With the Halloween season fast approaching we've been researching and visiting various haunted locations around the state and passing along all the creepy stories and hauntings from all over Oklahoma. The Sooner State has more than its fair share of ghost stories, urban legends, and terrifying tales. The state has several locations with paranormal and even supernatural activity. We've got it all when it comes to ghost stories.


One of the most haunted places in Oklahoma is a lake located in Sulphur, OK. called Veteran's Lake. It's a beautiful place, at least during the daytime. It was built back in 1933 and is a part of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. The lake is roughly 67 acres and has a 3-mile shoreline that people use for hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, boating, and trail walking. It's a really popular place for people to visit and camp at.

So what's the story and why is it said to be one of the most haunted lakes in the state? It's rumored to be haunted by a female ghost and her child. Supposedly this woman and her child drown in the lake and their restless spirits have remained in the lake ever since. People believe that if you enter the water at nighttime the ghosts will try to grab and pull you under. There have been reports of apparitions floating across the water and seeing the reflection of the woman and child's faces in the lake when looking into the water.


People have also said they've heard a woman's voice while out on the lake boating pleading for help and asking for someone to save her child from drowning. Some say the place is cursed and tell of another young woman who drowned in a boating accident years after the woman and child died in the lake. Was she pulled in by the ghost woman and her child? Some people think so and avoid going in the water at Veteran Lake.
