Guest Reviews Guest Average: 7.1 out of 10

Bre – 8 / 10 – October 29, 2022 Kate went above and beyond to help us out. She’s a great employee. The only thing I would of …show more charged about the night was separating the groups better. I know it’s hard when you have such a busy night but it would of made the attraction more enjoyable. Thanks again for helping us out kate!

Lindsey – 6.2 / 10 – October 15, 2022 It was alright. The animatronics were WAY over done and you could hear the mechanics of them, which …show more took away from the scare. They should utilize more actors. The different story lines differed from mediocre to mildly scary. They also don’t space groups out so you are constantly running into the team ahead of you and multiple teams behind you. Overall it was fun and different, but when I go to a haunted house attraction, I expect to be scared. It definitely wasn’t worth the $37.

Do you dare to wander through the dark and murky forest at Haunted Hollow? The cold night air fills your lungs, and you can't stop shivering. But the cold isn't why you're shaking. Suddenly the hair on your neck shoots up as you hear a blood-curdling scream in the distance. You're not sure if it came from the old, murky oak tree in the distance or the sinister, ominous shack around the corner. As you try to calm yourself you hear something rustling behind you. You heart starts to beat uncontrollably and your breathing becomes labored. But it's too late to turn back now. You're stuck in 13 acres of the most menacing, horrifying and ghastly haunted forest in Utah. Hiding behind every tree and lurking around every corner are the demons, ghosts and ghouls that only existed in your worst nightmares: until now. Every step counts, because you don't know if it will be your last.

Utah is well-known for its stunning red rock formations and arches, its gorgeous alpine mountain lakes, ski resorts and hiking trails. But Utah also has a somewhat darker side. Many places around the Beehive State are thought to be haunted, or have other terrifying or horrific past histories. Last year we wrote about many of these places, and we’ve compiled all of them here for you in one article.

For additional information on each place, click on the link in the description, which will take you to our original article that provides more details.

If walk-through haunted houses are too tame for you, how about visiting a place that’s actually haunted?

According to urban legend, Utah has its fair share of haunted locales. While this isn’t a comprehensive list of everywhere someone has claimed to see a ghost in Utah, these five are some of the most popular and have several reports of the same supernatural experiences.

  • Top 5 haunted places in Utah that you can visit

1. Union Station, Ogden

Now home to several museums, this building was originally the Intermountain West’s junction for train travel, according to Visit Ogden . First built in 1869, it was rebuilt in a new location in 1889 but mostly burned down in 1923. Repairs began soon after, but after a railroad clerk was killed by falling debris, the building was completely rebuilt in 1924, per the Ogden City Council .

Additionally, several people were murdered in or near Union Station, according to Visit Ogden’s list of paranormal locations in the city. There was also a train crash at the station in 1944 that reported 48 fatalities.

Given the list of people who have died at the station, it’s unsurprising that the place is reportedly haunted. Visit Ogden says the ghost of a woman who died in the train crash has been reported roaming the upstairs, and that several other spirits have appeared to move objects and otherwise haunt visitors.

You can visit the station for free during regular operating hours or take a ghost tour around Ogden to learn more about its haunted history.

2. Rio Grande Depot, Salt Lake City

Utah has another haunted railroad station south of Ogden in Salt Lake City. The Rio Grande Depot was built in 1910 but was no longer used as a train station after Amtrak relocated its trains to a different hub in Salt Lake, per Utah Humanities .

A ghost known as the “Purple Lady” reportedly haunts the station, per KSL . According to local legend, she lost her engagement ring on the tracks and was hit and killed by a train after she went to retrieve it.

Several employees of the Rio Grande Café, which operated out of the station until 2020, told KSL they had witnessed inexplicable activities at the depot that they attributed to the Purple Lady. These included flickering lights, water problems, objects moving overnight and even sounds and sightings of the lady herself.

The depot is currently closed to the public, per the Utah Department of Cultural & Community Engagement , but can be admired from the outside.

  • Ghost investigation: Does the Purple Lady haunt Salt Lake’s Rio Grande?

3. Rock Canyon, Provo

Rock Canyon is another location with a slew of recorded deaths. In 1850, settlers new to the Provo area killed dozens of members of the local Timpanogos tribe after a disagreement, per Intermountain Histories . While it is now a popular location for hikers and rock climbers, several climbers have met their demise after falling in the canyon, ABC4 reports.

