Description:
This site is located off of River Road (on your way to Mississinewa Resevoir). You will come to a "Y" in the road, where you will hang a right. You will soon after see a small cluster of pillars at the entrance of a gravel road. This site used to be swampy and marshy and there have been at least 8 decaying bodies found there (reported by Mississinewa staff). This site may be an old burial ground of some sort or battlefield, as to the thousands of spirits hiding within the trees. You will drive down this gravel road, and the trees will begin to swarm and intertwine above you. You will then come to a circle. Getting out the car, it is said that if you whistle, someone will begin whistling with you from deep in the forest. It is also said that a noise like a pig squeel and dogs barking can be heard like it is right next to you. And last but NOT least, you will hear screams like a small child is being tortured: supposedly it is a 7yearold girl named Stephanie. Also, traveling a long a path you will find a tree that has indents that appear to be much like deer antlers: HOWEVER, these are horizontal instead of vertical and have a place for an opposable thumb. Warning: DO NOT GO HERE, UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO BE TERRIFIED. (P.S. Do not "Ouija" here for the spirits do not like it.)

Ok Im from Kokomo, for people who don't know it is fairly close to Peru. My aunt and cousins love that ghost stuff so she usually drags me along to "haunted sites". I really thing all that feeling of being watched is all in your head. My cousins been multiple times and said all that's happened is she felt watched. My take is it isn't haunted. But the one thing of Paranormal I have experienced is a place called Gipsy grave. The cemetery is in Kokomo near the Northend think its called all bright cemetery. Anyways you see a blue orb/light above this headstone where a lantern used to be.

I go to these woods all the time. my family camps just down the road and we ride horses there day and night. I have never experienced any paranormal activity and to be honest, the whistleing from deep in the woods is usually my group out on night rides. but i can say that i really dont enjoy riding by myself out there because you get a really creeped out feelings and you hear things and feel like you're being watched or followed.

I have camped, played and ran through these woods for many years. I have never seen nor heard anything of a paranormal nature (other than groups of people out there trying to scare each other) You have to realize that these woods are close to houses and the river. Many nights my friends and I would hear people and scream or whistle back to them....the creepy laughter you think people can't do that? Come on now..sounds carry a long way through the woods when it's quiet, someone doesn't have to be right next to you for you to hear it. :-) Just my opinion but something to think about next time you start hearing things out there.

My friend and I went out there for the first time at least this was my firt. And I captured a quite a few orbs if you will one in particutar was right before we left and dl on to my cp and there was this flash of light or orb that appeared pretty bright near the steel gate to the left of it I believe. We were the only ones there that night! Im an adult so whatever was on the film is whatever it is.

I'll just make this short and sweet. Whoever goes back there, just be careful, watch eachothers backs, bring a weapon, and don't ever enter alone. I know people who have gotten lost and injured badly from things being thrown at them along that trail. The stories of this place being haunted are true.

I will add to this post bringing a weapon is asking for trouble, if its that dangerous then don't go. The paranormal filed does not need bad publicity of idiots carrying weapons.

I have been there a couple of times and the things i have experienced are quite odd. childern playing and singing ring around the rosie. the last time i was there was with a group of 5 other people, if you follow the paths up hill the the dead part of the woods that is where the creepy stuff happens. I had my jacket tugged on at the bottom and no one was with in 5 feet of me. when we got out of there looking at my jacket you could see finger prints that were tiny like a child grabbed me. so think what you like something is there.

My grandparents, Nathaniel and Mary Mongosa, lived in a log cabin on that lane in the early 1900's. It was Miami Tribal land and my grandfather was 1/2 Miami Indian. Some of my aunts and uncles were born in that cabin. The home is long gone but there is still a foundation area left from the log cabin, that was located at the end of the lane. My Dad has always called the area the family's "fire lane cabin"...so it may be haunted by my ancestors.

Its all a joke.  I have been coon hunting on this "supposedly haunted," place many of times and I have never seen or felt anything abnormal.  For those of you who dont know, coon hunting takes place in the dark hours.  I have been there anywhere from 9:00pm till 6:00am.  This is all in your heads.  If you were to go there without the premonition of it being haunted, it would be just the same as any other woods at night.

