Victoria, British Columbia
Vancouver Island is a popular spot for RVers year round, so if you find yourself near Victoria this Halloween, head over for a tour of Craigdarroch Castle. A legendary Victorian mansion, it was built between 1887 and 1890 and sits on a hill overlooking the city. It’s rumored that several ghosts are in residence, with some visitors reporting sightings and eerie music.
Gibraltar Point Lighthouse
One the oldest buildings in the city, the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse boasts a spooky local lore about a murdered 19th-century lighthouse keeper. Visitors have reported unexplained lights and a shadowy figure roaming the shore. Ghost or no ghost, it’s a beautiful historic site to visit while in the area.
Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel
If you’re camping in Banff National Park, pop into town and take a stroll through the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel for the chance of a ghostly encounter. Watch out for a sighting of the veiled Ghost Bride or the long departed bellman.
St. Louis Ghost Train
St. Louis, Saskatchewan
If your RV road trip in Saskatchewan takes you north of the village of St. Louis, keep your eyes peeled for the mysterious ghost train that lights the path where tracks once were. The ghostly apparition is said to be visible almost every night.
The Dungarvon River
Blackville, New Brunswick
Located near the beautiful Miramichi River and its tributaries —the Renous, Cains, Dungarvon, and Bartholomew rivers, the village of Blackville is a great RV destination for avid anglers. You might wake to an eerie sound, though, if you’ve camping along the Dungarvon River. A murdered lumber camp cook, Ryan, known as The Dungarvon Whooper, is said to haunt the area with mournful, whooping cries. You’ll find a chainsaw carving of Ryan wielding his frying pan at the Municipal Park in Blackville.
