Camping trip Lexie Crossroads

When I was a child my parents acquired some land in Franklin County Tn off Lexie Crossroads. It was amazing with a creek and woods. We went there often when I was young.We cut down blackberry bushes and high grass on a flat plateau, with a creek near and hills with a vast amount of woods . We made a camp site and a trail to the creek. The creek was  full of rocks in a spot that had a small little waterfall , so we made it  deeper by throwing out the rocks . We had so much fun doing this. One weekend in the summer we went camping there again and my sister and I wanted to pitch our tent up the hill next to a tree that had fallen that we played on it a lot like it was a gym beam no  hands walking across it , this was our special play time and spot to be free and play plus exploring the creek  which we loved.  So my parents allowed us to place our tent up  there and spend the night however it did not last long once it got dark.  We semi got to sleep but we started hearing things and saw lights, then my sister wanted to leave but  I said it’s to dark and we can’t see to get there. She was absolutely not going to stay there so she left and I stayed which involved a new encounter with the beings , once I was taken  up I do not recall anything else  except at daylight running down to my parents in their camper on the plateau area. They pretty much laughed at us at breakfast and teased us for asking to do something like that staying there and getting scared so I said nothing about it.  I think that was the last time we camped there and I never knew why. Perhaps more than I can recall happened and I suppressed.
