Might this possibly be for David Paulides missing 411 documentary that he's currently making?
I can't wait for this movie, the books are extremely intriguing.


No its not. There is a TV show called "Mysteries at the National Parks" it deals with cryptid, Ghosts, Devil Dogs, Demons, UFOs etc etc etc. That is what this thread was for. The TV show has already done most episodes on the parks listed in the OP.

I don't tell this story very often, for a number of reasons:

1) Ridicule. My own family made fun of me over it
2) I was at a young age and don't remember too many details
3) I certainly don't want any fame or recognition for relating this story
4) If my name were to be associated with this story, I don't want any publicity that might affect my employment

The only reason, therefore, I'm telling this, is that I'm more or less anonymous on this forum (i.e., my real name is not displayed).

Here goes:


I was a very small child, probably just barely school age. My family used to go on picnics in the mountains all the time, and the places we went made me think this must have happened in the Lincoln National Forest.

We were walking around our picnic area. I was a few feet away from the rest of the family (my brother, and my mom and dad). I began to get the sensation that something was "talking to me in my head." Something was trying to get me to follow it with the promise of candy or something. It wanted me to walk in a certain direction away from the family. I got the idea that this "candy" it promised was just out of sight, and if I would just follow the voice in my head...

I got a little frightened and returned to the rest of the family. Nothing ever came of it, but when I tried to discuss it I was laughed at.

I should state that now I am middle-aged and I have never been diagnosed with any sort of mental disorder, nor do I take medications for any sort of mental or psychological issue.

I rarely tell this story to anyone.

Definitely interesting to say the least.

on a different note, does anyone know what this production was/is called and if its available for view yet?

It does make you wonder if any of the Missing 411 cases involved some sort of coaxing or luring - particularly the children. The legendary Wendigo was said to mimic human voices to lure victims...
Perhaps you came close, but were one of the lucky ones that got away.

I'm thinking of retiring in the country,with some buds of mine,I have been reading on these story's one really intrigued me was the lady who was hiking with a friend when she slipped into some other dimension while being about 10 ft from partner,and was lost for a brief period of time,this plus the unusual story's of sightings of strange creatures of all kinds,it's hard to dismiss things as fantasy when you have witness statements,I am a skeptic but I do the math,taking these story's as folly is not such an intelligent thing to do,I grew up by the ocean,saw many strange things,along with friends and family,I'm sure the woods aren't any different,could be a vortex all I know is the older I get the more I realize plenty I know nothing about,why I keep an interest,more facts you know the stranger it gets

Yes, it would be ridiculous to think that all these accounts are either fabrications or people just being mistaken. Some, definitely, but not all.

Sounds like one of those Destination America shows. I'll watch their scary ghost shows once in a while. Their recreations aren't quite as good as the ones on the History Channel, but they're not bad. I'll frequently note that the actors used in the recreations are actually less better looking than the actual people being interviewed who had the experiences. And sometimes they're better on camera, too.

Mysteries at the National Parks Episodes

Wikipedia page says it's an ongoing series, wondering if there's any current plans for more episodes.

I know of an area, havn't explored it thoroughly myself but live in the area of it, that may hold interest to look into.

I hope the show is still on the way, would definitely do allot to spread awareness to hikers and explorers unsuspecting of the strange mysteries often surrounding the forests.

This story is not in a National Park but you are welcome to use it for whatever you would like. It takes place somewhere in NE Kansas.

Where I live there are lots of abandoned military locations. Some are the big ICMB type bunkers, but many are NIKE sites. The local NIKE sites were designed to intercept incoming ICBMS with small nuclear payloads (Nike Hercules).
Project NIKE

The bases were purpose built and have since been abandoned for better systems.
One of these abandoned locations is among my favorite abandoned places to explore and has been abandoned long enough to resemble the overgrown infrastructure from the movie The Lost World Jurassic Park- particularly the gate.

I used to go there with small groups of friends in the dead of night to explore the many abandoned structures and flooded out bunkers. It is in a relatively remote location and not easy to find. Once you are there you would be able to make whatever noises you like without fear of detection. We would always exercise as much light and sound discipline as possible anyway just as a good measure. I have been there around 10 times with different groups of curious people in tow and would do my best to keep everybody really quiet just in case.

In all the fascination most of the guests never were listening very close to the dense surrounding forest. One or two of my regular accomplices and I could almost always hear something big paralleling us in the forest as we made our rounds throughout the vast facility, close but keeping a careful distance. Once or twice somebody else heard it too but these were regular town kids not used to being out in the middle of nowhere. We would try not to tell anybody about it much since they usually start to panic in some way. Whatever the thing was seemed to move very careful, made a minimal amount of noise, but it sounded big, and sent hairs straight up on the back of our necks. The feeling you are being stalked, almost every single time.

The last time I was there we were on our way back to the Jeep to load up and leave. There was a personal disagreement of some type so people were being loud and crude on the way to the car. As we were opening the doors a whole pine tree sort of “snapped up” like it had been held down and released and shook back and fourth for several seconds. This caused the girls to scream and everybody scrambled into the Jeep as quickly as possible in a panic. The tree in question was perhaps 12-14 feet tall and less than 20 feet away, probably closer to 15. We still don’t know what could have caused it but I have a feeling it has something to do with whatever lives out there stalking intruders…..
The message was clear.

Do you mean "Mysteries of the Outdoors"? That's a great show, that I hope gets picked up for another season.
