Driving Directions: Map to Blairstown, NJ


Blairstown is a small town West of Newton, NJ, located in the Northwestern corner of the state, close to the Pennsylvania border. Sean Cunningham chose this location because it provided the perfect small town setting for the events of the fictional "Camp Crystal Lake" to take place.

The first shot of the movie after the opening sequence shows Annie crossing a small bridge as she walks into town. There have been some alterations to the bridge, but the basic structure is the same.

As Annie approaches the main street, she heads towards the Old Mill, which has an arched walkway underneath it. The archways can be seen at the building middle left, on the street corner.

Cork's Candle, Bath & Body - (26 Main St, Blairstown, NJ) The white building with the balcony is where the the store was where Annie went in to ask for directions to Camp Crystal Lake.

The Moravian Cemetery is close to Hope, NJ, and is actually not much closer to the campsite. This road is where Enos lets Annie out to walk the rest of the way to Camp Crystal Lake.

This is a shot of Millbrook Road in Hardwick Township, NJ. This is where Ned's truck appears at the beginning of the film, and this picture was taken very close to the NoBeBoSco Camp area. You can see the very tips of those same buildings in the background peeking over the trees.

This was the main building used by the counselors, the Van Dusen cabin. It has the fireplace and the kitchen, this is where they played Strip Monopoly, and also where Alice barricaded herself in after finding the bodies.

This is the little gravel path in front of the main cabin, seen most noticably when Officer Dorf checks up on the counselors. In the background you can see the lake, which is actually called Sand Pond.

The archery range is still in place, although it appears that several trees have been cleared away to make more room. The basic structure of the area has not changed, however.

This is another recognizable shot of when Mrs. Voorhees is watching the counselors swimming. You can see that the watchtower that was white is now painted brown, and the dock is stored on land while it is not in use. The brown building further back is where Ned thought he saw someone and went to inspect a noise...

This is the Mechanics building where the generator is kept, and it was used in the scene when Bill goes to find out why the power went out. It contains the actual electrical generator for the camp.
