Camp Titicut

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Camp Titicut

An old summertime campsite for Native Americans, complete with a burial ground, Camp Titicut is believed to be haunted by King Phillip, whose body reportedly was drawn and quartered here. The sound of leaves rustling, according to local tales, is his body parts trying to get back together. The area was a boys’ camp from the 1930s to 1950s, during which time a boy drowned in a pond. His ghost is said to be seen and heard in the nearby woods.

  1. I went here recently with a friend of mine. We went right before it was supposed to get dark and the trails were definitely creepy. We followed one of the trails until we got to a small clearing that overlooked the river. As soon as we stepped into this clearing we heard a strange sound. I think it may of just been a cat or coyote but it definitely spooked us.

  2. I’ve lived near this location since the early 80’s and the Paranormal team I work with has investigated here. We were able to interact with a native inhabitant of the land – thankfully our founder is Wampanoag and was able to translate the EVPs.

    A few “facts” in your write-up are wrong.
    Camp Titicut is actually in the town of Bridgewater, MA (location of the Hocomock Swamp and well known for the Bridgewater Triangle). Metacom (King Philip) was not killed here – he was killed in Rhode Island. Metacom’s brother lived on the banks of the river according to documented history. The site is the largest archaeological dig in Mass – this was painstakingly excavated in the 1950’s. Sadly, during the excavation, bones of deceased Native dwellers were dug up, carbon dated and never returned to their original resting place. A stone “statue” was erected in their memory at this location. When the ship building boom hit this area, the land was the site of a well-known ship builder. This was obviously at a time when the Taunton River was vast and deep and could handle large transport – today it is a shadow of its former self.
    This land was also the site of a children’s camp where one child reportedly drowned. You can still detect a few of the poured concrete foundation slabs and defunct wiring by the main fire pit area. The town of Bridgewater does allow camping at this location – you have to secure permission from the Park Dept. and receive permission from BFD to have a fire in one of the many fire pits.
    Walking trails that abutt the town line of Raynham lead to a grassy “field” (that we used to party at when I was in high school a million years ago before Rt. 495 was placed). The energy here is quite tranquil.
