Friday the 13th (1980)

While my heart belongs to the Halloween (1978) franchise, I do enjoy the first four Friday the 13th's.   The first one I ever saw was Friday the 13th Part III (1982) so I was a little confused when I saw the first one and Mrs. Voorhees was knocking off the camp counselors, who were pushing mid-twenties.  And she’s a force to be reckoned with.  She could hang a hundred and fifty pound man from a tree, had mad archery skills and was a fierce competitor for Alice as they lit the torch for Bitch Fight ’80.

Camp Nobebosco does give private tours of the camp on occasion.  Unfortunately I just missed the latest one but I hope to make it on one in the future.

Friday the 13th was filmed in Blairstown and Hope, NJ

Location: Annie Walks Through Town
Address: Main St, Blairstown, NJ

The location for the former gas station is two blocks away at 6 Bridge St.  You can see the house with the symmetrical windows in the background.

The interior of the luncheonette was filmed at 331 High St, Hope, NJ

Location: Jack, Marcie and Ned Drive

Enos' truck passes along this road...

You can see it again when Mrs. Voorhees picks up Annie.

This is just up the street from where Crazy Ralph warns Annie...

Location: Mrs. Voorhees Picks Up Annie

I believe this is where Annie tells Mrs. Voorhees they missed the road to Camp Crystal Lake, even though it is the road to the camp.

Location: Camp Crystal Lake
Address: 11 Sand Pond Rd, Hardwick, NJ     Camp Nobebosco

This is private property so this was as far as I could get.  Private tours are given so I hope to actually see the camp at some point.

Location: Crystal Lake Diner
Address: 53 State Route 94, Blairstown, NJ

No, their burgers are not made from camp counselors.
