    This Old West movie set and museum chock full of interesting items should be on everyone's "must see" list. High point of the visit was owner Jay Gammon's hospitality. He met us as we got out of the c...  more »

    We arrived a little early and Jay met us in the parking lot. We were the only ones on the tour...just my wife and I and Jay. But Jay led the tour as though this was normal. He gave us the history of t...  more »

    Really enjoyed our tour of Gammons Gulch. Jay is a great host and his facility is really interesting. A 5 star experience for us.

    By far one of the best buys around. For $7 we walked back into the old west and saw many antiques and props used in some of the most famous westerns. The Guide Jay has been doing this since he first starred in Rio Grand at I believe the age of 5 or 7. His father before him worked on sets and collected memorabilia and western attire. There are also several old vehicles and items from the days of the Gansters like Dillinger and Bonnie and Clyde. Buildings are not just a store front...you can go inside an old jail, blacksmith shop, mercantile etc. This is a must see!!!!

    About 12 miles north of Benson, Arizona is a place missed by most tourist, and that is a shame as it is delightful, and the proprietor is an interesting character that not only believes in the 'Old West', but relishes in describing it to all that venture out to the property. I met Mr. Gammon, as you may, if you take the short trip into the desert mountains to visit the town; and yes, it is a town, be it a Ghost Town, or a Movie Set Town, or be it both, which it is. There are a complex mixture of old, new, reproductions, originals, that span the mid-1880's to the 1930's and then some within this working movie production complex. Gammon has put together a place on earth where those wanting to film a Western Movie may, or where those that want to become 'hitched' (married) can do so in the comforts of the 1880's saloon, complete with banjo and piano music, tasteful 'R' rated old west picture, and checkered tablecloths, all while being surrounded by history and movie greats like 'Dean Martin', and 'Rex Allen'. Had birthday party there, and it was fun and different for those that have never seen the place. SeniorCitizenLocalWeb has a great write-up with GPS turn by turn instruction, including the area's speed traps. Give the place a try, spend two to three hours, and note that the cost of the personal, and very delightful and historic tour is less than the cost of a hamburger.
