  1. This place might actually be haunted, I never knew about this until now but I did know something about the lake didn’t quite sit right with me. I went out fishing with my dad a while back early one morning and it was all too still. No birds, no dogs, no sound really except our bobbers hitting the water. Now I haven’t heard anything or seen anything but I think I’m gunna head back out one night and see if I do. I almost believe it.

    This place is really haunted while me and my friend was swimming in the lake she screamed and she said she felt someone grab her leg underwater a couple minutes later i felt someone grab my leg under water there was noone there only me and her…i did research on it and turns out this lake is haunted.

  3. I’ve lived next to Lake Tholocco since 1987 and I’ve never heard of it being haunted. The lake was drained twice when the dam busted and no evidence of Civil War relics or bodies were ever found. The voices and noises you may hear are most likely actual soldiers doing their SERE training (Google it). Now that I’ve said that, the lake is kind of creepy looking at one end that no one ever goes into, but only because of the protruding tree stumps sticking up prevents boats from going back there. The lake is full of fish, snakes and a resident gator so if you swim in there you’re pretty much going to have something swim up against you. I’ve put my wave runner in there but I’m not going to swim in it.
