I was out gold prospecting near China Wash and drove through in mid day. Area research indicated about 20 people live here. Very interesting old town with lots of old buildings and equipment the locals have maintained. Everything is prominently marked No Trespassing or Private. It appeared there was a bar or cafe with outdoor tables but it was all... More

Gold Point was recommended to us by some folks in nearby Goldfield. It is about 25 miles south of Goldfield off the highway across a dirt road. Several old buildings and vehicles near an old gold mine. There are only a couple of residents in this little town, and we met one that runs the little bar there. He opened... More

This is one of my favorite place. Reminds me of Wild West movies. Will check this place again in winter. Beautiful old cars. People still live there so be respectful. Also watch out for the hares and quails. Drive as slow as you can so you don't stir dust.

Interesting place, with a lot of old machinery, cars, small houses and such. A lot of mine entrances still exists. This would be a great place to explore more.

We stopped here for lunch and a rest after driving buggies in the desert. Even though the place looked very run down the lunch was good. The Ghost Town was really run down as well. I really would not recommend this place unless you were going through. This is really a ghost town.

I went there with a "Meetup" group. However, there were other groups there, who just sat around and got drunk, disturbing everyone. The bar (the only real entertainment there) continued to serve the drunks, well past their limit. So, the inevitable happened; the drunks went to their RV's and started fighting at 1 a.m. and i'm talking a really loud,... More

My husband and I managed to find Gold Point coming in the back way from Bonnie Clare Mill, passing Hard Luck Castle. It is quite a drive this way, but we were treated to the most spectacular cholla cactus blooms we have ever seen! We finally arrived just after sunset, so didn't have much time to do more than drive... More

It's a fairly long drive but if you're a photographer it's well worth it. Old buildings and vehicles abound and the owner has a bar and bbq facilities that attracts groups from all over. Several old mine shafts surround the place. 50+ buildings, RV parking and camping available, a museum, B&B lodging.... Population 7.