Hikers have reported seeing multiple ghosts in the canyon, including a hiker, a small child and the wife of the Timpanogos tribe’s chief, per ABC4. Only in Your State additionally reports that visitors have heard the sounds of drums beating and distant screams.

4. Old Tooele Hospital, Tooele

The original Tooele Hospital was built in 1873 as a residence and was repurposed as a senior citizens home in 1913 before becoming a hospital. When the current Tooele Hospital was built in 1953, the building reverted to a nursing home. Half of the building is now under new ownership and operates as Asylum 49, a haunted house.

Hundreds of people have died there, which is understandable given the building’s history as a hospital and nursing home. Reports of the deceased returning to haunt the building have circulated for years, per ABC4 .

In 2011, the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” team visited the building to investigate claims that several members of the staff had seen three ghosts: a man in black, a woman in white and a small child. 

You can go through the Asylum 49 haunted house during regular operating hours in the fall, or you can attend one of their special ghost hunts to explore the building on select nights.

5. Golden Spike National Historic Site, Corinne

This is the location where the Central Pacific and Union Pacific tracks connected on May 10, 1869, to create the first direct train route from the West to East coasts, per the National Park Service . Before the final golden spike was hammered into the track, this area was home to a bustling camp of railroad workers.

Since the spike completed the railroad, the area has become a national historical site, but it is also home to some supernatural activity, as the Deseret News reported in 1995 . One visitor reported a steam locomotive speeding along the now-deconstructed tracks and hearing the disembodied voices of the laborers who had worked there. 

The Golden Spike National Historic Site and visitor center is open five days a week if you’d like to explore the area for yourself.

Most Haunted Places in Utah

When you think about Utah, some of the things that probably spring to mind might be the large Mormon community, skiing and national parks that are full of oddly shaped rock formations. However, Utah is also full of paranormal phenomena.

Let’s take a look at ten of the most haunted places in Utah:

McCune Mansion, Salt Lake City

McCune Mansion, Salt Lake City

McCune Mansion was built in 1901 and took around 3 years and $1 million to build. These days it is used as a venue for weddings and lots of other types of celebrations.

There are said to be two different apparitions that are haunting the building – a man in a black cape and a little girl of about 10 years of age who particularly enjoys when there are weddings taking place.

There is a picture of the girl hanging in the Mansion, so she was obviously a former resident. She is often spotted at weddings where she can be seen dancing and giggling. On the other hand, the man is usually seen around Christmas time.

Mountain Meadows Massacre, Veyo

Mountain Meadows Massacre, Veyo

According to records, the Mountain Meadows Massacre happened back in 1857 when a group of settlers were brutally murdered by Mormon Militia.

Somewhere between 100 and 140 people perished during the massacre. It is now said to be one of the most haunted areas in Utah.

Visitors tell tales of hearing the cries of the victims being carried on the wind and say that they feel a terrible wave of sadness overcoming them.

Rock Canyon, Provo

Rock Canyon, Provo

Rock Canyon in Provo is a popular climbing spot, but only for experienced climbers.

There have been a number of deaths due to climbers losing their grip on the steep rock face and plummeting into the canyon below. These tragic deaths have contributed to the negative energy in the area and the surrounding campgrounds are believed to be haunted.

The most common sighting is of a man standing on one of the high rocky ledges. He is said to stare down at the living before running straight towards them at an impossible angle down the steep rock face.

He vanishes in to thin air just before he is about to make contact with the ground.

Devereaux Mansion, Salt Lake City

Devereaux Mansion, Salt Lake City

The oldest part of the Devereaux Mansion dates back to 1857 when it was built by William C Stanes, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who traveled to Salt Lake City from England with the first pioneer groups.

It changed hands several times over the next few years and was almost destroyed by fire in 1979. Since then it has been renovated and opened as a restaurant and wedding venue. It is also said to be incredibly haunted.

There are at least two ghosts who call the Devereaux Mansion home. The first is a young girl who has a particular affinity for playing tricks on the kitchen staff. She is also known to wave at people at night.

The second spirit is thought to be either the former lady of the house or a head housekeeper. In contrast to the cheerful little girl, she is said to be far more aggressive towards visitors although it is believed that she believes she is simply protecting the mansion from misuse!

