    1. Myself and a few friends of mine decided to investigate the stories of this place on several occasions. There are many different ones including the one about the baby of whoms mother will come after you if you tell her you have her baby. To see this for ourselves we went. We turned out the lights and got out of the car said ” bitch I got your baby” 3 times. Stood there silently awaiting the outcome. Feeling that it was a waste of time we started laughing and joking about it but was short lived because moments later out of the darkness we all saw a white light coming towards us. We hurried to get back in the car. We wanted nothing more than to leave but when I tried to crank the car it wouldn’t start. We started apologizing and praying for God to get us

      • I went last night to Bear Creek Swamp with my brother and some friends and turned the car and lights and said lady lady i have your baby and moments later my door opened, something grasped my ankles i looked down and nothing was there. Definitely worth the trip.

    2. Cool story, we would hear large splashing noises from the water and giant yellow eyes in the trees leading us to believe it was a great horned owl, one time two VERY country looking gentlemen pulled up in an old truck, they stopped, bullshitted with us for a minute and claimed they owned the property and to clean up when we were done, they drove off and we decided it best to leave, well they ended up circling around and getting behind us on the long dirt road, driven all up on our ass and flashen the high beams, then they tapered off. didn’t really go back after that this was in 98 or 99.

    3. I grew up in Prattville and heard all kinds of rumors about bear creek i use to party on that road because i thought it was a joke but that all changed one night when everyone left except for my friend and i that rode with me it was at 3:00 am we stopped at the water drain i got out and told him to ride to the end and turn around then go to the other end and come back to get me i stood there with no light in the dark i saw him drive to then end then turn around and rode by wile i was waiting on my friend to come back i heard loud screaming that sounded like a woman i heard a lot of movement close by i turned and looked towards the road i saw red eyes stairing at me they started to get closer towards me then it disapeared as my friend pulled back up

      • At one point in the road my friends and I saw and old man looking at us from behind the trees. Freaked us the hell out because where he was made no sense and it was a very wet and marshy spot due to some recent rain.

    4. I have been in this a few times. One time my car got stuck on the side when we where helping a fellow passerby after he left we discovered our car was stuck. Well as the men were getting the car off the side of the road, I kept on hearing weird things (it was dark now) and seeing thing. I told my friends and they started telling me yes that’s why we are trying to hurry and leave. I had no idea about the legends.
