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.

    They put a lot of effort into this every year and the proceeds go to a great cause! We go almost every year and will continue to go! The people are friendly and very respectful!

  • Email Verified Lots of potential

    Was really excited to try this haunt out. Great location, plenty of opportunity to scare, however fell way short. The narrator did a great job and setting up the trail and providing background to the haunt. Corn fields are always scary, many places to jump out and surprise the guests, well this didn't happen. There were not many scare actors in the corn field, what a let down. Then, a pitch dark trailer, not very scary. If I wanted to walk around in pitch dark I can go into my basement. Underwhelming to say the least but great snacks and story.

  • Email Verified Definitely a go-to!

    This was our first time visiting but won't be our last. The story told at the beginning really sets you up for the trail ahead. Each group was given a flashlight, but warned it may intentionally change colors or go dark as you maneuver the trail. If you enjoy a good adrenaline rush, this is the place to go. The scarers were very realistic and convincing. I really love that it's a not-for-profit organization and the money goes to a great cause in the surrounding communities. Other positives include: on-site concessions and fire pit for keeping warm when waiting your turn.

  • Absolutely wonderful!!!

    The only thing i see that could have been improved on is more haunts all around, but i also realize it is difficult to find people to do this as well. Donations all go to a good charity every year!!

  • 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.
