The Sinister Story Behind This Popular Wyoming Lake Will Give You Chills

Typically, state parks are places for relaxation and lighthearted fun. One state park in Wyoming, however, has the shadow of tragedy darkening its history.

You’ll find Lake De Smet near the base of the Bighorn Mountains, and although pioneers and travelers through the area came across it as early as the 1840s, Native Americans have known about it for generations. With a history of eerie incidents, the lake is the setting of an Indian legend that will give you chills.