Old Tooele Hospital, Tooele

Old Tooele Hospital, Tooele

In 1873, Tooele Hospital was built as a family home for Samuel F Lee. However, by 1913 it hand been turned into a home for the elderly. These days it is unique in that half of the property is still a nursing home and the other half is a haunted attraction.

It is also one of the most haunted places in Utah. Lots of people have described the ghost of a little girl named Jessica who will follow them around while others comment on a former patient named Wes.

There are also reports of the original owner Samuel F Lee haunting the building.

There is also a much darker and more malevolent force in the abandoned section of the hospital and no-one is keen to go there on their own.

Mercur Cemetery, Tooele

Mercur Cemetery, Tooele

Old cemetery’s are pretty creepy at the best of times, but when there are reports of paranormal activity in the area it gets that little bit more terrifying. This is the case with Mercur Cemetery in Tooele, Utah which is said to be one of the most haunted cemeteries in Utah.

It has been said that a phantom horseman gallops across the cemetery at night and many visitors report hearing phantom footsteps and seeing shadowy figures.

Interestingly, it seems like most of the spirits haunting the cemetery are actually children, but it is not clear why.

Moon Lake, High Uintas

Moon Lake, High Uintas

At first glance, Moon Lake is a beautiful and placid location. It is no surprise that it is a popular campsite. However, appearances can be deceptive and this spot is actually one of the most haunted places in the state.

Those who camp there often find themselves encountering the ghost of a young girl who has clearly been the victim of drowning in the lake.

She appears dripping wet and her skin is bloated and tinged with blue. It seems that she does not fully understand that she has passed and is looking for her family.

Moon Lake is also said to be home to a water dwelling cryptid that looks like a giant serpent.

Southern Utah University, Cedar City

Southern Utah University, Cedar City

Southern Utah University is allegedly very haunted and there have been plenty of tales of the paranormal from students and faculty members alike.

One of the most common occurrences is a ghostly pianist who regularly plays ‘Deep Purple’ in Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery. Apparently she had been due to play the song at junior prom, but died before she had the chance.

This is not the only musical spirit that is said to haunt the Southern Utah University campus. In Old Main there is said to be a specter named Virginia who plays unnerving flute music.

She has also been blamed for setting the building on fire in 1948 on the fiftieth anniversary of her death.

She was apparently found brutally murdered and draped over a large piece of sandstone.

That same rock was apparently used in the building which is why she is tied to the building making it one of the most haunted buildings in Utah.

Rio Grande Depot, Salt Lake City

Rio Grande Depot, Salt Lake City

The Rio Grande Depot is said to be haunted by a spirit known as ‘The Purple Lady’. It is believed that she died when she chased down an engagement ring which was thrown into the path of a train.

It is said that she haunts the ladies restrooms although she is often spotted in other spots around the depot.

The Purple Lady is not alone in haunting the Rio Grande Depot, there is also a man haunting the building.

It is said that he died during construction of the depot’s tunnel. He is now said to haunt the basement.

Bigelow Hotel & Residencies, Ogden

Ben Lomond Hotel, Ogden

Formerly the The Ben Lomond Hotel, the Bigelow Hotel & Residencies was originally a boarding house and during the Prohibition Era a tunnel was built to smuggle alcohol.

It became a popular haunt among prostitutes and unscrupulous individuals. These days it is haunted by a number of spirits including those of a mother and son.

In Room 1102 a lady drowned in the bathtub on her wedding night. Now guests who stay in the room report the water in the tub running by itself and some have even described being pushed under the water by unseen hands.

However, there is more to the story. After the bride died, her son came to the hotel to collect her belongings and stayed in the room next door.

He was overcome with sadness and he took his own life. Now he is said to be haunting the hotel.

She likes to photobomb people’s pictures, too. When she gets mad, she throws things on the ground. There have been reports of doors closing by themselves and people noticing strange cold spots.

3. The Rio Grande Depot

The Rio Grande Depot in Salt Lake City is a great place for ghost hunters searching for the paranormal. There are many reports of ghostly encounters, like shadowy figures approaching security guards only to suddenly disappear and late-night footsteps on the mezzanine. The ghost most encountered is “the Purple Lady.” The story goes that her fiance decided to end things and threw the engagement ring onto the tracks. She met her untimely end when a train hit her while she was chasing the engagement ring. Now, she’s a regular visitor at the depot, often hanging out in the ladies’ restrooms.

