Get Ready For CAMP PARANORMAL 4: GHOSTS OF LAKE MARION!!!
AN EVENT HELD BY PRS ENTERTAINMENT LLC.
Camp Paranormal is a multi-day event where PRS transforms a campground into a hub for paranormal discussion, discovery and experiences. This year, Camp Paranormal will take place at PALMETTO SHORES (Lake Marion, SC). We have reserved 7 cabins, along with a staff cabin. Each cabin accommodates 5-6 people and includes a living room, kitchen, full bathroom and satellite TV. With Camp Paranormal being so close to Buell's hometown, guests will get to tour the grounds of the historic Salem Black-River Church, where Buell conducted his first paranormal investigation. And there is a tentative evening trip to Charleston, SC for a ghost tour. There will be workshops, ghost stories over a bonfire, daily activities and a haunted boat tour over Lake Marion (an artificial lake covering up an old town).
Come be a part of the experience. April 5th - 8th, 2018!
Tour Salem-Black River Church & Sightings Of The Lizard Man.
Camp Paranormal will check out two haunted locations near the campground. First up, Salem Black River Church, which was built in the late 1700s and hosts a very historic cemetery that includes Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers. It's also the first place Ryan Buell investigated.
At age 16, Buell toured the grounds after receiving a tip from a friend. He and a teammate believe they captured some rather unique EVPs. Other teams have checked out the grounds. Numerous eye witnesses have claimed to have seen ghostly apparitions around the grounds in the day and evening. The church is also near Black River Swamp, where sightings of the infamous lizard man occurred in 1988.

A Ghost Town Sits At The Bottom Of Lake Marion.
Camp Paranormal 4 will take place at Palmetto Shores Resort on Lake Marion (Summerton, SC). Many come to Lake Marion in the spring and summer to enjoy boating, fishing and water ski'ing. But out-of-towners may not be aware that an entire town is buried below the surface, including a church and cemetery. The lake offers many islands.
During Camp Paranormal, attendees will get to board the USS Paranormal (okay, it's a pontoon boat, but still!) for a ride over the waters, where we'll share ghost stories and check out parts of the town that pop up over the surface.
What To Expect At Camp Paranormal
Camp Paranormal is completely different from other PRS events. The idea is to stay on-site and invoke the spirit of a camp retreat - cabin quarters, getting to know like-minded people, tell ghosts stories over a bonfire, etc. It is a paranormal retreat.
You'll be assigned to a cabin. If this is your first time attending a PRS event, don't worry. Most attendees come alone and every one of them walk away from friends. People come from all over the world to share in the experience.
You can check out the schedule of events below. Your stay includes three nights lodging. There's a restaurant on-site. Your cabin has a kitchen. There are pools and many other activities to enjoy when we're not discussing the otherworldly or conducting experiments or taking short trips to check out some of South Carolina's most haunted spots!
