The Devil’s Tramping ground is a camping site in North Carolina. The folk and lore allege that this is where the devil “tramps” and so nothing grows on this land. Objects disappear there, dogs are too terrified to go onto it, and so are people. Now this is just a local lore in N.C. so it might not be true, but who wants to go spend the night?
Devil’s Tramping Ground is located in a wooded area of Chatham County in North Carolina. It is a forty foot in diameter circle. It is said that any object that is placed in the circle will mysteriously disappear or move outside of the circle. No vegetation will grow inside the circle. This bizarre phenomenon was first discovered in the 1800′s and it is believed by many that Satan paces around this circle.
