It’s that time of year when everyone is out there hunting down ghost stories and urban legends; zombies, vampires and goblins are all trending in your newsfeeds; and everyone from toddlers to senior citizens are trying to decide on the scariest costume around. So in honor of this truly terrifying time of year, we here at Mobile RV Awnings have decided to share with you a list of some of the spookiest locations across America. So gather your family—trust us, you won’t want to take this trip alone—and hit the road in your RV for a haunted Halloween tour of the United States:
The Canyon Motel RV Park: Since you’re setting out on an RV trip, we thought it only appropriate to start off with a haunted RV park. Most of the haunted activity at The Canyon Motel RV Park seems to take place in the Cabooses, which you can stay in overnight. Guests and employees alike have reported strange sounds, lights going on and off for no reason and even an old conductor walking through the Caboose swinging a lantern in the middle of the night. So far, no one can find a logical explanation for any of these events.
The Goldfield Hotel: Many paranormal investigators have been drawn to the Goldfield Hotel in Goldfield, Nevada. According to numerous reports items have been seen moving around inside on their own, some have seen strange shadows moving about, others have heard unexplainable sounds and others still have experienced extreme temperature drops inside some of the rooms. This old hotel is considered by many to be one of the most haunted buildings in the world.
Santa Fe National Forest: There is a campground in this national forest located in Holy Ghost Canyon. Legend has it, the canyon is haunted by the spirit of a priest who was killed by Pueblo people in the late 1680s. This is the only campground in the Forest Service that is alleged to be haunted.
St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum: It’s said that it is almost guaranteed that you will get at least one weird picture when visiting this lighthouse. Almost all tour attendees leave having been creeped out to their cores and many even leave in tears. So if you find the road takes you to America’s oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida, be sure to stop by the lighthouse to be thoroughly freaked out.
The Whaley House: This has been called the most haunted house in the country. Once home to the Whaley family, it is now said to be haunted by the spirits of Yankee Jim Robinson, Thomas Whaley, Anna Whaley, their daughter Violet and other children who have died in the building. This is probably our favorite haunted hot spot on the list because it’s located right near Mobile RV Awnings in San Diego. So if you do decide to make your way out to the Whaley House and suddenly find yourself in need of replacement RV awnings, give us a call and we’ll come to you!
