Families living in the base housing have reported objects moving and disappearing, hearing the sounds of stomping and footsteps, locked doors unlocking themselves, seeing shadowy figures, and sometimes there are reports of ghostly animals. It’s said that there have been many suicides within the base which could account for some of the activity.

  1. I just got stationed here at fort irwin about a year ago and we moved into our house. So everything was fine for a couple weeks then our animals would stare at a spot at the crawling located right under our bedroom corner. My animals continue to stare there and once my wife and I talked about it we started to see this shadow in that exact corner. So naturally we turned our light on to find nothing there. We turned it off and boom… it got even closer. Wesleepin the guest bedroom now and don’t see anything but every time we try and sleep in the master we see this shadowy man in the corner staring at us

  2. We moved to fort irwin about 3 years ago and at my old school there was a murder about 15 years ago in the girls bathroom and any time we go in there it gets cold and we will see a ghostly 11 year old girl in the bathroom screaming help help and then dead.
