Wompus Woods Haunted Trail (Cowpens, SC)

864-680-4743

Wompus Woods Haunted Trail is open Oct. 4-5, 11-12, 18-19, 25-26, and nightly from Halloween through November 2. The legend of the Wompus monster can be traced back to the early 1900s, through the tellings of farmers from the Bayous of Louisianna to South Carolina. The late spring to late fall time has him living in the hills of South Carolina. But as the weather cools, he makes his way down to the warm swamps of southern Louisianna. No one knows where he came from, why he is here, or what his intentions are. Tickets are $20 per adult and $10 for children ten and younger; cash is the only accepted form of payment.
