  1. Dump Road-Old Chief Ladiga Trail. I’ve experienced “shadow people” darting from left to right on the road, near the gated area. Several friends that we with me experienced the same.

  2. My moms uncle told her of people walking in old fashioned clothing up there. I used to party up there bout 15yrs ago a lot but never saw anything weird.

  3. so one day i was with my couzin and we was walking and on the other side of the road their was a native american women and she was wearing old raggedy clothing and she was crying we heard a scream behind us looked back their was nobody and then we looked where we saw the women and she was gone.

  4. Yall no where big momas beach is? 2nd bridge in vigo.. A few years ago me and a buddy was sitting in our car by the bridge at night. I saw like a tribe of indians some walking some on back… Scare dafuaq otta me lol

  5. There is a old story about an old black man named TYAWAF. He is said to appear out of nowhere and is said to chase people when they are camping or sleeping. He is said to have a feather in his hand while he chases them.Legend has it that he was an indian who was abandoned from a tribe when he was a child. He used to play pranks on the elders of the tribe and they became fed up with him. They named him TYAWAF because he would chase everyone including the elders around the teepees and camp area. He always had feathers in both hands and tried to tickle their a$$ with the feathers. He became sick and died alone in the woods. There have been many reports of a young indian boy running around tickling people’s a$$e$$ with feathers while they are not expecting it. Go check this place out, but be aware that your a$$ make get tickled.

  6. I went to JSU in the late 90’s. My friends and I would go to Dump Rd. to shoot guns and drink. There were times we’d hear disembodied voices talking around us. We couldn’t understand what was being said. It was just a bunch of gibberish. We would yell out and they would stop. Onetime, we were leaving and just before reaching the gate at the bottom, we turned around to see three old fashioned dressed men walking up the road with sticks in their hands. They had their backs turned and going the opposite direction. They were there and then disappeared once we turned our heads back around. There were always abandoned vehicles on the side of the road. Dump Rd has always been sketchy and believed to had murdered bodies dumped there as well. It’s not the place you wanna be at night.

    • My parent’s house is right at the bottom on Louise when you come off the hill. Crazy shit up there. There is a canyon up there and when I was a kid we found a pentagram made of animal skulls and bones. Also found our first stash of old 1980’s porn mags up there.
