Welcome to Camp Kanawha in Downtown Richmond


Riverfront Canal Cruises is doing Halloween bigger and better than ever by bringing you two nights of haunted boat tours on Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26, combined with a new daytime, family-friendly cruise option on Saturday.

“Camp Kanawha” is a special, two-night only, thrills-filled boat ride geared toward those 12 and older. The event, on the historic Kanawha Canal, features haunting tales from Richmond’s past along with frightening scenes of a summer camping trip gone wrong! This haunted campsite turned gruesome graveyard will be a nightmare come to life in our 20-minute tours.

Canal boats leave every half hour (on the hour and the half hour) from 5-9 p.m., with the last boats departing at 8:30 p.m. both nights. Recommended ages for the Camp Kanawha Halloween cruises are 12 and up.

Tickets for the evening Camp Kanawha cruises are $8, and we recommend that tickets are purchased online, in advance.
