Visitors from around the world come to Calico each year to experience a real ghost town originally settled in the 1880s.A hive of activity for the adventurous at heart - the park hosts the Mystery Shack- a crooked house where water runs uphill, two...more

If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place. It is a replica of a ghost town. There are four original buildings left in use. The town has burned down several times.
There is a fee to enter the park, and a fee...More
Sad. You pay a decent entry fee to just walk through some fake-old buildings, each of which is a shop. Anything (gold panning, a small train that quickly goes through a fake mine, etc.) is to be paid extra. The Starbucks coffee was pretty much...More
If you love history of the old west and a fun day you can't go wrong. This place is located on the side of a mountain, so you will get some exercise also. The realism put into everything really makes this a must stop off...More
Thought it would be interesting to stay at a Ghost Town on Halloween. Thankfully it was uneventful.

We spent a hour or so here and had...More
After seeing the impressive ghost town of Ryolite, we decided to visit Calico as well. What a disappointment! You pay 15 dollar each to visit a set of tacky gift shops, which have been built in a sort of gold rush fashion. Maybe it was...More
We stopped here for a break whilst driving to LA, we didn’t pay to get in, didn’t see anyone to give money to so we parked up & walked into town. It’s not a big place but does give you some idea of what it...More
It was an enjoyable visit. We went as a couple and felt that it was more geared up for families. Coming from England the silver mining was of interest. We would have liked to see more reading material detailing the history.
Definitely a fun place...More
