  • I really liked this place. Nice self guided tour. Not crowded the day we were there. Employee willing to give tours if asked.

  • We visited the second week of September so no park employees were around. We had the place to ourselves but they did have brochures and maps to help with our visit. Interesting area to walk around.....  more

  • Interesting ghost town located a few miles off the main road. About 14 buildings from the mining town that used to process ore, silver and gold. Nice walking path allows you to traverse the site with minimal effort. Can easily see it all in under an hour.
  • We drove 3 1/2 hours from Twin falls only to see the gate locked and not open. Kind of disappointing when google says it’s open at 9am. If you continue up the road past the main gate, you’ll come to a bridge that allows foot traffic. Such a fun place to explore and see how people lived. I didn’t see anything on any website either stating the place would be closed. Maybe that should be updated also.
