  1. I literally come here ALL the time. I’d say several times a week for the past 3 years. I’ve been with my kids all over the property and have never seen any paranormal activity. This is honestly one of the most peaceful parks I’ve ever been to.

  2. My husband and I joined a group there on Halloween.. my husband was a ghost skeptic, even though we live in a very haunted house. Both of us felt many “cold” spots, touches, breaths on our neck. My husband’s ponytail was tugged and he felt a hand on his back! Worth a visit!!
