      This is a private concession that has been built to look like a western ghost town. Most of the buildings and all of the artifacts and old vehicles were placed in this location. It is a memorable place for photography with dramatic views of the Eldorado Canyon area. Across the highway from the "ghost town" is the mill site of the famous Techatticup mine. The operators of this attraction also offer canoe and kayak rentals on the nearby Colorado River.

      If you go:
      The paved road to the east of the town of Nelson ends at a view point of the Colorado River and you can see what's left of Nelson's Landing which was a historic river port. There are several mines in the area and there is gravel road that winds through the mountains and eventually reaches US-95. Be sure to always carry water when exploring this area.
