Don't get me wrong, I love Dierke's Lake, a favorite getaway for those who live around Twin Falls, Idaho. It is a great place to go kayaking and fishing and cliff jumping. There are some legendary creepy stories though about Dierke's Lake, and some even creepier things about the water. Here's what might be lurking below.

Glowing Lake Monster

When I first moved here I heard that Dierke's Lake glows in the dark at night. That definitely has to be a glowing monster that lives at the bottom of the lake...maybe.

Slimy Slim Junior

This is like a version of the Loch Ness Monster and the Slimy Slim that lives in Payette Lake. Sharlie may live in Payette, but there might be a junior version living in Dierke's

Water Babies

This ghost story started out of Pocatello, but I can imagine these creatures live in Dierke's too. Kids who grew up in the area swimming in Dierke's really just learned how to become mermaids in the lake.

Toe eating fish

I swear I have gone swimming in Dierke's and things started nibbling on my toes. I am telling myself it was fish and not something darker.


Oh if you ask a few of my coworkers they are convinced that sharks live in Dierke's. I am not sure how they adapted to that water but we aren't talking science here.


I know, Bigfoot is not aquatic, but that doesn't mean he doesn't need a bath or a drink every now and then. I know Bigfoot loves Idaho, he probably loves Dierke's too

What other monsters may be lurking in the lake? I don't know, but I hear you can scuba dive there.

This video makes the lake look like a blast:
