Only In New Jersey Will You Find An Authentic Friday The 13th Trolley Tour

Most Garden State horror buffs know (and take pride in the fact) that Friday The 13th was filmed in New Jersey. The iconic 1980 slasher flick tells the story of a group of teenage camp counselors who are murdered one by one by an unknown killer while attempting to re-open an abandoned summer camp. That summer camp (Camp Crystal Lake in the film) is New Jersey’s own Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco. Other film scenes were shot in and around Hardwick, Hope, and Blairstown.
