This experience was absolutely incredible! Highly recommend everyone to go here and definitely check out the photo and tour attraction!

Sunshine Walls

You will not meet a nicer family than the people that run this. We were also informed that there is security cameras around the property and people to watch them while they're in the night in case of something should happen.

I love the hospitality and the adventure I also loved being able to walk around and look at a historical site and show my kids about it. The background is amazing

This was really cool and really fun to do

Tonya Hagerman

Great down to earth and friendly people. It’s a great time of the year for a visit to Lake Shawnee. Halloween

Ronja Ohst

The trip over there was a waste and we came from North Carolina up there. We couldn't get in because it is a private property and you aren't allowed to trespass. It had a sign that said you have to get an appointment and nobody answered when we called the number on the sign.

Todd Carter

I loved this place. My friend and I stayed overnight and we were the only ones there. I was surprised to find there was a shelter, electricity, bathrooms and a fire pit. The owner was genuine, sweet and very informative. Unfortunately we didn't see anything paranormal but it was an awesome experience.

Got the chance to spend the night camping out there, with permission from the owner of course. I suggest getting permission before heading there. Never trespass. Needless to say we had a Spooktackuler time...

We had a excellent time!!! We did not realize we needed to arrange access with the owner. We are from NC and were disappointed thinking we missed out. However, Chris promptly responded after I called and was very kind and accommodating. He quikly arranged for us to gain access to the park. The donation for the "walk about" tour was worth every penny! Not only worth it for the time spent but also to help preserve this magical place! The caretaker Chris is a truly kind person. His love and knowledge for this place truly made a impression on us. We will definitely be returning in October for a overnight stay. The only paranormal activity we witnessed was meeting a truly kind human, that's more rare then seeing ghosts in my opinion! We highly recommend visiting but make sure to arrange site access or a tour before you arrive!

This is Lake Shawnee Haunted Amusement Park located near Princeton, WV. There is really nothing to see. The property is surrounded with fencing and no trespass signs are posted. We took the pictures as close as we could. As far as my family and I are concerned this was a wasted trip.

Jay Tyler

Such a beautiful place with so many stories to share. My kids and I loved it

Cher Hewitt

It has so much history...let's just leave it at that. I say go see for yourself! We have several E.V.P.s and some pictures from here. I cannot wait to stay overnight!

Connie Vaughan

vernon zoller

It's EVIL!

Cindy ramsey

It was a neat experience but highly overpriced at $30 a person. We were there during the day. Maybe it's different at night or when they have the actors set up for Halloween.

William Lyons

Plan to go

Ranae Houston

Pam Bates

Awesome adventure!!!

Amie Hendricks

Lots of fun. Very interesting. Cool history. And kinda spooky.

Alfred Walker

I was there 1986 and camped there with my family it was a wierd feeling then and last night was even more

Jeremy Thomas

Such a fascinating place, quirky history

Lindsey Martin

The $20 "history tour" is self guided and you don't really know what you're looking at. Definitely priced really high for what you're doing.

I would normally jump on the opportunity to chance encountering paranormal activity but I have to say how I'm a little disturbed with this location. It seems like the owner is profiting off visitors because the history is enriched with tales of death. If people actually died here, children especially, I wouldn't be so eager to charge any dollar amount to discuss how tragic it was.. or it's such a loss of human life.. and then there's actual Halloween festivities held here on top of it? Tourist trap. No question about it.

karen carey

Best tour by far! So much history, tragedy and a few spirits here and there! We loved it!

Willow Rose Sierra

Went here for an all night ghost hunt!! Made a good friend, Russ Bailey. Wasn't much in the way of spirits showing themselves until Russ & I snuck off around 2am & we got an hour of good footage on the old schoolbus of a guy who lived on the schoolbus but had a heart attack & died.

Lora Nichols

Great creapy place to visit.

Mavis Shearing

This place is hauntingly beautiful. My husband and I went on short notice, we called on Tuesday, and were allowed to tour Wednesday. The owner Jewell gave us a tour filled with history paranormal activity and pure friendliness. Chris scheduled us and gave us background before we booked and was so polite! I highly recommend going, we plan on going back for a night tour soon!

Christopher Perdue

Loved this place

Allen Hudgins

RC Jones

A lot of kids died here... some say you can hear a girl singing or talking I think. I have a story. Once a mother dropped her 9 year old son off at the lake. Once she came back, he wasn't there. The searched until 10:00 pm until they found his arm was stuck in a drain. He had already drowned...

Loved it peaceful place with a lot of history

Toby Salyer

Not sure if it's still open, couldn't find anyone there. Small place can see it all from the road.

Ronald Stites

One star is too good for this place, total rip off.. good reviews about this place only come from the locals that work there.

Kaylee Boothe

Very fascinating

Katie Mariani

Locals at a gas station about a block away had no idea what this place was. The concept of waiting until 5 at night to pay $20 to take a picture not my idea of fun way to Guard it like Fort Knox.

Big Aaron Kay

Lots of history here had an awesome experience!! Even if you are not into the "ghost, orb, ect" stuff it is still very historical and interesting!!!

Jennfier York

Overall I enjoyed myself and would really like to go back. Went on a ghost hunt with Ghost Hunt Weekends, TWC, Steve and Tango. My husband and I really had a great time and the owner is really nice.

Me and my friends do these haunted places and haunted houses every year, and let me say this was the lamest one we ever seen. When we first arrived there was no one to tell you where to park or where to go to get tickets. They had us walk around unguided, the history tour they sold us was a old lady with pictures spread over a old picnic table talking bout them, again not much of a tour. There was a man by the swings that gave some good stories, he also said the other story tellers where sick. After the history "tour" we continued to the haunted house part of the attraction, when asked where we could purchase some drinks before we went over we was told that there was no concessions, they said normally there are but the woman that does that is sick also. We went through the haunted house section which was even more horrible than the tour, it seemed short of personnel due to it's constant recycling of characters, there was no line and took forever to start. To sum it up this WHOLE operation is TERRRIBLE! This is definitely the worse place I've ever visited from it's bumbling employees to the more than terrible haunted house constructed from pallets and sheets. Don't get me wrong the history of this place is very cool, but these people don't seem to be putting the effort in the place to make it the scary attraction that it could be. My advice is steer clear of this place or you will be severely dissapointed like my group was.
