Although this is my first post on ATS, I have been reading the forums for many years now. I think for about at least 3 years. I normally just lurk in the shadows of other posts while trying to draw my own opinion on the subjects discussed. Typically I dispise forums because of all the "flaming" that goes on. Although I am giving myself a kick in the a$$ now in order to come forward about topics I need others to shed light on.

The topic I want to bring to everyones attention is an underground base that I can find no mention of anywhere that is located in Dawsonville, Georgia. The base is located in Dawson Forrest. This is federal property by the way. If you travel up 400 North past Cumming, past exit 17, you will come to the North GA outlet mall. At this light you turn onto "dawson forrest rd" ( i think thats the name.. but a simple google earth/mapquest query and you can surely check).

I have a very good friend (thats how all these stories start out.. but bear with me) who for a while loved the hobby of urban exploration. For those of you who dont know, urban exploration is a hobby shared by many young people to explore abandoned, old, damaged, or unvisited places/structures... I think thats a pretty good description... shoot me if I missed something there. Anyway one day my friend is talking to our buddy who works for the GA DOT. He is in charge of all the construction that goes on with the roads.. right now he is working in CUMMING doing construction on the roads off exit 14. Before he worked for the DOT he worked for a contracting company. Back in the early 90s the company he worked for (which I can provide the name but I would need to ask him again) was contracted by the US GOVN to cover up a NUCLEAR Reactor at a underground military base in the Dawson forrest. Nobody knew about the base. Only select individuals where allowed to work on this contract. My friend himself did not work there, but like I said he worked for the company. Guess what.. After he left the company he talked to several of his old friends about the subject of the base. He obtained copies of the paperwork and shared it with us. The paperwork clearly stated what the job entailed.

The job was to seal off the nuclear reactor (not sure what with) then poor concreate over it several feet deep. Then they were flood the base with water. Then seal off all entrances/exits to the base. The job was completed and time went on.

Enough of the history of how I found out about the base, but I found it nessasary so I dont get flamed. I didnt stumble upon this and make this up, we found out about it from someone who has nothing to do with any of this, just a family friend, and someone who doesnt have any opinions of what is up there.

After we found out about the base via our friend, we started asking other people have they heard of it. I asked my father who was in the military (Navy Seal during Nam then worked for Lockhead and Dobins Air Force Base after he retired) and he said he believed no such base existed. I searched google, google maps, (at the time google earth was not around) and the MS terra server sat photos.. We found nothing. Then we asked some local people we know up there, because my friends are from White County, which is HELEN GA.

We eventually heard some TALL TELL stories of people going to the base and getting in trouble. To spare you of events that I have no knowledge of or proof, i will only briefly describe the stories.
1) A guy and girl went up to the dawson forrest and where making out in their car in the woods. After about an hour or so there was a knock on the _.. They where greeted by two FBI agents who escorted them out of the woods and to a police station. Questioned and then let go.
2) A group of divers went up to the base, found a way in and wanted to explore. They returned and said the base was at least 6-7 stories deep and was flooded, but filing cabinets and desks and even trucks are still down in the base.

continued from above....

After we heard these stories it was too hard to resist going to check for ourselves.. I myself along with 3 other friends went out to find the base around 11pm at night about 3 and half to 4 years ago.. i dont remember the exact day or anything.

After going deep into the woods we came to a creek/river. There used to be a bridge (cement) but it had been taken down (professionally destroyed and not natural or anything). There was two giant cement walls (like the ones that separate the highways) blocking a car from driving over the once existing bridge. I did notice on these cement walls a "US RANGERS" logo that was painted on. I found this cool because I knew we were close. The 2nd strange thing i noticed was in the distance off to the left was a "BUNKER" type structure... It had a BLUE light above the door. Weird for an abandoned base to have power right? We all got out of the car and ventured across the river, big mistake because at this time it started raining. WE continued on and found it. About a mile into the woods past that river we found doors leading into the ground that had been cemented shut.. not just the bottoms either, but the whole doors. We found walkways and stuff that lead to cement piles. Everything was overgrown so you could not tell where the roadway was at all, or even where the high traffic areas where. We explored for about 2 hours and found no way into the base at all. After venturing back to the car we all agreed that what we had seen was the coolest discovery we had ever made.

