RIVERFRONT DRIVE., DOWNTOWN BEND

On the 100 block of NW Riverfront Drive, Tucked away around the corner from Miller's Landing Park, this haunted house is easy to miss.

DANIEL DUKE WAY, NORTHEAST BEND >>>

Covered top to bottom in cob webs and littered with homemade coffins and tombstones, this house on Daniel Duke Way has a reputation for going all out for Halloween—11 years strong. Haunted house creator Darren Hill says it's not finished yet—he still has to add strobe lights and a spooky soundscape. Hill's first passion is decorating for Christmas; every year he covers his home with 60,000 to 80,000 lights. You can also find his decoration handy work in downtown Bend during the holidays.

BILYEU WAY, NORTHEAST BEND  V V V

Susan Neal, the owner of this haunted abode, adds to her skeleton crew each year. She says her eastside neighborhood gets a lot of trick or treaters—and this year she's giving out full-size candy bars.

If you're looking for more of a scare and something a little more interactive, the ScareGrounds Haunted Houses are back for another year. Featuring three haunts with different themes; "Attack of the Zombies," "Hillbilly Hell" and "Distortions – CarnEVIL"—you're sure to find something that scares you in the dark. CarnEVIL features a 3D visual experience painted by local artist Mike Yruegas—it'll keep you questioning what is real and what is not. Recommended for ages 12 and older.
