ocala national forest (mud lake)
(silver springs , florida , marion county)
It was said that mud lake was where the members of the KKK dumped the bodies of the people they hung.
most people that can get to the lake say they see hands rising from the waters surface and at some point you can see dead klan members surrounding the lake's edge.
there have also been reports of seeing a ghostly burning cross in the distance and truck headlights tearing through the forest then they go into the lake and disapear.
on the walk back there you may experience being choked as if you were being hung and you may not be able to breathe. when i arrived home from this walk i had a red ring around my throat that later bruised as if i had been hung along with everyone else.
you can also hear faint footsteps and if your lucky someone may whisper in your ear but all in all it is not an adventure to take on your own!
