Camp Roger at Pickerel Lake, MI: Camp Roger is a religious youth camp, but it is said, that a young camper drowned in the lake one summer. His ghost has been reported as running down a hill behind the lake shouting, “I’m gonna push you in the lake!” before vanishing.
The Campground Massacre Haunted House – Charlotte, NC: Attached to this campground is a man-made haunted attraction. Not only do you get to experience the haunted woods nearby with indoor attractions along the way, but the owners have built a haunted mansion, Mina’s Mansion, that totally effects your mind!
Midway Wicked Woods – Statesville, NC (near Winston-Salem KOA): Transported by a wagon, you are dropped off in the “Wicked Woods,” unguided and on your own. The only way to get back is to guide your way through the woods, through the scary buildings, a haunted graveyard and the Maze of Horror! But watch out, Wicked Willie is waiting for you!
