  • This small ruin area is interesting as it's masonry ruins v. wooden ruins I am more accustomed to seeing. There are hand written signs indicating the type of structures including the school & bank. 
  • A legitimate ghost town outside of Death Valley, partial structures remain. There are restrooms nearby and an outdoor art museum. Its free and easy to find. Its a short visit, but a great stop if you'...  more »
  • Very cool to see this ghost town with structures still standing. There are some photographs of the original buildings when they were complete. There are also giant art pieces near the visitor's center 
  • Can't believe how many times we have driven up and down hwy 95 and never knew that this was so close. Nice place to stop and walk. Must see the bottle house. Still want to look up where they got all of those bottles. Road is dirt but no problem I did towing a trailer.
  • Plenty of old structures survived. Well worth a side trip of you're in the area. Also, Goldwell Open Air Museum is right there as well.
  • This ghost town is nice. Love the ghost art installation. The day I was there the clouds sucked, not happy with the way the pictures I took came out. Will head the again in winter. Please ensure you have enough water.
  • I absolutely love this place. I have been to ghost towns all over the state of Nevada and this one is the best. I have been here a number of times. So nice absolutely worth the trip and not too far off Highway 95 if you're headed to or from Vegas
  • It's worth the hour drive from Death Valley National Park. Some artifacts prohibit entry, either for safety or preservation. Lots of interesting sites and artwork. If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely revisit.
