The campground being talked about in today’s post has more than just ghosts scaring those that camp here. Something in the this area seems to be attracting more than the living. Even the Forest Rangers that work have experienced things that they can’t explain.
Sometimes the events of from long ago seem to soak into the areas where history was made. With everything going on right now in the United States, these ghostly echoes remind us of those who came before to fight these battles either in the field or in a hospital bed.
Despite what the previous posts this week may have shown, not all campgrounds are haunted by spirits who were murdered there. There are campgrounds that are haunted by those who worked in the area or died in the campground from less nefarious reasons.
Growing up in North Carolina, I heard about a lot of different legends and ghost stories. One of the more notorious that was localish to Chapel Hill was the Devil’s Tramping Ground in Chatham County. The Devil’s Tramping Ground is just a barren area in the middle of the forest south Siler City. It’s a short walk from Devil’s Tromping Grounds Rd so this is an easy place to go check out.
