Spend The Night At Georgia’s Most Haunted Campground For A Truly Terrifying Experience

Are you the type of person who loves a good thrill? If so, then we have the experience for you. Spending the night at Georgia’s most haunted campground isn’t for the faint of heart. Especially once the sun sets, the noises start from deep inside the woods, and the fire begins to die down. Eventually you’re in complete darkness in the middle of the woods, accompanied by the ghosts that haunt the park for fun.

At first sight….Hard Labor Creek State Park is beautiful.

There are some truly spectacular views from inside the park, not to mention the glory that is Georgia nature at every turn. However, Camp Rutledge, deep inside the park has a sorted and sinister past which makes it the most haunted campground in the state of Georgia.

As legend has it, Camp Rutledge has been haunted by two entities for quite some time now—one, a man who nobody knows the identity of, and two, a young boy named Ethan. The man is said to be angry, slamming doors, stomping around the grounds late at night, even knocking on cabin walls then disappearing. The boy is said to roll a red ball toward witnesses, laughing almost maniacally as he does.

Although many people have debated the validity of whether or not the campground is truly haunted, a few witnesses have come forward to share their tales of horror. One man and his friend were outside of the cabin and heard something LARGE, (much larger than an animal) stopping and running through the woods. Another witness has claimed that after stumbling across a small graveyard inside the camp with only three dilapidated headstones, he saw the figure of a small boy looming behind a tree, watching him.

In fact, Camp Rutledge was even examined by famed TV show Ghost Hunters to see if the camp and the nearby forest were indeed haunted, and filled with all types of paranormal spirits.

What do you think? Could Camp Rutledge be as haunted as some people think? Maybe the video below from YouTuber Dominic M might influence your opinion a little bit. Especially once you find out that the neighboring Camp Daniel Morgan was the filming location for Friday the 13th, Jason Lives!

The truth is, the only way you’ll find out if Camp Rutledge is truly haunted, is to experience it for yourself. Spend the night and document your stay! We’d love to hear what you find.
