    Until recently I was a Happy Camp resident. Happy Camp is a real town in the Klamath National Forest only twenty miles south of the Oregon state line. FYI … there are not a lot of people missing from Happy Camp. This film is fiction only. In 1976 a six-year-old boy, Willie Cook, was kidnapped in Happy Camp, most likely in retaliation… then later found murdered. This movie is bringing up very traumatic memories for the people of Happy Camp who remember this tragic kidnapping, and they are offended by the film. I lived in Happy Camp for 13 years and really loved the place, and made lots of friends who are still my friends even though I’ve moved elsewhere now. There’s absolutely no record of hundreds of people disappearing from Happy Camp or the forest nearby. Happy Camp is a decent small town full of hard-working and kind people. It is 64 miles from Highway 5 on a winding river road (Highway 96) . . . stop by and visit sometime. You’re not likely to disappear despite what this film suggests. It is a great place for rafting, camping, gold prospecting, and swimming holes in clean, clear creeks.
