  1. Late at night at or around midnight on certain nights you can hear what sounds like traditional drums echoing around the area

  2. This lake is cursed, there have been many deaths and not just your average person. Many have gone to thar lake and never left, including a scuba instructor and an mma fighter.

  3. When I was walking back to our boat from the bathrooms. I felt a presence and then heard foot steps crunching in the desert next to me. Then a breath next to my ear!! I was totally freaked out!

  4. I was gathering some firewood at a makeshift campsite off the beaten path, and no effing joke, I turn around to bring the wood back to the firepit and there’s a young adult native girl standing right in front of me. She almost immediately blinked out of existence, and I was only mildly startled because I didn’t have much time to react. I walked back to the firepit and eventually told my girlfriend what happened. She said she was waiting for me to say something because she had been seeing natives too. Both times we went out there, my truck got a flat tire right at the same spot, which led to us choosing this same random campsite both times. We also almost got stuck in a sea of mud near the shoreline that I accidentally drove into one of the nights. Luckily I floored it and never did get stuck, but after all the creepy things we’ve seen out there, I’m still very thankful to this day we got out of it. The flat tires, on the other hand, were still pretty bizarre. The other night we stayed out there, there were some mules that surrounded the campsite. They were super friendly, and I almost feel like they kept the apparitions away. I almost went out there again by myself to see if I could see them again, because I was a new-agey idiot back then. I’m super glad I didn’t now. But if your intention is to see them, my advice to you would be to bring at least & only one friend, preferably a new-agey idiot too. All the other times I’ve been out there we’ve had tons of friends along, and nothing weird ever happened. Get out there during the daytime too. It’s best not to be driving around at night out there. Something always goes wrong.
