Maybe so, but you won't win friends here by stepping on toes. Some are very protective of their favorite shooting grounds even if they are trashed. Do your homework and shoot/post it. Name dropping is generally disliked here. No one here can predict what security will be like on a given day. Lots of times it's you who makes or breaks it.

If I want to visit a site the last thing I do was put up a public viewable post -before- I went to it. The internet spiders never sleep. There are up to dozens searching these pages at any given time.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

UPDATE: I visited with the help of some local intel last weekend. Not much has changed. Super easy to get in and avoid security. Every building is fucking trashed but what else is new? Still better than most of what we have here in CA.

PS - Thanks to local dudes who assisted!

I went for the first time late May with a buddy. It was overwhelming. I think my favorite parts of the campus are the church and the school bus.

decay is one thing. Vandalism and shitty graffiti is a whole different story.

Hey guys I'm new to the Urbex Community. Once I found out there was a community of people doing this type of thing, I was very intrigued.
Last week I went on my first Urbex expedition, and I went to Forest Haven at night. I did my research on the building, found the best to get into the facility, and my friend and I went. I would prefer to go during the day, especially it's my first time going, but I have a busy schedule and I was available that night. When we cut through the forest we found some random building, I don't know if it was part of the facility. But it was cool nonetheless. We also saw the hanging face mask from the previous explorers, super cool to see something like that. During our expedition, we ran into 3 other groups, and they were loud asf. I thought we were supposed to be sneaky in the facility. One group walked down the main road, kicked rocks, and played music while having their light on. I was so scared when I saw them from a distance because I thought they were guards. I wanted to explore 2 other buildings, but my friend got scared. He promised me we'll come back to explore the admin building and the church. I'll keep you guys updated on that.
But I think I'm addicted to that feeling I had while exploring the unknown. I think about that experience everyday ever since I left. I plan on exploring more, and just a heads up. I don't vandalize, I simple document and take photos. I hope maybe one day I'll be able to explore with some experienced explorers so that I can learn to be a better Urbex explorer.

PS... I apologize for the lack of pictures and the picture quality. I was lost in the experience, I used my iPhone, and it was at night. Promise I'll take better pics.

I recommend posting to flickr and sharing with the bbcode option. This has been the easiest in my experience.

Ahh Forrest haven, my first explore back in 09. You could just drive right up to all the buildings and no one said anything. Sucks it’s all destroyed from what you guys are saying.
