The Goldfield Ghost Town is wonderful! The vistas that surround it are so beautiful, great for picture taking. Our favorite part was the Saloon. Great place for a cold beer and lunch. The staff at the bar and the local Cowboys made it a great afternoon. So many great old artifacts every where. Love it!

Only had a short time before closing. We did the mine tour which was very educational but not boring. Guide was very knowledgeable. Town itself is worth a stop.

If you are visiting this area, this is a place that you really need to stop. You will feel like you have stepped back in time to the goldmining days of the old west. The town is free to visit, but they have individual attractions that they charge a fee to see or do. One is the train ride, where... More

Lots of activites for the whole family to enjoy. We were there in "off season" so it wasn't crowded, but not everything was open. The employees dressed the part and were very knowledgeable. My 6 year old's favorite activity was "panning for gold."

We had seen this place a few times on our way to Canyon Lake. We stopped in and it was a great time. Everyone is super nice, they had a gun fight and that was worth stopping. Its just fun to walk around and look at all the sites they had. If your in the area , I would stop... More

It's an old west ghost town that was fun for the kids and entertaining for the parents. It is a very nice way to spend a couple-three hours with the family. Very friendly staff, fun activities, scenic surroundings. The is no fee to walk around the town but there are fee's for the different activities/attractions. The guys doing the gallows... More

If you are looking to visit a "tourist trap" ghost town, this would fit the bill. But we knew that before we went and found the attractions interesting (but somewhat pricey, of course). We did the mine tour which was interesting, and although our guide was extremely nice and pleasant she would often continue before the entire group had caught... More
