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

Gold King Mine has something for everyone from mining equipment to old cars. Did not see any ghost but I was not the at midnight. Bring your camera and take pictures of things that were used in the past.

This is not a ghost town and not really a mine either, nor is it history. It is a junk yard. There are tons of junky looking old cars and a few buildings with junk just thrown in them. There is no theme and no...More

If you're in town or passing thru, this is a nice side stop. The price is right at $5 and you can wander around old mining equipment, cars/trucks even an old power generating system. The gift shop is nice as well

I personally can't answer that. But you can call the souvenir store I believe and they can answer that question. You can go to the website for the info.
