Visited on our 36th Anniversary. Enjoyed the gold mine tour which cost 15$. The drive there was very scenic. Don’t forget to drive extra 10 minutes to see the Colorado River. Lots of old antique cars to see. Say hi to Cali the friendly cute doggie, which was my most enjoyable thing there. Family owned and very friendly. Watch out for the rattled snakes.

It was a sight to see. I loved the picture taking ops, except the heat prevented me from wanting to explore more than just a few minutes at a time outdoors. The family that lives there were friendly.

Great place to visit. There are LOTS of old vehicles and a few planes to see. Excellent photo op. Folks inside the store were super friendly and the trinkets they sell are reasonable priced. Well worth a visit.

DO NOT RECOMMEND!! My family and I drove 30+ hours from Michigan to see this for we are very interested in this type of history as well as being major car fans. We came here just for pictures and a little education but were instead greeted with nasty signs saying “GET OUT!” And “Do not stop!” We were very disappointed especially since their Facebook says “Always open” when they most definitely are not. We were also getting dirty looks from multiple people who live here. This in itself is disappointing since the meaning of “Ghost town” is abandoned and uninhabited by people which it certainly is not. Very very disappointed and offended. If i could give zero stars, I absolutely would

We didnt get to explorer as much as I had like but that's just another reason to go back. Beautiful ride to get there. So if you looking for a cheap day of beautiful views take a little road trip out of vegas and check this awesome place out. And if you keep on traveling down the road you'll hit a cool spot to check out the Colorado river.
