Dreadwood Haunted Forest

MN Haunted Houses

No hayrides. No escape. No mercy.

Dreadwood is an isolated forest outside of Hudson, WI. It is not a park surrounded by neighborhoods or filled with cabins. When night falls out here it is very, very dark.

At the entrance there will be snacks and drinks (hot and cold) available for purchase, both before you enter, and after. There will also be a public bonfire after. Provided there is an after.

You will walk a half mile on a dirt path in the late autumn, so bring warm clothes and comfortable shoes. You may see things that disgust you. You may feel disoriented, stifled, pursued, and preyed upon. Your guide will know the way. You MUST stay with your guide. There are no side-doors or escape routes — once you have entered Dreadwood, the only way out is through.



This was our second year coming here and we loved it more this year than last. Going to make it a tradition. Thank you to all who volunteer! Tammy, 2016 (Facebook)
The setting is perfect. Even the drive down the long spooky driveway. Being all for charity makes it amazing. The creepy monsters! We screamed and laughed the whole way! Janie, 2016 (Facebook)
Last night was my first time and had a blast! My throat hurt from screaming so much! I've been now to every haunted house/hayride in the twin cities area and I was pleasantly surprised at how great of experience this was look forward to going back again! Jessica, 2016 (Facebook)
