You'll find this location off of River Road as you head to Mississinewa Reservior. In the past, the area was marshy where decayed bodies have been found. In one instance, a young man name Joey Peoria disappeared while camping here in 1976. There’s also incidences of men being brutally murdered and showing up here. Ghostly spirits are believed to exist here.

  • It's real. Dont mess around

    (7-6-2020)We just left the okie pinokie trail and while there my boyfriend and I got into a arguement and (before entering we both were in happy moods) after the argument we were walking by a tree and it felt like I got pushed into the tree and scratched, but when we got back into the vehicle my boyfriend pointed out to me that the scratches were in 3s and looked like they were from claws not a tree branch. We also went down the path to the river and while standing in the river my friend and I heard what sounded like a scream and while walking through the woods I heard people talking and high pitch screams. I am saying that this place is not a joke and you should not mess around. Please be safe and be sure to have a group when you go out there!

  • This is no Joke

    I have been out here about 15 times now, my boyfriend has been about 50 times. We recently bought some pretty good ghost equipment to use, and since we have used it at Okie, we get a lot of activity. He has witnessed people sacrificing animals out there when he was younger. 3 weeks ago I heard the screams for the first time. We went back out tonight, got a lot of stuff through the voice box. Then we were chased out of the woods by atleast 10 very loud screams of a young girl that seemed to be following us. I am a very honest person and I am telling you, these woods are filled with spirits. There was no one else out there tonight except the 4 of us. Please be careful going in and out and be prepared.

  • Eerie howls heard.

    Last month, on April 19th, I visited Okie Pinokie for the first time. I was there around sunset, and it seemed okay. Once the sun went down, I started hearing what sounded like howling off in the woods. It didn't sound like coyotes. I don't know what it was. It eventually turned into a weird humming sound and went silent. A clip of what I recorded can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/704155010402273/permalink/705955793555528/?comment_id=706014400216334

  • Town local.

    I used to live in another town miles away and would come and see my friends in Peru, going out to Okie Pinokie just to bullshit around. Over the years and the many times I’ve went I have experienced something every single time. I now live here in Peru, I’ve always had respect for those woods considering the historical facts that back up why it’s so haunted. What people don’t understand is not every night you’re going to experience something, some nights are more active than others. What is even more creepier and adds to the negativity, there was a brutal murder that happened out there as of last year in 2018. It was a drug deal gone bad and the events of the situation were absolutely horrific. This place is no joke and it’s not for people that think it’s all fun and games because you’ll find out real quick what Okie Pinokie is about. It’s beautiful during the day, at night it’s a whole other world. The stories and the legend of Joey are false but everything else is as accurate as it gets. The whistle legend is true, having a feeling that you’re unwanted and being watched is true, hearing screams happen out there, and at times there’s phantom vehicles that are seen going into the woods when you’re heading out.

  • ITS REALL

    Well this is what kinda happened. My cousin set her phone down on the dirt road with it recording with flash on facing the sky. You can hear my cousin trying to talk to it, and then my gfs cousins phone went haywire, but my cousin continues to talk. She asked it to turn her light off on her phone. And at about 34 seconds you can see in the video where the light went off while still recording! I have the video. At first i wasnt a 100% believer but im here to tell you there is just no way her light just happened to go out after asking it to.

  • Handprint

    So I’ve been to okie pinokie once before and I was telling some of my friends about it and how we only heard some whistles but that’s it. So I convince them to go there with me and we didn’t even make to the devils circle before they started freaking out to go back. So I pull in this part to turn around and we sit there for about 5 minutes and left. By the time we were back on the highway one of them sees a handprint on our back window. That’s all that happened but I told them this weekend we’re going again and actually going to the devils circle

  • Mississinewa Reservoir

    I've been parked out there about 2am and nothing was going on until we'd been there about 20 min. All of the sudden a noise started that sounded like something metal being tapped on the front fender. I was driving and turned on the headlights and we saw nothing, but continued to hear the tapping noise, which was actually scarier. Luckily the car started and we left.

  • Paranormal Spooks

    I had gone 4 days ago (April 1, 2019). We pulled in and I already wasn't about it. I heard whistling and I found items that looked like they belonged to a cult. We walked down he bath with our Black Light and found things written on trees; such as: dates, times, names, and expressions. Although I was scared of running into something paranormal, it was pretty cool. But on our way out of the site, there were noises like as if someone was scratching the rearview window with a fork. Also it looked as if somebody had written "Beware" with blood on a wooden post. The stop sign also had a "blood like substance" on it. I recommend if you want to test your fears.

  • BEWARE

    I regret my travels to the forest. Staying late nights out of curiosity to the paranormal and brought something home with me. I cannot stress this enough, if you are reading this, stay away from that forest.

  • Check it out.

    I've been out there, heard and seen things that definitely we're not just regular people. This guy talking about he's never seen or heard anything has been lucky cause the four times I've been out there, three we heard or seen something. There's a little girls laugh we've heard, and it was at 1 am deep in the woods. It's freaky out there. Even if u don't experience anything, it's still spooky just being in those woods. My cousin and I got lost out there, we were drinking so that didn't help but still it was scary. Go check it out!

  • Long time visitor

    I am a hunter who has been to that exact location for the past 30 years. I would be there during the bow and gun seasons. Sometimes I would hike the trails and I am here to tell you all that never have I ever experienced anything paranormal nor felt cold spots or ever been overwhelmed with any kind of feelings of a presence. I believe that people are just trying to do what they can to make others think that there is anything out of the normal here. It is a complete joke. Screaming? Whistling? Footsteps? Come on now! Any noise you may here is due to either animals or other people. Just down the way is the spillway and campsite. Not spirits trying to communicate but actual people nearby.
