Here at the park office we have recently received six unusual reports, all of which have people who visit the park on the hunt for the ever-elusive Irish Fairy known to some as a Leprechaun! From the six stories told to the park staff we might have to agree there may be something out in the park playing tricks on people. We only ask that if you happen to see anything suspicious to please share your experience with the staff, so we can get to the bottom of this! As you start on this adventure and retrace the steps of the individuals you will be free to decide if you believe a Leprechaun has taken up residence at Fort Stevenson State Park.
The fourth sighting occurred late one afternoon by Carl and Erin Mahony while driving through the park. They stated they often drive through the park this time of year and try to keep an eye out for wildlife. On this day they stated they saw something they have never seen before. They mentioned they saw something darting in and out of the evergreen trees near the corner of the campground by the basketball hoop. At first, they thought it was a small bird, but as they got closer, they could make out that it wore green clothes and had an orange beard confirming this might be the same individual from the first sighting. As with the previous account the individual disappeared quickly, without leaving any signs.
To make things more peculiar there was a rainbow which appeared to the south of the basketball court at the coordinates. N 47 35.347 W 101 25.543
