The Devil Worshippers of the NJ Palisades

In summer 2004 I received emails from 4 different individuals telling me that they had seen figures in robes dancing in the woods of the NJ palisades. They gave me the specific location, and told me that they had only seen these robed figures at night. Late at night. I identified the location easily on a map, and checked it out. I found all the things they said I would find, including a strange doll made out of duct tape, a tv with strange symbols on it, and a table with a pentagram on it.

The devil worship grounds are located in the Palisades, near the NY state border. There are no houses, no businesses and no place to park for nearly a mile. The woods where they are located are part of a tract of undeveloped land 1 mile wide and 3 miles long. It borders a Boy Scout Camp so there are dozens of trails. It appears part of the land is public, but the part where the devil worshipping occurs is private property. The owner is interested in building large mansions, but the obstacle is getting power, cable and phone lines brought out, as well as connected to the local sewer line.





I was convinced that someone was doing something in the woods here, but who and what? And why? Clearly someone put these things here. Is it a real satanic worship/cult activity? Or is it kids playing around? I have seen evidence of Wicca activity in these woods, but not satanic activity. I asked if the police had heard any reports of strange activity and they said no, but the officer made the odd statement that he would think it was real rather then kids because it was so far from anything that no kids would likely be bothered to go to the trouble to get to that spot. Not sure I agree or not…

  1. There is nothing in those pictures that points to Satanism. The pentacle is actually a protection symbol and it also represents the four elements – earth, air, fire and water. It looks to me like you’ve found someone’s altar but it doesn’t mean Satanism was involved at all.

      I’ve found evidence of Wiccan activity in the Palisades before. I wonder if this could be more of the same.


    • The pentacle, though clearly associated with paganism, or, as in the case of reversal, satanism is far older than the modern religion of Wicca (1950’s). In fact early Christians used the symbol. Even animal sacrifice isn’t necessarily satanic.
