On Location

The name of the camp near Blairstown is No-Be-Bo-Sco. Sand Pond Road intersects Nobebosco Road. It's an active Boy Scout Camp. The camp is actually in Hardwick Township just north of Blairstown. One scene where they are walking to the camp and pass the red barn, is Millbrook Road in Hardwick. [Thanks to Brian, Cyndi and Drew]

At the beginning with that first girl that was murdered, she was walking through Town of Blairstown, NJ and that's where that guy picked her up to drive her near the camp. [Thanks to Cyndi]

The Turkey Swamp Park in Freehold, New Jersey was used at the ending when Alice is pulled under the water and where the cop drove down the hill. [Thanks to Jason M. Allentoff]

The graveyard is on the road to Blairstown via Vail. [Thanks to J Johnson]

The other area with the graveyard is in the Town of Hope, NJ. [Thanks to Cyndi]

Freehold, New Jersey was used for the end of the movie.

Hope, New Jersey and Ontario, Canada were apparently also used.

As far as we knew, and that means all of the kids in the surrounding area, we were told that the roads and the forest scenes were filmed on Rock-A-Dundy Rd in Hampden, MA. [Thanks to A]

The diner scene was filmed at the Blairstown Diner. Its still there and still open.

The scene where they are riding in the pickup truck going to the camp is on the same road that leads to camp No-Be-Bo-Sco. As a side note about that scene they are in reality drivng away from the camp.

The scene were the girl is picked up by the oil delivery guy is on the stllwater road.

Some of the lake scenes were filmed at Mohawk YMCA camp, about 15 mins from the other lake.

Another note, when you see it raining at the diner it is actually the blairstown fire dept. creating the rain.

The reason I know all this is because I lived in blairstown at the time. [Thanks to Pete Bransky]
