Costumed guides will lead visitors on a haunted tour of the park grounds and fort, where they will encounter ghostly characters and tales of war, torture and imprisonment. Reenactors will also depict scenes from the fort’s past, including the French and Indian War, the American Revolution and the American Civil War.

Attendees should dress appropriately for the weather, sturdy boots or sneakers are recommended, as the terrain can be rugged and/or muddy. In the case of inclement weather call the park to see whether or not the event has been canceled.
