Adult Thrills (Actual Haunted Campsites That Will Scare Your Socks Off!) :

1. Harold Parker State Forest: Massachusetts

  • The Haunted Tale: As you may already be familiar with, during the 1600s in Salem, Massachusetts, people who were accused of practicing witchcraft were persecuted for supposedly bending the laws of nature. This forest is adjacent to the town of Salem and the paranormal happenings of this village tend to spill over into this forest (Scannapiego).

2. Atlantic Blueberry Hill: New Jersey

  • The Haunted Tale: “This desolate pine forest makes camping at night feel downright creepy—especially since the Jersey Devil supposedly terrorized the area for 200 years. Many described it as a flying two-legged creature with hooves. Others say a woman named “Mother Leeds” invoked the devil as she gave birth to her 13th child, who flew off into the night shortly thereafter. Even Napolean Bonaparte’s brother has claimed to have seen the beast” (Scannapiego).

3. Hunting Island: South Carolina

  • The Haunted Tale: “It’s not just the creepy looking Spanish moss that makes Hunting Island a perfect Halloween camping spot. This barrier island—5000 acres of pristine sanctuary for deer, fiddler crabs, egrets and maritime forest—is just a short drive to Savannah, Georgia, AKA: America’s most haunted city. The entire area is famous for its disturbing accounts of aggravated spirits, hauntings and frightening cemeteries” (Scannapiego).
