Visitors from around the world come to Calico each year to experience a real ghost town originally settled in the 1880s.A hive of activity for the adventurous at heart - the park hosts the Mystery Shack- a crooked house where water runs uphill, two...more

I’ve driven by the turnoff to Calico at least fifty times and never token it until this July. It certainly would have been a lot cooler had I stopped in November. I am sorry it took me so long to stop; this place is really...More
On some level this is something of a tourist trap. Calico is an actual ghost town, but it has been somewhat Disneylandified. Still, the town has a fascinating history in a part of California that people usually drive through on the way to Las Vegas....More

If you love history of the old west and a fun day you can't go wrong. This place is located on the side of a mountain, so you will get some exercise also. The realism put into everything really makes this a must stop off...More
Thought it would be interesting to stay at a Ghost Town on Halloween. Thankfully it was uneventful.
Stayed at the campground. Some sites are better then others. Most of the recreation in the area centers around Off Highway Vehicles (OHV) all of the riders were...More
I was surprised at how neat it actually was... lots of old, historic buildings and replicas, explore a silver mine, ride a short railroad, food not too expensive, free entrance but pay for individual things like railroad, mine, and train. It reminded me of Knott's...More
