  1. I am camping here now. I heard what I would call shrieks. I have never heard a sound like it before, but it sounds animal and not human. I googled what animal sounds like a screaming woman and I got the answer that a fox can sound like that. It didn’t sound scary at all.

  2. I actually lived in town across from the park! Can vouch. The park was also haunted as is the round house and site of the old high school. She can also be seen from the small play area next to the church.
