Great little Ghost town. Gift stores, Mammoth restaurant, Old west reenactments, train ride around the property, several camp spots for RVs/horse trailers with your horse. They also have horses there to ride (must pay for this).

My reunion group stopped at the Goldfield Ghost Town as part of a tour. It is very interesting. The restaurant was pretty good and just like a saloon in the old west. Nice place to visit.

The pic itself I think was about $40-45, but I got copies (parents) as well as a very western frame. (Weathered wood, barbed wire and a horse shoe). So the actual cost was kind of lost in the total, lol. I was on a roll... More
