    1. Accidentally put the discription of my visit u set the wrong fort. This place is definitely haunted. I was fortunate enough to spend the night here two nights in a row. Had a lot of strange things happen from glowing orbs the followed me and my group to disembodied male voices. Especially in the barracks. We didn’t have any electricity while we were there and there was a lot of people so maybe it was just all a trick of my mind but I would definitely go back. Never once was it threatening or scary just really cool!

    2. Hey there. I’m an amature paranormal enthusiast and stopped in for a quick investigation/tour in late July. Here is a “lightning looking” blast of energy moving towards me after receiving EMF spikes and cold spots

    3. It’s weird to see all these reports. I love ghost stories, but I’ve been coming here since 2007 and have never felt anything. The only “cold spot” is when you go to the parts that are underground.
