Long Lakes Creatures
There are several lakes called Long Lake in the USA.
At least two of them are said to have monsters.
Long Lake State Park
In 1993 a
Milwaukee newspaper carried an article about a monster sighting in Long Lake by
several campers from the Milwaukee area.They said it was dark,serpent like and had an undulating movement causing waves to
hit the shore.
In the Summer of 1994, Beth Quinn was vacationing on
Long Lake when she witnessed a strange
sight. Quinn said that "I saw a big black swan type sea monster. It had a
dragon type face." She was close enough to the creature to clearly see
that it was not a swan or a duck - in fact it wasn't like anything she'd ever
seen before. She ran into a nearby cabin to fetch her companions . When she
came back out with the rest of the group, the creature had already disappeared
back under the surface of Long Lake.
In 1998 a woman reported seeing a huge dark object
several hundred feet off shore. It moved with a violent undulating motion which
sent waves rolling over a pier and then crashing into the shore.
Four years later a couple who were staying in the
Long Lake state park stopped at the Din's Garage, Dundee for some ice. They
told the proprietor that they spotted an eel like monster about 28 feet long swimming
along the shore of the state park beach. It was dark brown with light brown
spots. It gradually submerged out of sight.
A 3 foot long salamander like creature was reported
crossing Highway 67 that runs along Long
Lake. I have no date for this but it was speculated it was a baby lake monster.
could find no recent reports but something was causing a stir in Long Lake State
Long Lake Massachusetts.
In 2018 two local scientists claimed they saw a long-necked aquatic animal rising above the
surface of Long Lake in Littleton, Massachusetts.
Dr.Timothy Ahearn and Dr, Lawrence Millman, were
boating along the shores of the lake around 11 PM when they saw a large
serpent-like form rise out of the water. The creature stared at them briefly
and then arched its back and submerged.
“It looked like your classic Loch Ness Monster, “
Millman said. “Or descriptions I’ve read of Lake Champlain’s creature, Champy,
and I would have thought I imagined it, except that Tim saw it too.”
It rose about five feet above the water and had a snake-like body and a head that
resembled some sort of reptilian otter.
Dr. Ahearn, who lives on the lake, has seen a giant
water scorpion just below the ice. Eels, black water snakes and an unusually
large snapping turtle have also been seen in the lake over the years.
A legend among the local indigenous people the Nashobah
talks of a of a lake creature known as the Ap’chinic, although that was
described more like an octopus.
the one hand the lake is quite shallow so not the usual depth for a lake
monster,on the other scientists are unlikely to be involved in a hoax. What do
