The Ok Highway
It was maybe 3 miles down the ok highway from where 204th and the ok highway cross. There is a railroad track that goes along the highway. I remember walking down a path on the side of the road and then over the railroad tracks and down another small path to the lake.


Description of event: I think it was about 20 years ago when my father and brother and I went camping. We were there the whole weekend Fri. night - Sun. morning. We have camped in this spot for many years. At night I could hear sticks breaking, like someone walking around our camp site and every time I would tell my father, he would just say it was just my imagination and I should go back to bed.

Well the weekend had ended and we were packing up to go home. I went back to camp to make sure that nothing was left behind. Upon returning to the railroad tracks, I heard a loud snap. I turned and seen a very large animal fall to the ground from a tree. It then stood up on two legs and ran in the opposite direction. I was petrified. I ran to the truck crying. My dad told me it was a black bear. I didn't believe him.

Later that month my father went to go camping and fishing by himself and he brought our dog. When they got there, he was bringing the first load to the campsite, when the dog started to growl and bark. Then small trees where shaking and moving side to side. The dog took off and my father followed. Even though he did not see any thing, he now believes in bigfoot.
