Explore an abandoned resort and stir up some of the ghosts and creatures who hide in the shadows. Be careful as you move through the woods because you never know who... or what... is watching you... maybe some guests who checked into their cabins but never left? Strange things happen in the off-season around here and there are many stories about missing campers who just disappeared. Pay attention or else you might end up one of those stories!
Miller's Nightmare is a full, extensive haunted farm and Halloween event. We offer food, games, bonfires, music and a haunted farm to explore. The haunted farm features a mysterious hayride which transports guests from the first farm to the second farm. From there, guests must wind their way through a pitch black corn maze with with inhabitants inflicted with a plethora of ailments. Then they venture into a forest of even darker night, only to find more fright. Hours: ticket sales begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. Dates: Oct. 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29, and 31.
