If you like ghost stories and things that go bump in the night, you’re going to want to hang around Camp Helen State Park for a spell Oct. 13 for the seventh annual Ghost Walk and History Tour.

The Friends of Camp Helen have a ghoulish evening planned to delight families with real-life ghost stories and Halloween-themed refreshments.

“We’ve chosen this event and its name because of the real ghost sightings on the park as a part of its history,” said Lynn Cherry with Friends of Camp Helen, the fundraising arm of the state park.

This event is certainly more treat than trick, and is made for kids of all ages and their families.

Cherry emphasized that there would be nothing wicked afoot.

“It’s family friendly,” she said. “This is not a ghost walk that intends to scare you. We’re not going to have people out there with chainsaws.”

The spirits will be high at seven stations where dressed-up volunteers will regale spectators with historical stories of eerie, ghostly characters.
