The early scenes of Annie arriving in town were filmed on Main Street in Blairstown.  The building with the arches is the Old Mill.  For the past few years, the Blairstown Theater (which can be spotted in the film) has been screening the film on every Friday The 13th.  This includes a screening tomorrow.

The diner where Steve Christy eats his last meal is the Blairstown Diner, located on Route 94.  The diner is still open, and is supposedly very welcoming to fans of the movie.  The low budget horror movie Plasterhead (2006) also features a scene in the diner.

Camp Nobebosco served as the location of Camp Crystal Lake.  Camp Nobebosco is a boy scout camp that has been in operation since 1927.  The "lake" is Sand Pond.  The main cabin is actually within sight of the beach area, despite how it appears in the film.  The camp is also featured in an episode of the short lived MTV series Fear (2000) titled Camp Spirit Lake.  Despite being a "reality" series, the names of the camp and lake were changed and a long history of ghosts, murder, and satanism was fabricated.
