We never get tired of visiting Bannack State Park- we enjoy special ranger led activities such as star gozing, and musical events held there in season.

Comparable in quality to Bodie, although this is not a ghost town. As a historical marker it is worth visiting to learn about what life was like a century or so ago.

Maybe you could call them on the phone. Someone (not a ghost) is there all day at the building where you pay and buy suveniers.
