    1. This place is most definitely “haunted”. Supposedly it used to be an Indian burial ground. One year it rained heavy in Natomas causing the far end to collapse reavealing human carcasses. I have a friend who witnessed the police activity in the area due to the scene.

      My actual account of paranormal activity at Sandy Cove happened shortly after 3:00 am. My friend Rob, wife Samantha, and I were there fishing. Well actually I was fishing they just like to enjoy the outdoors. I go to Sandy Cove often for fishing. sometimes night and sometimes day. This peticular night was a late one.

      Rob had told us the place was haunted and everything about the Indian burial ground. I am big in to the occult so I was interested and decided to pull out my cellphone and use a voice recorder to try EVPs as we walked down the trail going towards the part that had collapsed. As we walked Sammi was touch/pushed on her back shoulder. She also tripped on a tree root and I recorded giggling on my phone.

      During this little adventure I picked up on a few sounds through my cellphones voice recorder. Besides the giggling, there was also a constant, and low, drum and flute music. Reminiscent of Native American music. I caught a few voices. One male, 2 females(one of wich sounded like a child). We could not make out what they exactly said but for the first time trying to record EVP, this was an awsome experience.

      Now you all can believe my story or not, but between all the drownings that happen there and the Native American stuff… In my god honest opinion… Sandy Cove is MOST DEFINITELY “HAUNTED”
