It grows dark, the smells of freshly harvested crops and warm spiced apple cider begin to fade. The leaves crunching under foot as each step is taken towards the house, but what's that sound? A snapping stick in the distance, is there something moving in the woods? As Halloween gets closer, you may find yourself looking for some great spooky places to visit. Wisconsin is full of interesting and fun places to check out when it comes to good haunts. There are several haunted houses, mazes and hayrides throughout the state, as well as rumored haunted lighthouses, hotels, restaurants and other spooky locations.
Northwest Wisconsin Haunted Houses
No hayrides. No escape. No mercy. Dreadwood is an isolated, undeveloped forest in Hudson, WI. It is not a park surrounded by neighborhoods or filled with cabins. You should expect to walk a half mile on a dirt path, so dress warmly and with comfortable shoes. There will be no turning back, no side-doors or escape routes — once you have entered Dreadwood, the only way out is through.
