Devil's Hole State Park - Cave of the Evil Spirit

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Devil's Hole State Park - Cave of the Evil Spirit

Devil’s Hole State Park in Niagara Falls is said to have ghosts who are left over from its tragic past. The Devil’s Hole itself is a stone staircase, a tricky climb down to the Niagara River, and it could be dangerous. Near the bottom is the Cave of the Evil Spirit, and anyone who enters here is said to be cursed by tragedy and misfortune. The legend came about in 1763 when a British wagon train came through and was attacked by 500 Senecas, known as the Devil’s Hole Massacre. Around 80 bodies of British soldiers were found floating in the Niagara River as a result of the battle. It was the Senecas who first warned the British about the Cave of the Evil Spirit.

  1. This place is definitely haunted. My cousin and I went to this cave and had a couple of beers.We then heard a voice say,” How ’bout a sip of dat beer for two fiddy?” Then we heard it again, it said,” How ’bout a sip of dat beer for two fiddy?” I thought my cousin was saying that and I asked him to be quiet! Then the voice said,” you be quiet you fool, I aksed you for a sip of dat beer and I finna give you two fiddy!” I then asked,” Who are you?” The voice said,”Slappy is my name, drinking beer is my game, if you won’t share, den its because I put you to shame.” My cousin and I started laughing. The voice then said,” Don’t you laugh at me you fool, jive, turkey!” I put the extra beer on a rock, and then I heard the clinging of loose change. On the the rock was tree fiddy in change. The beer was gone and when my cousin and I left, we heard Slappy burp,then fart and he done left, never to be heard from again. We then left to get some more beer, trying to understand what the hell just happened. Come and check this out, ask for Slappy.

  2. Today my girlfriend and myself went hiking at devils hole state park. We were venturing and came upon two caves in the area. Attached is a picture taken of o e of the caves with what looks like a greenish blue “light glare” with what also looks like a few orbs appearing in the glare. None of the other pictures I took in that few second interval had the anomoly.

  3. It took awhile to find the cave itself but we were surprised once we found it. The cave is huge and goes up for a long distance. We caught a lot of orbs in the cave.