The best part about going here is to hide in the tree line along the lane and jump out and scare the hell out of others passing through to experience the thrill of ghost.  I've heard men scream their lungs out!  it's quite humorous for myself only being a 100 pound girl! ya ya!!!

Before the dam was built and the water flooded to create the present reservoir, as a child I was told about all Indian homes and little towns that had to be "moved." The homes were moved or demolished but foundations stayed behind, graves were supposed to have been moved, but just like Poltergeist, only the headstones in many cases were moved. There really were people left behind when the area was flooded to create the reservoir. Frances Slocums' home site is under the dam at Peoria and her relatives may have been in unmarked graves and were not moved. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of burials in that area from both Indians and white settlements.

But they have reraised the water an now it is under water again. We found a few arrow heads an what appeared to be a chizzle. Sux they did that.

I have been out there like 3 times, the 3rd time I went out there it didn't scare me at first because I played the gift of a friend by demi lovato while I was out there. It scared me a little bit but not too much. Anyways, the next day I woke up it seemed like the evil spirt came home with me, I played the same cd and it turned to the same song that I played and I told it to leave my room in Jesus Name, and I haven't had that problem since. I wouldn't go back out there, not even if my life depended on it

Me an my family have camped/fished there since i was a baby. Never really hear to much with a big group. But since i have grown me an my bro do alot of night fishing there when we can. We usely get there between 11-12 at night an stay until like 3-4 am. On most calm nights. We would hear things creeping up behind us as we fish. An turn to nothing being there. Always have the creepiest feeling when ever you go there. If the fish are biting then we usely dont hear anything out of the ordinary. But if there not then its gonna be a crazy night. My bro an i have heard hair curling screams of what sound like a small girl. Screams that made us go to the circle looking an to find nothing but a bloody rag next to a fire pit still warm. Even though we were there for 5 hours an there was no smoke coming from the pit when were arrived. But for the best scare watch the weather channel. When the next severe thunderstorm rolls through there thats the time to go. I have seen a lantern coming from down the river toward us an a evil black dog across the water.  This place is not always active in my opinion. But i'd say atleast 85% of the times i've went there has been somthing happening. But the worst by far was the Screams of that girl. Still get chills just driving back there. If you cant get somthing happening i have a secret method an it always works. Fire up a dooby or piece. An just set there in the dark. No light what so ever. an listen.

My friends and I are going there for about our billionth time tonight. We've had nights where nothings happened and we got bored and left and we've had nights where coon hunters were hunting so we left and we've had nights where coyotes were on the prowl and left but we've had nights where the spirits were there and odd things happened and being one who can sense feelings in spirits I've laughed for no reason and cried after being quiet a friend of ours even got an EVP of "Stephanie" saying hello. Despite what people say she isn't an evil ghost, she's a scared little girl who just wants to go home and when we come out there she really just wants to say hi and play.

i just went there tonight, me and 4 other friends. one of my friends was too scared and sat in the car. the other 4 of us started walking up the path towards the left of the long white gate. as we were about 10 feet in i saw something run past me wearing white and looked like it hid behind a tree when i had everyone look. my boyfriend told me that my eyes were just messin with me and that i was just scared. well i know i saw it. we get about 20 more feet up in the woods and standing with her hands on a tree right infront of us was a tall woman in a long white gown, with long dark hair and looked very sad/upset, i pointed strait at her and said omg guys look and started crying and my boyfriend shined his phone light at where i was pointing. all at the same time we took off running to the car. when we got back to the car i explained exactly what i saw and matt & spenser & austin had seen the exact same thing.

all i have to say about okie is that i have caught lots of voices and activity on my digital recorder and there are many intelligent entities trying to communicate and it wasnt locals screwing around and it was very late at night and we were deep in the woods and we didnt see anybody else there that night so either that place is haunted or i am so get a recorder, get a flash light cause its going to be dark (not daytime), strap on your walking shoes and walk til your outta breath and sit there and do some hard-core investigating and you just might catch some real life proof of whats going on at many weird locations in the midwest
