Pretty thoroughly debunked by the friends of the Snyder family who regularly visit the location, particularly at night, to tend the graves and guard against vandals. (We make sure the faithful departed are toasted properly though, don't worry.)

i agree totally there are growing green lights that even float in the air. Strange figures occupy the area and you can see them. eyes in the forest peer at you if you are there. my friend has even been shoved by something out of the ordinary and i was there too but there was nothing in visual sight.

Me and a friend have been there late at night we saw no green lights but with our digiatal camera we were able to capture small orbs and in one photo in particular we did capture a face in the fog and it is quite clearly visible. Also the cameras batteries were brand new and not long after being there began to run low.

I went there last friday with two of my friends and we got a picture of mist and found two cold spots. Around the cold spots the temperature was 22.5 degrees and dropped to -12 in just those two spots and we got this happening on tape. Also when I went to take a picture of ths spot my camera turned itself off.

I've been there quite a few times now, we go at night, around midnight that's when it's best. Everytime it never fails, something always happens. Once, we went there, and there was no where to be found a teddy bear or ball. We went back an hour later, and right on a grave there was a ball and in the grass was a teddy bear. We've heard things. Caught things and seen things. It's pretty obvious that this place is haunted, the only thing I don't understand is.. why is there so many babies that died in the Snyder's family?

I have been there a few times now. If anyone wants to truely have an experience the best time to go is devil's night. Although, there seems to always be activity there. On devil's night I have seen, heard and experienced things that most people would never believe. That scared me to the point of not returning for ten years. And don't forget dead time is 3am. We have also heard the dog.

we went there tonight around 3 in the morning, and our friends back in the car saw a white flashing light, it went on and off about 4 or 5 times, and then after we heard a screach and crunching of the leaves like foot steps a weird fog appeared as we were running from the grave sight the crunching of the leaves and the screaching became louder.. we said a saying thing to make the shadows to stop following us, and the fog in the woods went away as we were drove away... it was pretty creepy, but it was so real. if you dont believe it, then go and check it out for yourself. it was an amazing experience.

me and two of my friends went the other night out there around 2 am and i went inside by myself and i put my hands on the bricks around the cememtry and we heard crying noises and seen red lights that looked like eyes right over the one grave. and when we left i got an extremely painful headache and my hands were shaking and we looked in the light i had a huge cut on my forehead and hand prints on my throat when no one had touched me and i did nothing to hurt myself so i had a very awesome experience.

I went last night and some vandals have destroyed most of the head stones.  It is a real shame.  Most of the makers are now shattered.

a group of us went out there lastnight, and had several freaky experiences including strange sounds in the woods that got closer and louder while we were there and a guy in a pick up showed up and parked in front of our car w/ his lights on and windows up never said anything or even looked at us just stared straight forward with his hands on the wheel... very wierd

we got there and within 15 or 20 minutes a fully charged camera and camcorder, 2 flash lights, and a spotlight all died. all were fully charged. there were some candles already there so we decided to light a couple. We started asking questions and every time we asked a question the candles would dim dramatically... might of been a coincidence but then we pulled out the frank's ghost box... use a 'ghost box' there. trust me. a very angry spirit is there along with some nicer ones. we also heard a story of a dog... didnt see one, but we heard a dog bark a couple times close by. maybe a stray i guess.

tonight me and my friend and a few family members are going there. Im related to most of the peopel in this cemetery and I love going there Last time my cousin who I am very good friends with got attacked by something that looked like fire but you could only see it when you took a picture of him. we took a picture of the entrance and there where about four sets of eyes gaurding the way out. Also, I looked around in the woods and I could see them watching us. When we looked at our cars it looked as if some one was sitting in it but no one stayed in the cars.

i have 12 pictures and every pics has a face or a full body of a person, but i think best time to go is during the day an they do hide in the woods i take 165 photos and everytime i caught something it was always in the woods. copy those pictures and zoom in, you will see them.

we have gone several times and something talks to us, first time we went i starting feeling funny and my legs just stopped working and i was freezing-fun! we got two evp's that night one is a woman asking if someone was there (we think it said: "is isaac (or zac) here") and the second was a man's voice saying " he's got a gun" it was freaky listening to it but the next time we went back we more evp's-a dog constantly barking only on the recorder we did not hear a dog while we were there, next was this weird scream/moan it happened twice, 5 loud bangs almost like gun shots, and we asked the question "the last time we were here you asked if zac or isaac was here whic one is it?" we got a freakin reply of isaac. this place gives us the creeps, we did get orbs when we took pic's regular round colorful ones but then we got a moving square one? in 5 pic's this square orb moves from frame to frame. we also go the streaking orbs (looks like there going upwards) in most of our pic's and at first we thought maybe it was the camera moving until we looked at the other stationary orbs in the same pic's. there is definatly something still at snyder cemetary don't yet know what but were going to keep investigating!

