  • Felt the name misrepresented what there is to see here - lots of rusty old trucks and buses. Nothing like a Ghost town nor a mine. Buildings were full of junk. Very disappointing.  more »
  • Went here right before they closed at 5pm, so it was getting dark. The old buildings are very creepy but they also have some very cool old vehicles. Definitely worth the cost to get in.  more »
  • Blast from past. Greated by Gizmo the Cat. Grandson loved old bulldozer. There was a wedding going on.  more »

  • This was a side stop on our road trip and I was pleasantly suprised but how much me and my family enjoyed stopping here. The ghost town is one of the best I have ever been to and the collection of old cars was very interesting! Definitely worth the stop!
  • Very interesting and wonderful place! Lot to see if you are into rusty old cars and spare parts. If you are in Cottonwood or Sedona it's a nice short drive.
  • Different than it used to be. It is an old mine and motor collection now. An old collector has his old trucks, boat motors chainsaws, etc displayed there. In very little time they could get rid of the modern stuff out there like the 2009 auto parts catalog in one of the buildings or the modern skill saw just hanging out randomly.
  • Great views, enjoyable stories about the place. Great people to talk to. Definitely worth the trip here
  • Quite a menagerie of trucks, mining equipment as well as ghost town. Don who started the attraction passed away in 2016...his family has taken it over and are working on adding some new ideas. Kids will like the burros and chickens.
