The annual Haunted Hayrides will take place each evening, beginning at dark, on October 18, 19, 25, and 26, 2013. A tractor-pulled hayride will head out of the campground to search for scary characters such as werewolves, ghosts, ghouls, and vampires.
The cost for this event is only $5.00 per person; children must be accompanied by an adult.
Campers can enjoy and participate in the Haunted Campground Halloween October 25-26, 2013.
The park’s recreational staff has some special activities including ghost hunting just like on television. Ghost hunt experts will be on hand to discuss and teach techniques involved in paranormal research.

Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is named for a remarkable pioneer woman who endured an Indian attack that left three of her four children dead. Pregnant with a fifth child, she and her youngest child were taken captive; that child would soon also die at the hands of their captors. After giving birth, that child was also killed.
Jenny Wiley managed to finally escape and she made her way back to a frontier settlement where she was reunited with her husband.
The park opened in 1962 and offers something for everyone. Located on the 1,100-acre Dewey Lake, the park has the May Lodge with 49 rooms and a conference center, the Music Highway Grill restaurant cottages, and a 121-site campground.
Recreational opportunities are numerous with fishing, boating, swimming, hiking trails, and more. In addition, from June through August, the Jenny Wiley Theatre Company performs Broadway Musicals in the outdoor amphitheater.
