The name 'Cave X' came about because there are 4 entrances that meet in the center, like an X. The cave is said to be haunted by two Cherokee lovers and it has been said that warrior Huraken found the cave and its hidden vein of silver, but kept it a secret so that he could use it to make gifts for the chief’s daughter, Manuita. When Huraken didn't come home after battle, Manuita believed he was dead, so she committed suicide by jumping off the cliff to her death. But he had only gone to the cave, and had decided to ask Manuita's to marry him and wanted to make her some gifts for the occasion. He came across Manuita's body on his way home, and hit it in the cave to watch over it but whent he chief found out, he thought Huraken was to blame for his daughter's death. His last request was to visit Manuita's body one last time in the cave, but he never made it out. Years later, inside the cave were found the bones of two bodies and some silver pieces. The caves and the legend have been written about in books.

  • Ghost at The Campground

    We were staying at one of the campers while at a family reunion, everyone stayed outside in a little circle, it was in the middle of the night and my mind starts to wonder off when all of a sudden I see this opaque figure running towards another campsite. I could see through it plain as day especially whenever it went in front of a tree so the light wasn’t shining through it. I could tell it was a child maybe around the age of 7 or 8 and it had been running faster than a normal child would, but as soon as it went behind a truck it vanished.

  • Carter cave resort cottage haunted

    September 9-11 my family stayed at a cottage in carter cave resort. We saw a man walk across the field and vanished before our eyes. We also had heavy footstep noises in our cottage and kitchen cupboard banged a few times. That really made us jump.
