Undercover among the spirits: Investigating Camp Chesterfield - Investigative Files
Skeptical Inquirer, March, 2002 by Joe Nickell

Dubbed "the Coney Island of spiritualism," it has been the target of many exposes, notably a book by a confessed fraudulent medium published in 1976. A quarter century later I decided to see if the old deceptions were still being practiced at the camp; naturally my visit was both unannounced and undercover.
