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.

The Castle Dome Ghost Town is at the end of a pretty rough road, but was well worth the drive. It was $10 per person to get in. The kids had a blast.

Everyone in our party loved this restoration of an old mining town. Strategically placed volunteers in authentic garb answer questions and give a genuine flavor to the trip. It is nearly an hour outside of Yuma, but worth the trip. We packed sandwiches and ate...More
