Visitor Tips and News About Most Haunted U.S. Cemetery?
This abandoned graveyard has many ghostly tales associated with it. It does have an eerie presence and it is sad to see how many graves have been vandalized and desecrated. The lake brings a lot of mosquitoes to the area, so don't forget the bug spray. Also, avoid the area at night unless you want to get arrested. I drove by at night, initially, and two police cars were waiting at the nearby parking area.[Crystal JD, 10/02/2014]
Not bad. I can see why it's spooky at night. Evidence of some vandalism, but still pretty cool to see. Do not go there alone![James, 03/31/2012]
I went here during the day a few years ago. Very interesting, and sad too. Badly vandalized. People get arrested ALL the time going here, but it's always at night. I'm not sure if it's legal during the day, but you're less likely to look like you are up to no good.[Stephanie, 01/26/2010]
