New Covington Cemetery - (9189 Highway 278 E, Covington, GA) This was the cemetery used for the scenes where Tommy digs up Jason's grave. The wrought iron gates were removed at some point, but it is still a normal functioning cemetery.

This is a shot from when the caretaker discovers Jason's grave has been disturbed, and goes to cover up the evidence. The headstone used for 'Jason Voorhees' was only a prop, of course.

Here is another shot from when Tommy returns to the graveyard and is chased by the police.



The Porter Memorial Library - (Monticello Street, Covington, GA) This building used to be a library, but is no longer in use. The Covington area was popular in the 1970's and 80's as a film location for television and movies set in the South. Some examples include the television shows In the Heat of the Night and The Dukes of Hazard, and the movies Little Darlings and Miss Evers Boys.

This is a shot from when Tommy first goes into the Sheriff's office to tell them that Jason is alive. You can see the area on the door where they pasted the "Forest Green County Sheriff Dept" sign.

This shot shows the sheriff's department doors as Megan is about to leave. There was never a shot of the top of the building because it would have revealed the library sign.

In this shot of Megan and Tommy escaping, you can see the red handrail that is still there.

When Megan helps Tommy bust out of jail, they speed away from the Sheriff's Department down this street. They are on Monticello Road, in the heart of Covington, and you can see the historical courthouse building in the background.

Thanks to Jacob Burnell for sending in some shots of the building used where Tommy was in the telephone booth. The booth was a prop setup for the movie, as well as the sign Karlov's General Store. This building is located in Starsville, Georgia, just off Hwy. 213 outside of Covington.



Hard Labor Creek State Park - (2 miles North of Rutledge, GA) This beautiful park is mostly a large golf course, but it does have two group camps on it, one of them being Camp Daniel Morgan. It was at this camp that most of the cabin scenes were filmed, as well as all of the lake scenes. This is a functioning group camp, so please ask permission from the park office before visiting the site.

When Bong Tokin' Chuckles first showed up to the camp area, it was closed for the winter. But that didn't stop him from getting a few snapshots! The types of trees in this area are very recognizable.

Jason Lives Screenshot Lake, 1999

The opening shot of the movie showed fog rolling across a lake, and this shot was taken in the same location near Camp Daniel Morgan.

The boat dock that was used in the movie is still functioning and in place for the camp.

Here is a shot of how the cabins are grouped. You can tell that they have all been painted grey.

Here is another shot of the cabins at the camp, but instead of Megan's camaro, you can now see Bong Tokin' Chuckles black one!

This is the main sleeping building for the campers, and was used as the 'boy's cabin' in the film.

A smaller cabin, that is similar to the one used as the counselor's sleeping cabin where Paula was.
