Enter the deep, dark, haunted forest of Field of Screams Maryland and get to know the unsavory locals that call these woods home – and the unlucky campers that entered for a visit and were left for dead among the catacombs. Field of Screams Maryland offers two haunted trails: The Haunted Trail and the Trail of Terror. In the cold, haunted forest, relax and enjoy the sounds of nature – like footsteps, clowns laughing, creaking cabins and chainsaws. The crisp air isn’t the only part of these great outdoors that will make your skin crawl.

The Haunted Trail 

Experience the haunted trail known as Camp Fear, the newest attraction at Field of Screams Maryland. Take a 30-minute walk through the cold, dark, haunted forest and visit 13 campground stations dotting the trail. You’ll recognize the playground and covered bridge from your own campground days. But the hillbillies, butchers and clowns have turned the precious campground into a dark maze of sewage and terror with bodies strewn everywhere. 

The actors, animation and props take the Halloween haunted trails experience to a new level – heightening your senses and horrifying your imagination. Purchase tickets for the Haunted Trail. 

Trail of Terror

The Trail of Terror is among the scariest attractions at Field of Screams Maryland. Experience the haunted forest that truly comes alive when guests arrive. This 30-minute walk is unlike other Halloween haunted trails, with 13 haunted houses, zombies and sites of horrific events to greet you. The locals are welcome and the door is always open to the bone chilling slant house, skinner shack and bunkhouse.
