  1. My boyfriend and I were camping in the forest one night and we saw large green and red balls of light. They were on the ground all around and varied in size but were on average about the size of a softball. The lights cast shadows. We never found any explanation for what they were.

  2. April, I believe you 100%. I had the same experience. A friend and I were on our way back from Auburn passing through that way one late night around 11:30pm. And two large red balls of light were behind the car as if it were chasing us. The balls seemed to be side by side as if a set of eyes. Very scary. Good to know I am not the only one who experienced that there.

  3. This place is definitely active in paranormal activity. My fiance and i were curious about it last night.So we decided to go check it out. It was around 8pm and right as we got there she had to pee. So we pulled into the road across from the ranger station. We got out and she did her business. As we were turning the car around she saw a large shadow figure move in the woodline next to us. We started leaving and I saw a very large shadow figure chasing the car as we were leaving. It is a very scary place at night.

  4. I haven’t experienced anything paranormal. But definitely creepy. Three years ago my ex boyfriend and some friends went driving through Tuskegee. We turned off wire Rd by the little white church, crossed the interstate, and took a left when the road dead ended, and then made another left on the loop road. We drove along that road and came upon a strange gathering of people standing in the road. They were all wearing black robes and standing in three lines of four people each facing the same direction we were driving. There was another robed person standing in front and facing them. They didn’t move at first and then all separated and turned to face us. We threw it in reverse and drove away. I don’t know what was going on. We rationalized it as a fraternity initiation to fall asleep that night. But it still creeps me out to think about. I don’t doubt the paranormal, the forest is frightening on its own. But be aware of the living things because they might be dangerous too.

  5. First of all you can’t just pass thru this area, you have to walk about 1/2 mile to get to the so called devils pit that has been filled in. The road to this area has huge boulders, dirt piles, logs all thru and across the road to devils pit. It has been that way for about 12 years. I know this cause I live in Notasulga and have herd the stories and rulers. As for it being haunted, I can say that I have never seen anything,but I know people who are convinced it is haunted. As for people being out there, the nearby town, Auburn, has fraternity that goes there,also the military from Fort Bending run manovers there. I know this because while I was in basic training at Ft. Benning we went there. I hope I have cleared up some confusion about devil’s pit.
