Spooky Spirits of Point Lookout


Visit one of the Chesapeake's spookiest spots for some good old-fashioned ghost stories. Point Lookout State Park is full of mysteries and - just maybe - supernatural residents, including Civil War soldiers and lighthouse keepers. Check out some of the eerie tales.

Spirits of Point Lookout is a historically representative, interactive event featuring some of Point Lookout’s many legendary tragedies and hauntings. Events of the evening include music, mouthwatering concessions from Smokey Joe’s BBQ, Hawaii Joe and others, live presentations, games for the children and much, much more.

Spirits of Point Lookout is not a “Haunted House” styled event. Presentations are suitable for children, however, the event does require a 50-minute, half-mile walk. Parents are responsible for determining their child’s suitability for the event.

Note: Reenactments are intended to accurately reflect historical conditions. Some may be considered too violent for younger children.

Proceeds from Spirits of Point Lookout benefit Southern Maryland youth leadership programs and other service needs.
