Canoe the Caney Haunted Canoe Trip
If you like your ghost stories with a side of adventure, you’ll want to check out Canoe the Caney’s Haunted Canoe Trip. Every Friday and Saturday night, guests start at the old cemetery where they will hear chilling tales of ghostly visits, unexplained voices, and lost graves. After guests are taken down to the water’s edge, they board a canoe and paddle to the location of the 1800’s sunken cemetery that sits 15 feet below the water’s surface. Legend has it the spirits are trapped just beneath the dark waters of Cemetery Cove!
