…
