Submitted by witness K. I. on Saturday, February 16, 2002.
Campers hear more nighttime vocalizations at Sugar Pine Campground, on the west side of Lake Tahoe

YEAR: 2001

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August


STATE: California

COUNTY: El Dorado County

LOCATION DETAILS: At the Sugar Pine Campground next to Lake Tahoe.



OBSERVED: It was a clear night. There was a full moon and it was about 10:00. We were camping out in Sugar Pine State Park. All of the sudden, there was a loud whooping noise. It sounded close by. Then, we heard a loud crunching, like branches breaking. It couldn't have been a bear, it was too big. In the morning, we saw some footprints by our tent that were about 12-16 inches long. They were much too big to be a bear's. We still dont know what it was, but we are about 90% sure it was Bigfoot.

ALSO NOTICED: A girl screemed after the whooping

OTHER WITNESSES: My sister and I.

OTHER STORIES: Another person said they saw the Bigfoot cross the road. The wife thought it was a bear.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Full moon, 10:00pm, 40-50 degrees, wind blowing

ENVIRONMENT: pine forest, small creak, lake, hills
