  • Hi, I invite you to visit this ghost town and do the tour into the mine of gold and silver ... really impressed how they work these desperadoes, amazing ... There are some cracks in the rock jutting out into thin air ... brbrbrbrb to see. Beyond that if you continue the way you go to see the Colorado very nice rest area for a walk down to the river.

  • An amazing place, easy access, leaving Las Vegas drive from some 40 minutes, the road is good is easy to find. The city is abandoned with many relics like old cars, furnished and houses a very interesting story behind it. Well worth knowing, the photos there are amazing.

  • It’s worth the side trip if you are headed between Vegas and Laughlin. You can go on a mine tour or rent ATVs and explore more if you’re into that. There are some interesting rock formations on the wa...  more »

  • I'm so grateful for everyone here! My boyfriend and I were stranded at Nelson's Landing because our car battery died, and a nice man named Rick picked us up while we were walking through the hot desert in attempt to hoof it all the way here. The nice people here lent us some jumper cables so were were able to get home safely, a lady there even gave us a couple of free Cokes. After walking through the hot desert these people were really what we needed-- human. I cried because of how afraid I was, and I cried even more at the humanity showed to us. I really can't stress enough how much I appreciate these people. Thank you so much, you deserve the best things in life.
  • Nelson Ghost Town This place was a gold mine and it still is. A photography gold mine! every detail of this little place in the middle of the desert is a picture perfect one. I had the pleasure of going there for my 4rth session a couple of months ago, and i love it. It cost 20 dollars to get the photo permit.THERE ARE A BUNCH OF OLD COOL OLD CARS, and 2 airplanes! take your best camera with you, or even your phone and enjoy...
  • Nest photo shoot location. Love the details they put into making it authentic for all to visit and see. Be careful there is hardly any service or connections out there.
  • Great hidden ghost town a few miles off of the main highway. Alot of old historic vehicles to see, some are rusted and some have been transformed into unique running vehicles. The mechanical artifacts for these vehicles are scattered around this location and it is a very cool sight to see. The cholla cactus garden is also amazing to see and blends in well with the ghost town. Small but very interesting and very remote.
  • Horrible place .way over priced and they don't like native Americans. I would never recommend this place such disrespect in front of a man's family who was only there to purchase water!!! My husband never spoke the whole time he wore a hawk claw on his necklace and the owner started saying it was a rat claw and my husband was a rat boy and he would just have to leave if he didn't like it nothing will be said or done because there is nothing out there . The old man also owner called my husband a variety of names all racist toward native American it was horrible all because the old man couldn't tell a rat foot from a hawk claw. Horrible people to bad they didnt have morals nowadays
