You can tour the camp where Friday the 13th was filmed, in the dark, if you dare.

Camp Crystal Lake is actually at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, a Boy Scout Camp in New Jersey that opened in 1927. It didn't become famous until 1979 after the Friday the 13th movie was released. Since horror films and a Boy Scout camp don't mix, fans weren't allowed to visit. That changed on Friday, May 13th 2011, when the first camp tour saw people travelling from as far as 3000 miles away. The second tour was held more than 2 years later and sold out in just 8 minutes. The third tour in 2015 sold out within seconds.

For 2021 several tours are being held through early June, including a canoe tour to see the famous lake from a whole new perspective and a evening flashlight tour.
