We arrived at 8am, opening time. We were the only ones visiting at this time. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly, nice man. He gave us some history, answered some questions and sent us on our adventure.
When we arrived my camera died. Brand new batteries. I went through 6 batteries before I gave up for awhile. He said this happens often and some say that ghosts drain batteries to get the energy. Once we left the main building at the front my camera suddenly started working again. This went on and on, off and on around certain buildings. It was very weird. Several times I heard voices, though I could not quite understand what was being said. There were 5 of us total and we were all together, so I know I wasn't hearing them. No one else had these experiences, but no one else in our group really believes in this sort of thing either.
The buildings are great. Left as though people just walked away from them one day and left a lot of belongings. Chair frames, bed frames, bottles, etc. just left behind through the decades. Some buildings you cannot walk through as they are really falling down and would be dangerous, but there are plenty that you are allowed to walk through.
If you go during the hot months be sure to bring plenty of water and hit the place early in the morning. I would say a fall visit would be much better. Also, wear good shoes. Lots of walking and soft sand in areas.
The cost is $10 per person and they only accept cash, no CC or Debits.
