Legend has it that a young man and woman were killed here while camping in the forest. There is said to be a rock near the entrance that tells the story, but this may or may not be true. Some say the forest really got its name strictly because the donor of the land in 1946 was named Arthur W. Blood. Another grisly rumor says that Mr. Blood was a mentally unstable killer and hanged the bodies from trees throughout the forest. Reports of phantoms and screams have been noted coming from the woods.
