The No-Be-Bo-Sco camp is an active Boy Scout camp that can be found in the Hardwick Township, New Jersey and it is in fact the location that was used on the original Friday the 13th Part 1 film, better known as the Crystal Lake Camp. The staff from No-Be-Bo-Sco camp mentions that fans of the film on Friday the 13th are regularly drawn to the area, and its spooky vibe is perfect for organizing a camping evening.
The field started doing tours for all those Friday the 13th fans in 2011, and since then their tours have only been more popular! the approximately 1-mile long guided tour will take visitors to all of the major filming locations in the camp that have been made famous.

If this is not enough, one of the surprises that makes the visitor’s experience much more incredible is Adrienne King, one of the film’s actresses, who is also part of the event! this camp is still being used mainly for boy scouts and camping but they don’t try to hide the fact that this is where a really bloody movie was filmed and horror fans love it.