In Harold B. Lee Library, people say the reading room is haunted. There are reports of ghostly moans being heard. The room temperature is either freezing cold or super hot all the time. A strange chair appeared in the Harp Room, and the staff didn’t know where it came from. This chair is now called the “Ghost Chair,” and it’s still a mystery.

5. Mountain Meadows Massacre

The Mountain Meadows Massacre happened in 1857. A group of settlers, mostly from Arkansas and Missouri, were traveling to California and stopped in Utah. The Morman Militia feared the United States was sending troops to Utah. Amid all the gossip, misunderstandings, strong beliefs, and shared anxiety, the tragic Mountain Meadows massacre unfolded. Of the 140 people on the emigrant train, only 18 children managed to survive. It is now said to be one of the most haunted areas in Utah. Visitors hear the cries of the victims and say that they feel a terrible wave of sadness in the area. There are also sightings of mysterious floating heads.

6. Old Tooele Hospital

Back in 1873, Tooele Hospital was just a family home for Samuel F. Lee. But by 1913, it had transformed into a place for elderly folks. Nowadays, it’s pretty unique because half of it is still a nursing home, while the other half is a haunted house called Asylum 49.

The nurses on staff claim residents have seen three different ghosts: a nurse in white, a man in black, and a small child. While walking down a hallway, one resident felt somebody walking behind them. When they turned around to look, they saw a black figure crawling up onto the ceiling. People talk about a ghostly little girl named Jessica who likes to tag along with visitors. Then, there’s the mention of a guy named Wes, a former patient, who still hangs out in the common area.

7. Mercur Cemetery

There’s just something creepy about old cemeteries, and Mercur Cemetery is no exception. Visitors to the cemetery have caught sight of shadowy figures and ghostly footsteps, heard voices, and felt the hair stick up on the back of their necks. For an unknown reason, most of these ghosts are kids. These sightings have made Mercur Cemetery one of the most haunted in the state.

8. Bigelow Hotel & Residencies

The Bigelow Hotel & Residencies in Ogden, once known as the Ben Lomond Hotel, has quite a history. Originally, it was a boarding house, but during the Prohibition Era, they dug a secret tunnel to sneak in alcohol. It became a hangout for folks like prostitutes and shady types. Today, it’s home to some ghostly visitors, including a mother and her son.

In Room 1102, a tragic event happened. A lady drowned in the bathtub on her wedding night. Now, guests who stay in that room tell stories of the water in the tub turning on by itself, and some even say they felt invisible hands pushing them underwater. Sadly, there’s more to this story. After the bride passed away, her son came to collect her things and stayed in the room next door. Overwhelmed with sorrow, he ended his own life, too. Now, it’s said his spirit lingers in the hotel, haunting its halls.

9. Rock Canyon

Rock Canyon in Provo is a well-loved climbing spot, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Only experienced climbers dare to scale its steep walls. Sadly, there have been accidents, with climbers losing their grip and falling into the canyon. This sorrowful history has left a lingering sense of unease in the area, and the nearby campgrounds have earned a reputation for being haunted. One sighting is of a man standing on the edge of the cliff. It is said that he stares down the cliff at people and then runs straight down the cliff face, disappearing right before he hits the ground.

10. Moon Lake

Moon Lake in High Uintas may seem like a serene and lovely spot. Looks can be deceiving, though. This place happens to be one of the most haunted places in Utah. Campers often share stories of an eerie encounter with the ghost of a young girl. It’s clear she met a watery end in the lake. She appears all dripping wet, with bloated, bluish skin. She doesn’t quite realize she’s moved on and is searching for her family. Moon Lake is also said to be the home of a water-dwelling cryptid, a colossal serpent-like creature lurking beneath the surface!

11. Southern Utah University

Southern Utah University is said to be a hotbed of paranormal activity, with teachers and students reporting spooky stories. The most famous ghost is Virginia Loomis. She’s been haunting the Old Main building since it was built in 1898. Local legend says her body was found lying on a large boulder, soaked in her blood. The boulder was later used to make bricks to build Old Main, which caused her ghost to become trapped in the building.

Old Main’s second ghost belongs to a 1930s high school student who would practice her favorite song, Deep Purple , on the third-floor piano. Unfortunately, one day she was found dead sitting on the piano bench mid-way through the song. After her strange death, many people say they have heard music coming from the top floor of the building.

