NOTE: The cabin burned down in 1982. All that remains is part of the fireplace, pieces of the tin roof and some of the foundation. For anyone who may visit the cabin location I urge you not to take any of the remains, especially the fireplace stones because that would be disrespectful and just plain stupid.

Too Bad that there isnt anything left of this creepy Location:-(ReplyDelete
Maybe someone will buy the property when these folks die and rebuild the little cabin for nostalgia sake... AlDelete

AWESOME! I WANT TO SEE THE LOCATIONS SOOOOOOO BADDD!ReplyDelete
Definitely on my bucket list of things to do.ReplyDelete
I grew up just a few miles up the road from the cabin! I remember all the hype around town when they where shooting the movie! We used to go out and mess around in the cabin a year or two after they finished! Creepy fun!ReplyDelete
Wait you have actually been in the real evil dead cabin before it burnt down ??? Please tell us as much as you can remember. This is incredible !Delete

TJ , Geelong , Victoria , Australia.
Not much left to see. THis was a great location back in the day but everything is gone except for the fire place which I believe most bricks were stolen by fans. So let's move on to another movie we can actually see something.ReplyDelete
first of all, congratulation for you site and your work!
I'm italian guy and very fan of the movie "The Evil Dead".
I'm a fan of 80's movies and often I travel to search the original films location in Usa and Canada (if you want can you visit my page on facebook).
I was very impressed by your site on the Evil dead locations.
Because in late September I want to travel again in the USA, I'd like so much visit that locations.
can you tell me if it is easy to get in this place with the car and if it is possible to leave the car somewhere?
It is far to reach on foot (how much road)? is it also dangerous?
Is it free access or private property?
I'm wait your kindly answer
Thank you in advance
Hi Boris, thank you for the compliment. And to answer your questions, you can't drive a car down to the cabin location anymore because it's extremely overgrown. There are even full sized trees in the old path seen in the movie now. And there's not really anywhere close by to park either. The spot where the cabin used to be is about a quarter mile through the woods from the road. And it is private property so anyone visiting the location is doing so at their own risk. The owners of the property live directly across the road from the entrance to the trail that leads to where the cabin was so that makes it even more difficult. Hope this helps.Delete
planning on visiting this site in July 2019, (hopefully, the owners will give us permission). If so, how long is this path and is it visible as to which direction to walk? Great site .. I'm the BIGGEST Evil Dead fan and MUST see this site!!ReplyDelete
It's highly unlikely that you'd be granted permission to visit the site by the owners, as it's fairly well known that they're not in favor of fans visiting the location. And to be perfectly honest, there's a part of me that doesn't blame them due to so many visitors taking bricks from what's left of the chimney for souvenirs, which I think is pretty despicable. I feel like once it's gone, the lure and magic of the location won't be as strong. That being said, the start of the path is really overgrown but once you get through that the wooded portion is a clean short walk to where the cabin once was. You should have a pretty good idea of how far it is by looking at the mapped screenshot on my page. Good luck!Delete
I agree with everything that you said about fans taking bricks from the fireplace, It is really a shame. I have been to the location twice and never took anything for myself, just tried to soak in the atmosphere and did take a ton of pictures. You really have to visit in late fall when all the leaves are gone from the trees and gives you the feeling of the movie since it was filmed in November and December of 1979.ReplyDelete
wish i can go back to 80s...love that tint and treesReplyDelete
