Manistee's Ghost Ship

Fridays & Saturdays Each October

One notable highlight of the Halloween season in Manistee is the popular Ghost Ship, otherwise known throughout the year as the S.S. City of Milwaukee, docked off Arthur Street in Manistee.

The Ghost Ship is held on Friday and Saturday nights throughout October. Thousands visit the Ghost Ship, which has been transformed into a ghoulish and frightening haunted attraction.

Navigating the steep stairways deep into the Ghost Ship is challenging enough- having people jump out of the darkness is definitely a scary and heart-stopping experience!
