On the shores of the eastern shore of Virginia is Cherrystone Camping Resort. Nestled between the Atlantic and Chesapeake, it is a family campground. I go there every year in June with my brother and grandmother. For the past 4 years so many memories have been made there, yet one stands out with such a strange aura. June 2008 I was in the back part of the campground next to a salt water pond, far from any RVs, tents, cabins. Across the way I see some black shape float above the water and then instantly vanish. I passed it off as smoke or something of that nature.
June 2010, we went down for the second time. One night I heard footsteps coming from outside the RV and then a loud knocking at 3 AM in the morning. Now who in their right mind would do that? Not any human. I looked out the window and saw a figure dressed in what appeared to be late 19th century garments. I literally jumped back and flew right back into bed.
Later that week I was out crabbing, it was a brisk evening and I was casually sitting on the pier waiting for a crab to come buy and snatch the line. When I saw a hooded figure come out of the water 20 yards away and walk/float into the campground and then disappear. I immediately packed up my gear and ran to the RV. I told my grandmother and brother. My grandmother told me when she was making tacos earlier she felt like something menacing was in the RV watching her. After that we roasted marshmallows and the trip continued as normal.
June 2011, we went down for our 3rd time, this was the trip with THE MOST activity. I was in the camp store, at the very back, alone getting ice cream for dessert for later in the evening. When all of a sudden I saw a green mist float into the wall. I dropped the ice cream and ran to the front desk where I asked the lady if they had some sort of gas leak, and they didn't. I told her about the mist and she got a look on her face.
She told me that the campground staff had strange experiences concerning a black hooded figure, a reoccurring mist, and some other spirit. I couldn't believe it. I was shocked, so I told her about my experiences. Apparently other guests had similar experiences. With that information in mind I told my grandmother. She believed me and we kind of shrugged the whole thing off because we weren't going to waste our vacation searching for ghosts.
One night I went to the bathhouse in the center of the campground for a shower and when I entered it I felt like I was being watched, very closely. Then I heard a loud bang and a voice say get out. To the best of my knowledge there wasn't anybody else in the rest room at the time. I quickly left and went to another bathhouse... While we were enjoying our last day I saw a human looking spirit move across the marsh, I knew it wasn't a person because if you walk into the marsh surrounding the campground your feet will sink in all the way up to your waist. The spirit looked my way and we made eye contact, it then disappeared.
After those experiences at that campground I am very curious to know what was I experiencing? Could the hooded figure be a demon? What is significant about the green and black mists I saw. I am going back this June and hopefully maybe document something paranormal. (I know not to use a Ouija board, but since its VERY far from my home, would it be okay?) Anyway I would love to know what you think. These experiences at that campground still strike fear into me. Thank you.
