Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event has been canceled. We hope to welcome you back in fall 2021.

Experience Bear Creek Lake Park in all its ghoulish magic in an evening of ghostly trails and tales. Walk along the Owl Trail and discover the critters of the night, enjoy carnival games, and tasty treats.

After your adventure, warm your toes by the fire at the amphitheater and enjoy roasting marshmallows and sipping hot chocolate.  



"Haunted" Trail Adventure

Walk along the Owl Trail and discover the critters of the night. This family-friendly trail adventure is designed to explore the misunderstood and sometimes spooky animals that call Bear Creek Lake Park home. We will explore coyotes, bats, spiders, mountain lions, bears, and so much more as we conquer fears and debunk the myths surrounding these Front Range animals.

Carnival Games

Step right up and let your little superhero or princess show off their skills in these wickedly fun carnival games with a Halloween twist. Whether it’s throwing frogs into a cauldron or bowling with gourds, your little one is guaranteed to enjoy the challenge. All games included with price of admission.

Campfire/Marshmallow Roast 

What better way to end the night than a roasting marshmallow, a cup of hot cocoa from Village Roasters and a campfire? Meet us behind the visitor center at the Learning Circle amphitheater and warm your bones by the fire.

Photo Booth 

Step into our free photo booth and capture the magic of the evening (costumes encouraged).

We will be posting all of the photos to the Bear Creek Lake Park Facebook for you to copy and share as you’d like, but you are also welcome to take your own.
