    Cemeteries are generally places of mourning and reverence, but some of them are quite notorious for having a life — or an afterlife — of their own. I explored some of the creepiest cemeteries West Michigan has to offer, and even during the day things seemed pretty eerie. Enjoy this visual tour of these places as they were well lit and “normal,” and visit them in the dark (with permission, of course) at your own risk!

    Nunica Cemetery

    Known as being one of the most haunted places in Michigan, Nunica Cemetery is a hot spot for any soul looking to be scared. Not only are there many unusual headstones, but floating lights, ghosts banging on the shack, and figures appearing and disappearing are all regular occurrences. Just ask any local — they can all tell you about the stories they have heard, or even experienced, in this cemetery.

    Mouth Cemetery

    Headstones are broken, fences are torn and falling down, and overgrowth swallows the cemetery whole. Mouth Cemetery, located in Montague, is by far the scariest cemetery in West Michigan. More ghost stories come from this cemetery than all other cemeteries in the area combined. Easily known to local ghost enthusiasts as being highly active and thriving place for the creepy. With only one streetlight dimly lighting the dirt road, you will have to walk through this terrifying cemetery in the pitch black. After a visit here, just the thought of a cemetery will be enough to make you shiver.

    Oakhurst Cemetery

    Located in Whitehall, the eerie presence of being in Oakhurst Cemetery after dark will give you chills. The cemetery is along a relatively busy road, so the cemetery’s eerie vibe dies down during the day, but soon fades with the sun.

    Pine Hill Cemetery

    In the small village of Fruitport you can find Pine Hill Cemetery. This small cemetery has generated a lot of scary stories and experiences among the locals, but being such a small town the stories don’t usually go far. Don’t let that fool you — this site is less well-known, but that does not make it any less creepy and worth visiting!