Since that incident we have returned only 1 time. Still no entry into the base at all. All of us besides myself and 1 other friend gave up on the base. For the past 3 years I have continued to search with no luck. Nothing on the internet at all that I can find. My friend did however find out some information. I cannot PROOVE it, however thats what im posting this for. I want to know if anyone else has any kind of idea about this base.

What we believe/know is that the base was used during the COLD WAR for nuclear weapons testing. After the cold war ended the GOVN wanted to dispose of the base. My guess is a nuclear reaction of somekind and they wanted to cover it up. Hense why they used some small time hush mouth contractor company to seal it off, pay them alot of money and they wont ask quesitons type of thing ya know? This is all that I can conclude.

However after reading numerous posts here on ATS I have drawn my own opinion. I think this base is connected some how with other underground bases the government uses to develop alien technology and such. I beleive something went wrong here and the government wanted to cover it up. Search for yourself, there is no record of the base anywhere that i can find, and sure enough, go there in person and you will find it. Good luck and be careful though.

Please will someone here shed some light on this "Mysterious Base" for me. I want to know im not the only one here in GA who has been there. Im not crazy. Please dont Flame me.

What a great post. I envy you. Being so close and having tangible evidence
is like having your cake and eating it too!
Do you plan to return? Have you drawn a map of the lay-out of the base itself?
Did you find any signs or references to private companies on the base?
Could you talk to the company that poured the concrete, and ask them to verify
some of your findings?
Pictures?
Surely someone local knows something as most bases are not self-sustaining
indefinitely.
Good luck. And don't go alone again. Not good practice.

I was just about to flame you out of principle, but I have to admit -- you convinced me.

Sounds like we're neighbors. U2U me with some details and directions. I'm only an hour or so south of Helen, so a jaunt in the woods wouldn't be much for me.

Also, I'd love to probe the state government and federal energy department for documents concerning this station. The rumor is that it's nuclear-related, but there are any number of possibilities. Any details you can give would be helpful -- esp. the name of the contractor that did the work. I can then FOIA its name for any docs concerning work it did in the area for the gov't. If you're comfy, I'll keep your info confidential.

Hex, you are the man. You get my vote for ATSer of the year.


BINGO!



It is the decommissioned site of the former Georgia Nuclear Aircraft Laboratory (GNAL), which was operated by Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, under contract for the U.S. Air Force, until it was decommissioned around the end of 1971.
Facilities containing radioactive materials at GNAL included a test reactor, hot cell building (Figure I-1), seepage basins, and cooling-off area (for temporary outdoor storage of “hot” items after irradiation at the reactor site).




The cooling-off area and the hot cell building were subsequently fenced-in to prevent public access. Entrances to the hot cell building and to reactor-area structures were also sealed off to prevent intrusion, due to physical safety concerns and radiological concerns. Fences weren’t deemed necessary at the reactor site, however, since the concentration of radioactive material, which was formed through reactor-generated neutron activation of soil, was lower and more diffuse, as compared to the hot spots found inside of the cooling-off area and inside of the hot cell building.



By the way, the document linked above provides actual maps to the sites. For those adventurous enough to glow in the dark.....

Wow just saw this thread!

I have been out there years ago. I am from Alpharetta and my best friend's father works for LM. We heard of this site from him and off we went. We did not get very far though. DNR officers made us leave.

You know, having a buried secret nuke site in Dawsonville explains sooo much about Dawsonville! LMAO J/k....not really!


Humm...I am living in VA for the next 10-18 months, but I am coming back (No Pun intended...and my fellow ATLiens will get the joke) to see my family over xmas. Mom lives off Kelly Mill....might just have to make another sight-seeing trip up thar! LOL

Can't wait to have you back among the pines. I'm a Norcross/Duluther...so very familiar with your territory.

And yes, it would explain Dawsonville to me as well. I always wondered what the hell was wrong with the builders of Helen, Ga. Only exposure to radiation could have anyone create something as hokey as that town.

Dang man! I just moved from Johns Creek/Holcomb Bridge in Aug....Behindthe scenes & hexed1911, ya'll fancy a road trip during...say between Xmas and New Years?



