Hidden away in the northeast corner of Jefferson County lurks what many haunt enthusiasts consider the most unique and genuinely frightening haunted event in Southern Illinois. Upon arrival visitors enjoy a light-hearted hayride into the surrounding dark woods, but once the wagon stops, and they disembark the mood changes. Dancing flames draw them close to hear an original ghost story inspired by area lore. When the storyteller has finished, participants are divided into groups, provided a single light, and sent on an unguided walk. Beneath the trees, the sounds of the night toy with the imagination, beasts lurk at the edge of sight, and dark figures creep ever closer. Ahead the trail promises deliverance but is that all that awaits? Experience the terror anew this October.

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified The real haunting☠️

    I’ve visited a lot of haunted attractions from Indy to St. Louis but this spook walk earns the top spot! The atmosphere from the beginning is creepy from the drop off in the backwoods to the haunted forests and dark corn fields, it’s every haunt enthusiasts dream. Highly recommend and will be returning next year!

    My family and I have went to horse creek many times before. But this past year was awesome! The story telling at the beginning really got you in the moment, and the atmosphere was just out of this world.

    The Haunting at Horse Creek was excellent! We loved every minute of it and the wait time wasn’t bad. We will definitely be returning next year.

  • AMAZING!!!

    Absolutely the best haunted anything around! The cost was far below its worth as well. So scary my boyfriend actually used me as a shield at one point 😂. It was my second time going. The first time was a few years back with my kids and they loved it too, talked about it for days.

  • Great Experience

    We went to The Haunting at Horse Creek on their last night of the 2022 season. It was well worth the hour and fifteen minute drive! The story teller at the beginning of the trail has a great way of pulling everyone in from the very beginning, and keeps you thinking about what was told throughout your journey. Admission was donation based. They were also serving drinks and food, as well as keeping a fire pit going for everyone waiting in line. Will definitely go back again!

  • Unique Among Haunted Attractions

    There are loads of really good haunted events in and around southern Illinois but there isn't anyone anywhere like Horse Creek. The whole thing is story driven and has a natural creepiness you can't put your finger on. I can't recommend The Haunting at Horse Creek highly enough.

  • Chainsaw chase and corn maze had me in tears!!!

    I went to The Haunting at Horse Creek with a group of my friends last weekend. It was amazing! The chainsaws chased us through the corn maze and had me in tears. My friends had an awesome time! I highly recommend it and will for sure go again.

  • Best scare ever

    I went to this the last year it was open and it was amazing. When I found out it was open again this year I was so excited and let me just say I was not disappointed. This is always the best scare and the price is extremely good especially compared to out haunts around the area. You can count on seeing me again next year.

    One of my favorite Halloween attractions! We go to local haunted houses every year and always make our way to Horecreek, it stands on its own with their hayride, spooky stories, and our favorite haunted barn!
