Haunts and Halloween Fun in Hells Canyon

Autumn has landed in the Lewis-Clark Valley! This vivid change of seasons offers  beautiful, scenic walks through flaming foliage – along the Snake River levees and in the Idaho Department of Fish & Game Lewiston Wildlife Habitat Area.  And then … around almost every turn in town, there’s fun and fright for everyone of any age!

A number of haunted sites have sprung up, bringing with them a ghoulishly good time.

  • Nightmare On Grelle Avenue’s admission is $10 per person and a promises a serious turn of terror to those brave enough to enter the walls.
  • The Haunted House at Clarkston High School asks $3 for your first trip and $1 for any further trips through their hallways of horror.
  • The Haunted Hay Ride is $5 per carload and, once seated on the wagon, passengers should bundle up for a spooky ride through the shadowy twists and turns of Hells Gate State Park.
  • Ghost Tours of historic downtown Lewiston are offered by appointment and bring  you up close and personal with spirits from the past.


Trick or Treat Nights are planned for boo’s and ghoul’s of every age.

  • Main Street Trick or Treat in Beautiful Downtown Lewiston is free and open to the public of all ages and promises SAFE treats and activities.
  • Sixth Street Trick or Treat in historic downtown Clarkston is free and open to the public and invites everyone to enjoy contests and SAFE treats.


An a-maize-ing adventure is waiting for the whole family.

  • At the U of I Corn Maze, try your hand at finding your way through pathways in 11 acres of corn, shoot a pumpkin cannon – there’s more, including a hay bale maze for tiny ones. All for $5 per person.


Pumpkin fun for everyone.

  • Pumpkin Palooza celebrates all things pumpkin – music, food, fun, activities and more are waiting in Beautiful Downtown Lewiston where admission is free and open to the public.
