Reader Submission: The Haunted Camper

“My ex and I purchased a camper and moved it onto our property. The old man who lived in it before had fallen in the camper, hit his head on the corner of the kitchen counter top, and died. There was still a bloodstain on the carpet. The man’s children were from out of the area and didn’t want to deal with the hassle of moving the camper, so they sold it for next to nothing.

Not long after we moved the camper next to our home, I was sleeping on the couch in our living room. I was laying with my back facing out towards the room, nearly asleep, when something touched me and I jerked awake. My first instinct was that my child had come to wake me because he couldn’t sleep. I turned around to ask him what was wrong, but nothing was there.

I then thought it was my cat because he would occasionally come up and tap me with his paw. I got up and looked around for the cat, but he was sleeping in my child’s room on his bed. I was creeped out and almost went back into the bedroom, but decided to go back to the couch. To this day, I’m convinced that something inhuman touched me that night. I had a few other strange things happen, and I feel like it had something to do with moving that camper to our house.

Another time, I was home alone, watching TV in the living room. My chihuahua¬†was laying in the corner of the room facing towards me. All of a sudden, he got up and started barking as if he saw something. At first, I thought he was barking at me, which was unusual, but I realized he wasn’t looking directly at me but in front and to the side of me. He then went from barking to whimpering and running around in circles in the room, as if something was chasing him.

He continued on into the kitchen which is when I noticed he was not only running in circles and crying, he was also peeing on the floor as he ran. I picked him up and tried to comfort him and looked to see if there was anything wrong. I was so concerned I called my boyfriend and asked if I should bring him to the vet. His sister worked at a vet clinic, so I drove him down there just to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong with him. They looked him over and said he was fine and couldn’t explain the strange behavior.

I don’t know, but part of me thinks maybe he was barking at something he saw and that something didn’t like it. I think the thing started to chase my dog and scared him to the point of pissing himself. My dog had never behaved that way before and never did again. It was just a weird, inexplicable freak out.”
