A bucket list item for any Friday the 13th, Part 1 super fan!
Our guided tours will take you to all of the major filming locations in the camp that have been made famous on television and film.

Most tours are approximately 3 hours long and some include a meal in our historic dining hall. This is a walking tour that is approximately 1 mile long. Please come prepared with comfortable shoes and be prepared for all weather conditions.