i was there with my friends saturday night. and had a tape recorder and it kept making strange sounds but all of our phones were off. and we heard like a scream coming from the forest. and my friend thought she saw something in the trees. but i don't think we could get alot of sounds because some jerks smashed the tombstones. it a pretty cool place

me and my brother went there for cheep thrills.. I didn't ever belive in any of that stuff but it soon changed. when we arrived we waited till twelve we did not feel any cold spots or anything. i had brought my video camera to try to find something, while we were there we did see lights and other weird things so we decided to leave. when we got back to his house we watched the footage and nothing had showed up till the end... when we where walking back to the truck i let the camera dangle and forgot that it was recording, to leave you have to walk through reeds and stuff. my camera picked up a face looking up through the reeds into the camera.

I have a friend who is related to this family and carries the same last name. One day as I was driving past, i had noticed that the large Snyder stone had been knocked off the wall and broken. After contacting the park ranger regarding this, I was informed that the grave stones were destroyed by several high school kids from slippery rock, and the park is trying to get grant money from the state to have the stones repaired/replaced. They have also put a ranger on patrols through the area until 4AM, and there is a good possibility you will get caught here at night. The Snyder stone has since been put back on the wall, and I hope to see it remain there. I have seen many strange things here, including the fog, which up and disappeared the moment another car came down the road.

so my sister told me the story was that conrad killed his family all on the same night because his wife was cheating on him or something...but that doesn't make sense if all the dates on the headstones are different..we went there and my friend jake smokes but he didn't bring any cigarettes with him and in this one picture we took of him he had a cigarette in his hand, it was weird..we went there on halloween and other people were there and we were all talk and then we saw head lights coming down the road so we call jumped in our cars and drove away cause we thought they were rangers but the lights disappeared which is weird because you have to drive on that road for a while to get to snyder.

I'm the same as the previous poster... I've been there a few times. We got a couple EVP's from there, and one picture of what looks like a face. but nothing else. no hits on emf. no temp changes. no ghost dog, disappearing truck, or green mist. Cool place but not great.

have you guys seen that footage by that one guy? I'm surprised he went there because he's gone to some way more haunted places, I just watched his Villisca, Iowa footage, but he went to snyder's. I found it through a website on accident, but if you go to youtube it's under resident dead, or something, and his name might be adam or alan. resident undead maybe? Just type that in with snyder's cemetery after it, he was scratched there, with tons of witnesses as it happened. They pulled out a ouija board and tried to communicate with conrad.

So i decided to stop by here the other day, and someone has yet again knocked over two of the large tombstones. Also one of the other tombstones had been picked up and placed in front of the gate. The DCNR sign had been removed and tossed into the woods as well. Please people, be respectful.

i have been there many times throughout the years. i used to have pictures taken at night with what seems like thick fog on the ground (only in the pictures) and a gravestone glowing bright green. one night two friends and myself were there when a gravestone started glowing bright green right in front of us. i have seen headlights come down the road to where the vehicle is just about to come into view then it dissapeared. once there were these to people that showed up in a pickup truck. they walked up to the cemetery near us, would not respond to any questions. they just stared at the cemetery for a few minutes then turned around and left without saying a word to us or each other. every time ive been there ive heard a dog barking in the distance, sometimes not so distant.

Me and 4 other people were just there tonight, we didn't see anything unusual on our pictures or videos or on our evp... but we did hear sounds coming from the woods, it sounded like tree branches breaking all over in the woods around the cemetery. creepiest part of the night was when this big white truck stopped in the middle of the road and then kept going, then came back and just proceeded to sit there in the middle of the road w/ its headlights on. needless to say we ran back to our car pretty quick and took off. creepy ass truck, they were just watching us

It is a shame that anyone would desecrate a cemetery. A local boyscout and his troop did clean up the site and have a stone made with the names of the missing grave stone. They installed a path to the gate too. He still goes down once or twice a year and cut the grass. Please help to keep this area clean and remember it is a place where people are put to rest.

Anyone who desecrates my family cemetery deserves any misfortune that descends upon them. Please allow my ancestors to rest in peace at least in as much peace as is available to them.  Please show some respect, my family has done nothing to you, none of the Snyder clan is making trips to local cemeteries and vandalizing other's resting places, woe unto you if I encounter you descrating ours.  My grandfather John Lester Snyder took me there many years ago when I was very young, sad to see what has been done to the place in the intervening decades.
