One Of The Most Haunted Forests In North America Is Right Here In Illinois

Forests have this amazing ability to be magical. But they also can be totally freaky, especially if the lighting is right. What about a forest that is allegedly actually haunted? This is what people who have visited Robinson Woods in Illinois say. Robinson appeared to have good fortune, acquiring this land by way of treaty with three tribes on Indians. But his luck soon ran out. A fire destroyed his home, ending his family’s claim to the property. It became park district property. Then things became weird. Three people were strangled and left completely naked in a ditch. These murders went unsolved until 1994.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.


People have been reporting all sorts of weird lights, sounds and smells. Witnesses include kids, runners, and police. These sights have been completely unexplained.

The sound of toms toms have also been reported. This might be because of the Indian burial mounds in the woods. People have also reported the sound of wood being sawed…even though this isn’t going on in the woods. Creepy.

Here is a great video showing how scary these woods are:
