My hubby found this place online and wanted to see it since we were visiting family in Yuma. We found the road very easily off the highway. About 6 miles in, the pavement turns into the most treacherous stone road we had ever been on! We could not go any faster than 5-10 miles per hour. This should have been... More

Having been really disappointed with the Gold King mine in Jerome, I didn't expect much at Castle Dome. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed looking around the many buildings at Castle Dome. I spent over two hours looking around. Very nice time!

This is about 30 minutes outside of Yuma and the final 10 or so miles are on a well maintained gravel road. This place is pretty unique in that you can handle just about everything. Lots of artifacts and 20 or so buildings in the ghost town. This is cash only and they have limited snacks so come prepared. Great... More

We found this place through a brochure at the Yuma Visitors Center. The lady at the desk said it was worth the drive and by going there we were able to take a different route back to Phoenix too. It's off the beaten path and does have about 10 miles of gravel road so we were glad to not be... More

This place is a bit of a trek. It's about 30 minutes outside of Yuma but our experience there made it worth the drive. Maybe I'm a sucker because I am absolutely fascinated by this part of history but I loved this place. It is cash only so be aware of that. There are 20 or so buildings of this... More

You have to drive along a good, but gravel drive for some time to get to the attraction. But the drive is worth it with great vistas and giant cacti and we saw a roadrunner!! You feel like a pioneer once you get there fun day

Caslte Dome is about 30 miles north of Yuma on US95. The sign for the turn-off is very hard to see, the best way to "see" the sign is after you go past YPG's main gate, and then YPG's Aberdene Road,(both on US95) continue north until you see some "checkered towers' to right, take that road and continue straight ahead...

We stopped in on a road trip through Arizona from Dallas and almost got there too late. The tour guy let us in anyway but said they were closing soon, very nice of him! The ghost town was awesome we loved it and took lots of pictures. We would never have gone down there to find it without the signs... More
