Little Africa - Geigel Woods

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Little Africa - Geigel Woods

This site is said to be very active with spirits, in part because the old bridge was the site of two hangings. Car accidents have been caused by apparitions standing in the middle of the road. Also, at the old farm house, the husband is said to have killed the maid after she had an affair. It is also reported that a spirit named Michael haunts the area, and objects will fly through the air at times.

*Note* This 14-acre forested area is a public hunting spot, so there may be hunters and guns present. Take care.

  1. This place is scary! especially at night! I have never seen anything there but am from the area and have been there several times, every time you are there you feel like you are being watched and just off, the tress surrounding the dirt road make it even the more eery!

  2. I was exploring through the woods with my buddies. And it was just creepy and after we left I had a big scratch across my back but I never felt it…

  3. It is a very creepy place to go to, but I don’t think it’s haunted. Most of the time its just kids trying to scare the people that go there. I have a friend that lives by that place and he told me one time that he goes out there and hides on the side of the road and throws stuff across the road as people drive by.

  4. That place seriously scares me 2 friends and I were drove out there we were in my vehicle and sitting by the rocks looking up the hill and jus as we get ready to take off we hear a deep voice and a growl than we look in the hatch of my jeep to find my baseball bat in the air getting ready to hit one of us

  5. just went at 10:30pm friday night stayed till 12:18 trecked the woods pretty good found no bridge and no house heard some crazy sounds first one sounded like a women screaming for a split second, second sounded like i could have sworn dogs barking, third water from the river/creek splishing around.

  6. I have seen a girl in her late 20’s maybe early 30’s I use to live around there and have never heard about the flying Michael guy. But my girl friend and I were driving on an old gravel road out side of old Rolfe. It was night time and we seen a large flying thing come straight at our windshield. Haven’t been back there since. To afraid

  7. My friends and I decided to drive the pic Little Africa at night my junior year of high school. One of said friends’ dad owns a lot of the land that makes up Little Africa. I was driving, and probably speeding a little (adrenaline will do that to a person), and I could have sworn that I saw something flying alongside my car until we hit the highway again. I have not been back there at night since.

  8. I went there with some friends and we saw a ton of orbs, we also heard what sounded like a woman screaming. It was scary we haven’t been back since either.

  9. I live in algona and it’s the place to go for a good scare besides you feeling like your being a watch your hear weird noises like people talking and we all saw orbs in the trees. So then we all run out of the woods and get to our car which won’t start. And when it finally started the radio was acting crazy. The other time it was 90 degree weather and we all felt the chill in the back of our necks. And you swear you see things in the forest and when u get to the clearing there’s a weird clear g with rocks piled up. Some of this could be in our heads or just kids playing pranks but out of all the places we go to get a scare this pace freaks me out the most.

  10. Just spent some time out here and the gypsy cemetery. Little weird here. I dont know where the farm house is supposed to be. I found what looks like it may be a driveway but there was a no trespassing sign so I am assuming that if there is a farm house still it is on private property. Anyone? Got video of eyes staring at me. Pretty sure it was deer. They were pretty active just as the sun went down.
