All Hallows’ Eve is nearly upon us! Here at Ravenwood Castle we love to highlight local events in the Hocking Hills region that are great for families, couples, and adventurers alike; Halloween time being no exception. Of course we host our own weekend-long Halloween event at the Castle, featuring the Mad Professor von Gerd and his series of experiments. Tickets for our Halloweekend sold out in record-breaking time this year, but don’t fret, there are plenty of other amazing spooky events in the surrounding area!
Hocking Halloween Campout at Ash Cave
Hocking Hills State Park is hosting a campout, ghost tour, and other spooky activities during the last week of October. On Friday, October 25th at 7 PM join an area naturalist at Ash Cave to explore the Spirits of Ash Cave. The program does contain ghost stories, children should attend at their parents’ discretion. Back at the campsites, registered campers and cabin guests can enjoy a hayride, a family fun spooky movie, site judging, and trick or treat at Old Man’s Cave campground. Regular camping & cabin fees apply.
Halloween on the Hocking River
Canoe along the Hocking River in your best spooky costume. Book your canoe and heed their spooky warning: “On the river there is nowhere to hide from whoever or whatever is lurking behind the bend. Once in the canoe there is no turning back.” This will definitely be a memorable canoe trip! S’mores and hayride to follow. Become part of the adventure at the Family Fun Center at 6 p.m. on Fridays in October. Located at 22663 Main Street, Rockbridge, Ohio.

The outdoor haunted trail includes special-effect lighting, actors, and animation. Not recommended for children under 10.
