In Louisiana, we like to venture out and explore. If you haven’t taken your family to Dark Woods Adventure Park in Natchitoches, you need to. According to Only In Your State, it’s a little gem that is tucked away in Louisiana that is family-owned giving Louisiana families something unique and fun.  If you are looking for a last-minute, quick adventure with the family before school starts, this will be perfect.

Dark Woods transforms into a spooky haunted house in the fall. Dark Woods Haunted Attraction has people from all over Louisiana (well, the brave ones) looking forward to this as it is one of the spookiest haunted houses in the state.

When Halloween is over, they begin preparing for the next big season and transform the park into a winter wonderland called “Christmas in the Park.” This will give your family Christmas memories to last a lifetime.

During the summer, Dark Woods Adventure Park has a new attraction that is very unique. The Dark Woods; Lost Treasure Mine gives you an opportunity to get adventurous and hunt for raw gemstones and fossils from all around the world. You'll find things like crystals, gemstones, shark's teeth, and fossils from around the world. They will start you off with everything you will need to start your adventure and the best part of the whole experience is that you get to take home whatever you find on your mining adventure.

Packages start at just $7.95 and admission is free. For more information, check out the Dark Woods Adventure Park website and also follow them on Facebook. It's located just off I-49 in historic Natchitoches.
