Today is the only Friday the 13th of the year. That's right, the only one we will have on the calendar until 2023. So we figured we would have a little fun, and discuss the possibility of an overnight stay at "Crystal Lake."
For those not familiar with the Friday the 13th movies, Camp Crystal Lake is the home of crazed psychopath Jason Voorhees.
According to Wikipedia
In the original Friday the 13th (1980), Mrs. Pamela Voorhees stalks and murders teenagers preparing Camp Crystal Lake for re‑opening. She is determined to ensure the camp does not reopen, after her son Jason drowned in the lake, due to the negligence of two staff members. In Friday the 13th Part 2 Five years later, a group of teenagers arrive at Crystal Lake to set up a new camp, but Jason murders them.
With that in mind, doesn't an overnight stay at a Crystal Lake Campground sound like fun?
Montana is home to our very own Crystal Lake and it is located south of Lewistown.
According to Visitmt.com
Crystal Lake Campground is located on Crystal Lake in the shadow of Mt. Harlow at an elevation of 5,700 feet. The 28 campsites are large, secluded, and widely spaced. This is an excellent family campground not only because of the lake, but also the large network of trails.
Thankfully, Montana's Crystal lake is not the home of an actual summer camp complete with teenage camp counselors. It is simply a high elevation mountain lake with a quaint little campground.
Just don't forget your hockey mask!
