Take a Chilling Stroll Through the Real Camp Crystal Lake From Friday the 13th
By Jake Rossen
While he hasn’t been seen onscreen since 2009, Jason Voorhees remains one of the horror film genre’s most iconic figures. The star of 10 Friday the 13th films as well as 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason, the boogeyman has slashed his way to infamy.
If you’re a die-hard Jason fan, now you can take a walking tour of his old stomping grounds—Camp Crystal Lake, the summer getaway that was host to some of his greatest hits.
According to Bloody Disgusting, the filming location for the original 1980 movie, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco in Hardwick, New Jersey, is still an active Boy Scouts camp. While it's normally closed to the public, it will be open several days this fall so that horror movie fans can take a scenic stroll through Jason’s effective birthplace.
The tours are being organized by Crystal Lake Tours and feature a number of options. The limited Lakefront Tour will take visitors to the lake seen in the film for $89. A Full Tour allows fans to see all the filming locations in the property, as well as a chance to see them all in the dark. That runs $159. (Taxes and fees are extra.) Photos are allowed for either tour, and temperature checks and social distancing will be enforced. You have to be at least 15 years old to enter.
Crystal Lake Tours is booking guests for October 23, October 24, October 25, October 30, October 31, November 13, and November 14. Tickets are first-come, first-serve, so if you want to spend the Halloween season with Jason, you should register on the Crystal Lake Tours website.
