There are ghost stories of the Hotel at CLP.
Apparently, a young woman who was to be wed the next day, and was killed in a fire, has been said to roam the halls on the 3rd floor.
I was talking with several of the hotel workers a few years ago, and some said they had seen her and she was seen by many others.
I was wondering if there were any news articles or documents on any of this, of if any of you have noticed any distubances while at Hotel Conneaut.

I hate creepy hotels, so this is good to know if I'm ever in the area! Must avoid room 217 at all costs. ;)

Remindes me of the movie "the shining".

There are many stories of ghosts surrounding the Hotel Conneaut, the most well known is that of the young bride, Elizabeth, who supposedly died during the devasting fire of 1943 which destroyed almost half of the hotel. (They named the hotel's current restaurant "Elizabeth's" after the ghost!) There are supposedly other ghosts that haunt the hotel, including a small girl child (Angelina) who reportedly fell off the hotel's balcony while riding a tricycle many years ago. There's also reportedly ghost sightings throughout the park, including the Blue Streak. There's a homemade style booklet that the hotel sells to guests about the ghosts written by one of the staff members.
You can also read more about the 'ghosts' in these links:

I love this kind of stuff. Not saying I necessarily believe it, but it's still fun to think about. The kind of thing that adds to an old building's charm!

One of the times we stayed at the Hotel, i think it was the summer of '86, my wife and I were walking down the hallway and heard something funny.
We asked the lady at the desk what that sound was and she said: 'oh that's just the boiler used for heating."
I looked at her and said:"But you don't have heat or ac here."
"Well, that's what we're supposed to say," she quiped with a smile.
I never did find out what made the noise.
I love ghost stories.

But they have hot water so there must be some type of boiler in there.
I stayed there a couple of years ago and didn't encounter anything unusual. :(

You mean other than your reflection in the mirror? ;)

No, I don't use mirrors just for that reason.
The creepiest thing I ever encountered at Conneaut was watching you eat a hamburger. That was like something out of Gatorland!

What was more unnerving? The burger, or me eating the burger?
I was sure the most terrifying thing at Conneaut was your campground experience, so I'm proud and honored to top that with my dinner etiquette!

The campground was just full of idiots watching some stupid football game. Hamburgers are way more terrifying than that!

I heared about this a few years ago there was a special on ABC family about the scarest places in the world. Never been to that park though.
