Squaw Lake To Remain Closed
After several incidents of unusual happenings at Squaw Lake in the Powers Ranger District of the Siskiyou Mountains, The Forest Service agency has decided to close the lake to the public for 2010.
Regional Forest Service Supervisor WT. Willis said they have no information on who is responsible for the recent damage to trash repositories and information sign destroyed.
Over the last two years the agency has had three complaints of an unknown animal stocking the area with frightening noises. Willis said he has "no comment" that the lake has had recent sightings of the legendary Bigfoot, a creature said to roam the forest of North America.
It would be at the height of irresponsibility for us to say an animal is to blame. Willis denies that recent tracks were found at the compground. "If somebody found tracks, I don't have information on it," said Willis.
Two years ago a family of five camping in the remote campground reported that a large creature was watching their children from behind a large fir tree. Employees found a number of small trees twisted off and some indications of an animal's tracks near the lake shore.
Evidently the trouble didn't stop there. Two woodcutters reported just a month later that a hairy monster ran in front of them only three miles from the lake.
