Jason Voorhees has been to Manhattan, hell, and outerspace, but he's most closely associated with Camp Crystal Lake. The setting of Friday the 13th may not exist in real life, but there is an actual lake in Minnesota where you can find the masked murderer—or a statue of him, at least.

According to Bloody Disgusting, diver Doug Klein built the Jason Voorhees statue and deposited it in a watery grave in 2013. The old Louise mine pit in Crosby, Minnesota, is a popular site for divers, and the Friday the 13th monument has become an underwater attraction. The statue is reminiscent of the end of 1986's Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, when Jason is chained to the bottom of the same lake where he drowned as a child. But while the movie villain has been resurrected for numerous sequels, Minnesota's Jason statue isn't going anywhere.

The figure does look a bit different than it did in 2013. Last year, Klein's friend and fellow diver Curtis Lahr visited the floor of the mine pit to record an update of the landmark. After being submerged in murky waters for several years, Jason is more terrifying than ever. You can compare the videos of the statue captured in 2013 and 2020 below.

Doug Klein isn't the only person who's thought to install Friday the 13th-inspired art at the bottom of a lake. Lake Pleasant in Arizona was once home to a Jason tribute of its own, but park officials had it removed. There are no plans to take Jason out of his Minnesota location, so if the statue goes missing one day, you may want to avoid any campgrounds in the area.