About that "pines thing" that is the strangest thing about W. VA. No dang pine trees in the forests. I have yet to see a yard with pine straw either. I keep telling everyone here that if they don't have pine straw as a landscaping material...they ain't really in the South! LOL

Wow, great find!

I used to live about 20 minutes away from Augusta Georgia, and I am completly surprised that there are so many strange places in Georgia.

The next time you guys go back to the site, do you think it might be possible to bring back some pictures? I live so far from Georgia now that it would be almost impossible to visit this place, and Id love to see what it looks like.

Wow... It took me a while to make the intial post and I was hoping not to get flamed. I am so glad there are other ATSers out there who know what the hell Im talking about. Good job with the PDF find behindthescenes. I couldnt remember the name of the damn base.

As for everyones questions, I will try to get in touch with our friend who works for the DOT and ask him to see if he can get copies of the paperwork again that show the contract to seal off the base/reactor.

As for pictures, at the time we searched the base, it was for urban exploration purposes, I had no idea of the other bases around the world. Esp. Dulce. I dont think I will be going back up there to explore any time soon. I am very very busy now and the extent of my searches can only be conducted on the internet. I would be happy to give directions to anyone who needs them.

As for the Base itself.... I dont know what to believe it was used for, but I know dawsonville forrest is a creepy place. I wish deep in my heart that this base was used for some sort of antigravity aircraft testing, but from what I KNOW, it is not. It was only used for nuclear aircraft testing. But hey.. who is to say they conducted tests their not reported in any paperwork, I mean c'mon... Its a secret base that no one knows about. Not even my father who worked for Lockhead.

Does anyone have any further questions/comments? I would be happy to answer them, but please no flamming as you will be ignored, be adults about this subject because this could be a big step in uncovering (no punn intended) the secret underground base subject worldwide.

Mezzanine - I dont think I will be returning. Only for the fact I work full time and have a few side projects I am working on as well. I would be happy to give other ATSers directions and they may go explore themselves. There is PROOF this place exists so its not a "wild goose chase".

Ok. I figured out these boards.. nice coding.. makes it very easy to use.. Good job MODS. Now I will do multiple replies as not to flood the board with single messages.

Hah.. I wish you could, the cement lines not just the bottoms of the doors like most abandoned places, but it covers up the WHOLE door. Like imagine a pile of cement being just poored over a bunker/doorway. Its like 8 feet tall. They DONT want people inside. AT ALL. WHY?

Thanks.. I do feel lucky.. because when I started reading this forum I kept thinking about this base I had seen, and how it "could" be related to all this government cover ups about alien technology.

Buford, I am unable to see the jpg you posted, however I do know that when I looked on google earth a few days ago, it was very hard to find. I was trying to find some sort of PROOF for everyone of a picture of the bunkers/parking area (overgrown with foliage now) but it was too hard to depict anything from the sat photos. Unless it has been "edited" out.

Imperium Americana - Thats great, another one who has been there. I went at night time, that way those DNR officers wouldnt find us, however its a lot harder to see anything at night, and its not very safe. But heh, I guess we were stupid kids.. haha

Top thread Hexed,i viewed your first entry on this post last night.
In the great tradition of ATS the bigger picture has now emerged-only a day later!
Excellent work by Behindthescenes!

I remember hearing about a decomissioned and sealed underground base in the UK.
This was actually in a residential area,and had its own nuclear reactor,and the area still gave a higher than normal reading on gieger counters.It was on a BBC radio 4 program about 2 years ago-wish i could remember the location,as a google search shows nothing apparently.

Hopefully I can find a lull in my hectic family and job life to do this. Yeah, look me up during that time. A roadtrip sounds fun.

I would guess that Atlanta probably has a whole city underground.
Anyone ventured in the sewers there to find out?

Well, we do have something called Underground Atlanta, which is cheesy at best. But if you're referring to the underground city postulated on the television show "Vanished," not to my knowledge. Although there has been consistent rumors that a cadre of secretive masonic leaders rushed its stockpiles of gold and silver and cash into a secret vault near Stone Mountain just before the Union Army burned Atlanta to the ground.....

In fact, the carving on Stone Mountain is actually the Mason's treasure map to its buried loot. If you allegedly trace lines from where the three figures on the mountain -- Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson -- are gazing off to, the vertex will literally land you x-marks-the-spot of the secret vault.
