So this happened to me a few years back. My friends and I decided we would go on a camping trip when most of our friend group was finally graduated. There was a wide range of us from 19 – 16 years of age. We decided to go for a week on our trip. We live in Newfoundland, Canada. Here we have decently dense wooded areas within our city limits. So we decided to camp in the city, I know its not the typical out of city away from everything camping ideal but we did what we could as only one or two of us could drive and more than 10 people in tiny cars doesn’t work.
We went about 15 minutes into the woods, basically where we could see the city but not hear it or be affected by its bright lights at night. It was a nice area, a hill though but we worked with it. The fire pit we made was in a dense bit of woods that was about 10 feet deep, nothing big. (the fire place is important) Around us was trees, and ATV paths. Occasionally a few people going for hikes but no one ever bothered us.
Everything was fine and fun for the first few days running around, going swimming, smoking weed and getting heavily drunk; ya know teenage stuff. After a few days, people started to clear out, but myself, my boyfriend Jason, his little sister Thea, our friend Mike, and a few other friends stayed.

So my sister and I always go on a camping trip with a really nice family but this years camping trip was the worst.
We had a camping spot with a big field and then a bathroom across from it. The weird thing was that nobody in my campsite was awake when this happened. Me and my friend, we’ll call Jessie in this story, were up late at night. It was just the typical talk about what were gonna do. Jessie wanted to tell scary stories and we did so.
Two hours went by of telling made up stories until we heard footsteps outside our tent. Jessie said “its probably one of the boys or the parents, calm down”. So I just went along with it. Soon after that I whispered to Jessie that I could hear them again.
We got out the tent to check it out when we saw a person crouching in the fields when they noticed us they ran into the woods. Jessie thought it was just a bunny or some type of animal but I thought it was a person. We got back into the tent and Jessie told me she was gonna watch videos using her hot spot, so we went for about an hour of watching videos.

First I want to say that I was not for sure to put this as a scary stranger encounter or scary camping story. Also I have a problem writing things so if it seems a little weird sorry about it.
Over this past summer I was camping with a couple long time family friends. For safety purposes I will call them Bill and Lauren. But thru out the whole previous summer Bill, Lauren, their kids, and I went camping at their camp site. Also with us were Lauren’s twin sister Ashley and her husband Tom and their kids. We usually went there for every weekend that it was nice outside but I’m just going to talk about the day I had the scary encounter. To start from the beginning of the day we all arrived at the camp site about noon we had some fun while swimming in the pond that the camp grounds had but I couldn’t shake off the feeling that I was being watched from the distance beyond the tree lines. I ended up not trying to think too much about it at all because I was having some fun while swimming in the hot Ohio weather. If you live in Ohio or ever spent a full summer day in it you will understand on how the weather patterns can be real stupid at times but it doesn’t get as hot as it does in other states that get it real bad thou.
We all decided to get out of the water to get dried off because we were going to cook some meat on a grill before game 7 of the Cavaliers vs Warriors game came on. I happened to look near the pathway that lead to the camper that Bill, Lauren, their kids, and I were staying at and all I could see was a man just standing there looking in our general direction and when he noticed I spotted him he ran into the trees so I was initially freaked out about this but I decided not to tell Bill, Lauren, Tom, or Ashley. We ended up grilling some steak and some other cow meat. We ended up getting a lot of meat because Tom works at a factory that does a lot with putting all the meats in the packages so he ended up bringing some of it with him to cook. So we got done eating about 6:30pm and since the game didn’t start until 7pm I believe we all went to Bill and Lauren’s camper and started a bonfire. We just talked until the game came on. We listened to the game on a Tom’s phone because we didn’t have a TV with cable.
