After being canceled for two years in a row, an annual spooky attraction will return to Fort Knox in 2022.

Five nights of Fright will return this year. Organizers for Fright At The Fort are already working on bringing the creepy event back, bigger than ever before. Last year the annual Halloween attraction was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. It was second year in a row the annual event had been canceled. 2020 was the first time the event was canceled since it began more than 20 years ago.

Fright At The Fort 2022 Dates:

  • October 15
  • October 22, 23
  • October 29, 30

The three weekend event is Fort Knox's biggest annual fundraiser. Roughly 10,000 visitors visit the spooky attraction each year. The 2018 Stephen King theme brought in a record setting 15,050 visitors over the five Fright nights.

Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory will open for the season May 1.

Take A Forbidden Look Inside Frozen Fort Knox

Fort Knox is closed for the season. While winter visitors can roam the grounds, the interior of the fort is closed off from the general public. If you browse through the photos below, you'll see why the fort is strictly off-limits until spring. That being said, we were given permission to enter the fort to create this gallery.

Again, the fort is closed from November through April. Do not attempt to enter the interior of Fort Knox. Entering the fort during the closed months is trespassing, and very dangerous.

With 6,000 lakes and ponds, Maine has A LOT of freshwater shoreline. Some are densely populated in the summer months, while others are as remote as the wilderness that surrounds them. They're home to Maine's thriving gamefish populations, which calls-in anglers from all over the country. Ever wondered which of these lakes are the deepest in the state? We checked-over depth charts and topographic maps to find the 10 deepest lakes in Maine, as according to their maximum depth.
