The Spookiest Spots for Halloween in North Dakota

This article is by North Dakota Tourism. If you like these Halloween activity ideas, add them to an itinerary you create using the North Dakota trip planner.

October in North Dakota can be a scary month. From haunted forts to haunted cornfields and libraries – that’s right – cornfields and libraries, there are many places to scare up a fun Halloween experience. Everybody knows ghosts haunt forts like Fort Lincoln and Fort Totten, but did you know that Ghostbusters isn’t the only place you can hear spooks in a library. The Harvey Library has a ghost called Sophie and something is said to roam the State Library in Bismarck calling out names and making noises. Try these places for a hauntingly fun time:

Haunted Fort

It’s been a long time since Libbie Custer saw George ride away from Fort Abraham Lincoln. He and the 7th Cavalry were supposed to be gone a few months but they got sidetracked and George never came home. It’s said that Libbie is hanging out in the Custer House waiting, and that buildings at the fort are haunted. That is indeed the case for three weekends in October (14-15, 21-22, 28-29) when the grounds come to life with ghouls and goblin at the Haunted Fort. You might even find George or Libbie.

Acres of Terror

Leonard. The name itself doesn’t strike much fear in a person. But bring down the lights, or the sun in this case, release things like ZiggyD Wolf, Striker and Scremit Da Klown (come on, clowns are scary anytime) and you have Acres of Terror. There might even be a tour of the old Leonard High School, no matter what Alice Cooper told you.

Legends of Terror Haunted House

Victorian England was scary enough. Now experience a Victorian funeral parlor and other equally frightening sites in Grand Forks.

Dark Acres

By day, it’s your standard pumpkin patch, hoping to attract the carved-out eyes of the Great Pumpkin. But by night, the patch in Williston is transformed into Cottonwood Forest where scary folks await at every turn. There’s the electrocution chamber, the butcher’s nightmare and (yikes) demented clowns and dolls.

Hanging out in the cemetery

Life at Fort Buford in the 1800s wasn’t easy and many troopers found themselves face up in the post cemetery. This October, you can find out more about those unfortunate souls by strolling through the grounds. The annual cemetery walk will include ghost tales and, who knows, maybe even a visit from a soldier or two.

Haunts at the library

There really is no reason to fear the State Library in the Liberty Memorial Building on the state Capitol Grounds. Go there, read, enjoy your time and leave before closing. After closing, voices and footsteps have been heard by those working late into the evening. Doors have been heard opening and closing when no one else was in the building.

Old forts never die

Fort Totten was once an important location guarding trails during the westward expansion. Today, guests can stay at the Totten Trail Historic Inn Bed and Breakfast and enjoy all of the amenities, including nighttime visits from some of the former ghosts – I mean – guests of the fort.
