We stopped here to check out the old abandoned mine. A real treasure trove of old cars, trucks, and tools. Pretty kitschy but a really fun way to spend an hour or two. Loved it.

We stopped here and our grandson had a ball. Unfortunately you can only pan for gold when the owner is there. We visited off season so we were told that was the reason. The gift shop is a little high priced. There is no charge...More
