Welcome to Hiestand's Haunted Woods!

2015 Season Info

Hiestand's Haunted Woods will NOT be open in 2015. Instead, the haunted woods crew is partnering with Huggy Bear Campground to bring you a new Haunted Trail for two weekends only! Open October 9 & 10 and 16 & 17. Proceeds to benefit St. Jude's. Visit www.vwcclub.org for details and find updates from the Van Wert Community Club on Facebook and twitter. Let's make this a great year for St. Jude kids!

VampireCome, if you dare, and venture into the depths of terror. Be warned, this event is NOT for the feint of heart! We utilize strobe lights, fog, moving floors, and other extreme effects. Creatures and scares await around almost every corner. Proceed with caution, if you D.A.R.E.!

We will be open from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in October, weather permitting. For admission information, directions, and additional details, creep on over to our Dates & Location page. There is also info on how to get a $1 discount!

Kiddie Lane

Look past the trees and you will find the woods are a magical place. A family-friendly section will be open Friday and Saturday nights during regular haunt hours. Lots of non-scary fun for all ages. Admission to Kiddie Lane is only $2 per person.