Dr. John Laurence Seymour, another SUU’s ghostly resident, can be found in the library’s special collections section. He was a famous American composer and playwright and worked as a librarian at SUU for 16 years before he passed away in 1986. Many people think he loved the campus and its students so much that he didn’t want to leave, even after he died.

12. Skinwalker Ranch and Blind Frog Ranch

Details of UFOs, orbs, and Bigfoot-like creatures have been spotted at these two ranches. The ranches have unexplained magnetic fields, reports of people vanishing, and strange cattle mutilations. Some people believe this area is some kind of portal or wormhole to another dimension.

Strange happenings occur so frequently that several popular TV shows like History’s The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch and Discovery’s M ystery at Blind Frog Ranch documented their strangeness. The closeness of the ranches makes for an easy road trip to see both. While Skinwalker Ranch remains private land, visitors can book an interactive tour of the  Blind Frog Ranch .

13. The Man in the Yellow Slicker

In Park City, there’s a notorious ghost, a mysterious figure cloaked in a yellow slicker with a shadowy, faceless visage. This eerie presence is said to roam the hills and mines near the town, and he’s often seen as an omen of impending doom. In fact, locals reported sightings of the man in the yellow slicker just before a tragic mine explosion claimed the lives of 34 miners. Some folks view this ghostly figure as a guardian angel, a spectral protector warning people of impending danger. Others paint a darker picture, suggesting he’s the vengeful spirit of a miner who met a gruesome end, his body tossed down a deep, 600-foot mine shaft.

According to tales from Park City Ghost Tours , there’s a twist in the story. They mention a man who came to Park City in pursuit of mining riches. On his death certificate, he’s listed as a “friendly stranger.” Like many miners, he donned a yellow slicker to fend off the damp chill. He was found dead in a mine shaft, his head crushed. The official cause of death was attributed to a mine collapse. On the tour, you’ll hear the creepy story of Marty Howard, a local policeman, who encountered the man in the yellow slicker at the top of Main Street in Daily Canyon. One thing’s for sure—there’s something otherworldly near the mines of Park City.

14. Latuda Ghost Town

Latuda has some seriously eerie stories to tell. Back in 1914, a man named Frank Latuda started it all, setting up a coal mine with fancy new tech. By 1923, about 300-400 folks called this town home. In 1927, things took a grim turn. Two huge avalanches came crashing down, wiping out houses and taking lives.

After the tragedy, the miners rebuilt, and the town chugged along until the 1950s. Slowly but surely, folks started moving away as the coal mine’s production dropped. Now, Latuda is mostly abandoned, but remnants of the mine are still standing. Local legends say a ghost called the “White Lady of Latuda” roams here. Legend has it that she was a miner’s widow who lost her husband in the 1927 avalanches and later took her own life. Even if you don’t spot the White Lady, the place gives you a seriously eerie vibe. Abandoned ghost towns have a way of doing that.

15. The Great Saltair

The Great Saltair is an old music venue that is reported to be haunted by very hostile ghosts. The most reported ghost sighting is Saltair Sally, a woman found dead on the property, who seems to be violent and causes physical pain to visitors. People also report hearing voices and seeing ghostly figures roaming about. “ The Great Saltair Curse ” is an episode filmed by Ghost Adventures that claims the historic building and land are haunted by hostile spirits.

16. This is the Place Heritage Park

This historic park was once a former Brigham Young settlement that dated back to 1844. Brigham Young was believed to haunt his former home until it was moved to a new location. The ghost of Brigham Young’s 19th wife, Anne Eliza Webb Young, is said to haunt the house now. Visitors have also reported hearing children’s voices and a sighting of the widow of martyred Mormon leader Hyrum Smith, Mary Fielding Smith. She’s often seen outside her home, wagging her finger, upset that her house was put there facing the wrong way.

17. Leslie’s Family Tree Restaurant

Leslie’s Family Tree Restaurant in Utah County has been featured on several television shows because of its abundance of paranormal activity. The building has stood for over 100 years, serving as a bomb shelter, gambling hall, and bar before becoming a kitchen and storage facility.

Ghost hunters believe that two male spirits haunt the restaurant, victims of a car crash nearby. There’s also a lady wearing a blue nightgown and a little boy who likes to follow people around. The spirit of a local drunk hangs out at the bar drinking. They’ve also experienced evidence of poltergeists, like chairs being moved and stacked and doors opening and closing themselves.
