Spend The Night At Alaska’s Most Haunted Campground For A Truly Terrifying Experience

Whittier, Alaska, is an all-around creepy place. And the creepfest starts before you even arrive. There’s a long, narrow tunnel through the mountain just to get there, and the experience of driving through it is just plain unsettling. So you arrive in Whittier a little bit spooked from driving through that much darkness. The tunnel then spits you out right on the waterfront where there’s almost always a think blanket of fog blocking the view. You’ve arrived, now it’s time to camp at Whittier Camping & Parking for a paranormal weekend you’ll never forget. You can explore the reportedly haunted town and see for yourself if any of it is true. Without further ado, here’s more information on what just very well may be the most haunted campground in Alaska:

What’s the most haunted hotel in Alaska?

Few things are as terrifying as the notion of spending the night in a hotel. If you visit Alaska, you should know that there are several such places rumored to be paranormal. The title of the most haunted hotel in Alaska belongs to the Golden North Hotel in Skagway. Allegedly, there was a woman named Mary who came to stay at the hotel with her husband, who embarked on a journey to find gold. However, her husband never returned, and Mary locked herself in her room. She eventually passed away in the hotel room, and the hotel owners were distressed to find her there. Today, many guests have reported spotting Mary’s ghost in that very same hotel room.
