Camp Calavera Trick-or-Treat Trail is a family-friendly "light fright", where you will enter The Haunted Lodge without all the scary creatures lurking nearby. Instead you will meet Elroy The Elk and recieve a treat bag before setting off into the woods with a trusty flashlight, searching for trick-or-treat stations along the trail. Recommended for children 12 and under. Children under 7 MUST enter with a paid accompanying adult. There are no scary actors inside the haunt during this timeframe, and fun Halloween classic songs will echo throughout the maze instead of our startling nighttime soundtrack.


The Haunted Lodge returns to present Camp Calavera, a once tranquil popular campground has become inhabited by the darkness of the woods. Ritual artifacts have been discovered, leading to the assumption that strange and unholy practices have occurred in the depths of our forest long after the sun sets. The Bait Shop and 6th grade camp dorms have long been shut down, but stranger occurrences have been recently reported by lost campers and hikers. An eerie glow has been rumored to rise to the surface of Lake Potowotominimac.

***NOTE: Some of the camp's woodsy property has been sold off to the Azbell Lumber Company for logging, so you must stay on marked trail at all times. We are not responsible for "lost limbs" beyond those fences...


One of Southern California's most unique haunt experiences, where you become part of the attraction. We are a haunted maze/haunted trail hybrid, all taking place in an outdoor setting. Portions of the maze will only be illuminated by your camp-issued flashlight, so stay with your group! (Only one light will be given per group). Proper footwear is highly suggested, as the grounds throughout Camp Calavera are covered in thick mulch. Cell phone use, photography or recording of any kind is not permitted without prior permission once inside The Haunted Lodge.
