We went here two weeks ago with 14 others including 6 children and everyone had a great time!! Superstition Mountains are a beautiful backdrop to this Ghost Town, and there are plenty of shops, rides and places to eat or snack . A FUN PLACE !! Rides and tours are reasonably priced. You can combine three attractions for one price.... More

Short day trip from Phoenix up to Goldfield. Rustic ghost town with lots of touristy shops for gifts and snacks. Short train ride around the property. Reptile house. Food at Mammoth Saloon and a short zipline experience as well. Everything is ala carte, so you pick what you want to do.

This place was way too crowded to be a ghost town. Lots of shops, more of a tourist trap then anything. I was very disappointed. The mining tour was alright, but turns out it was not even a real mine. Just made for the tour. I do not reccomend

Most ghost towns, like the Calico Ghost town in California, are remote, while this one was but a 1/2 hour out of Phoenix. And so there are lots of people to accompany any "ghosts". But I found it worthwhile for a 2-3 hour visit. There are some pay attractions, 5-6 shops and some museums (town history, and retired Bordello). I... More

Visited Goldfield with our 9 and 10 yr. old granddaughters. The highlight of the visit was our two hour jeep tour through the Tonto National Forest. Our tour guide was Glenn. He was terrific! Glenn was very knowledgable about the different cacti. Even cut one open so we could taste it. He shared a lot of information about the Superstition... More

After travelling to Sedona for many years to visit with my son and dtr-in-law, we decided to stop here after landing in PHX. What a great decision! This place was so fascinating. Loved the mystery house, gold-mine tour and the train-ride with all the information about the area and about the legends of the Superstition Mtns. Highly recommend this attraction.

The saloon had the worst food and service I have ever had. The manager wouldn't even talk to me about my concerns. The place was JUNKY and overpriced.

If you like old western places this is a fun little stop. Multiple buildings, a restaurant, a general store, horseback and/or jeep rides. Free parking/entry.

Visiting from Utah to see family in Gilbert. Just a short drive to this fun place. Just in the shadows of the Superstition Mountains. Fun shops. Old cowboys walking the streets.
