Overview

Please call for reservations during the warmer months "What you will see here is a remnant town which stood larger than Yuma in 1878. Her weather beaten buildings remain great day trip in the lower Colorado river in an area little changed from the 1800's. The mills stand silent, housing original boiler, stamp mill, and elevator, as if tomorrow they will awaken to the thunderous roar of steel crushing rock. The boardwalks still creak, the church bell rings out, the five saloons just await the story of their last shootout. Over 50 building in 3 areas are now open, with more history being added. April 15 through September you will need to call for hours. October 1st through April 30th we are open 7 days a week.

Thought this would be an interesting place to see. However after driving 10 miles on a washboard dirt road and then finding out it is $15 each to look at a few old buildings it wasn't worth the time. So we decided not to pay...More

The worst part of the visit is the 7 miles of gravel road to get there. When in the area it is a must see. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the atmosphere.

We took the tour thru the mine and it was incredibly beautiful. The colors are fantastic. It will be great to go back in a year or so and see all the changes. The ghost town with all the history. It was a exciting day👍👍

Today I visited Castle Dome Ghost town. Very interesting and well kept. Lots of interesting buildings to visit and see antiques. Not too much walking and you could probably get around in a wheel chair.

This was a great place to visit. It’s a little “off road” but nothing serious, more just an “unpaved” dirt road. $15.00 each entry fee, seemed a little high at first, but once going through everything and seeing how they keep it up, it was...More

A bit of a drive from Yuma, some gravel road travel is required. The site was very informative and educational.At the time of our visit there were about 20 others so you could take your time and read the information and learn of the area.

We were told “this is a must” WELL they were wrong. If you like old buildings and a lot of rusty artifacts this is your place. There is a lot of miner history here and it is displayed very nicely. Getting there they say is...More

To start, if you are going here, be aware there's 8 miles of bad gravel road you have to travel first. Also, if you wanted to view the most impressive part of this, the luminescent cavern, you have to book it well in advance and...More

Sorry I can not answer the question, the tour was closed the day we arrived. They did say a reservation would be a very good idea.

No idea - I'd search Yuma resources or see if Uber or Lyft will give you a quote!
