A Trip To This Haunted Amusement Park In West Virginia Is Truly Terrifying

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park near Princeton could easily be one of the creepiest places in West Virginia. The area was first a Native American burial ground, and then later the site of a massacre of European settlers. The first park owner was unaware of this history, but tragedy struck again when two children died in accidents at the park. Since then, the rides have been abandoned and left to rust away.

The address for Lake Shawnee can be misleading for some GPS systems, so enter 470 Matoaka Rd, Rock, WV 24747 to get close to the park.
