  • Great experience! The town is very well preserved and so many pieces of history to see in the buildings. The kids were very interested in everything, especially the visitor center.
  • Going in from 200 there is a really nice scenic overlook. You have to stop you can see different mountain ranges, I loved seeing the mission mountains. The ghost town has out houses and pay with envelope system so don't forget cash. Three dollars per adult. No food there so bring snacks. There's a scavenger hunt for kids so make sure to stop at the visitor center first to get that for your kids to do. They get a little prize at the end when they turn it back in. Be careful walking down my son tripped on a rock and fell on his face.
  • Tons of fun for anyone, easy short walk from the parking lot to the town. Small gift shop and plenty of informative placards. Leashed Dogs welcome!
  • Well done. Clean and neat. Took the continuation of the road down for a white knuckle ride back to I 90. Great views on the way out
  • Close to Missoula and one of the best preserved Ghost Towns in Montana. An excellent day trip if you're in the Missoula area, or if you're doing the Ghost Town loop; Garnet, Bannack, and Virginia & Nevada City.
