Camp Lulu

Camp Lulu was a camp for girls that is said to have had a deranged counselor who raped and killed a few of the girls he was supposed to be caring for (or so the story goes). The camp shut down after these killings took place and the property has been abandoned since. Those who have gone on the property at night have said they could hear girls crying. There is a warning that the person who owns the property wants to help the souls of the girls who were killed and will shoot anyone who trespasses on the property.

Is Camp Lulu True?

There are a few ghost stories across the nation that have similar stories to Camp Lulu in Brownsville, TX.

Another is the story of Camp Windigo, where a camp counselor went crazy and hung three girls in a barn and drowned another three girls in a tub before she killed herself.

There is not a lot of solid proof that any of these camps had such a tragic ending to them. Perhaps they were inspired by the true horror that happened in 1977 in Oklahoma.

The convict was arrested but later acquitted of the murders and the case remains open today.
