A mining ghost town off the grid amidst breathtaking desert beauty and utter peace. What a gem – – must experience! Loaded with memorabilia. Brett gave a fabulous tour. Phone to confirm driving directions or you'll wonder about heading into the desert on a dirt road...BYO lunch and allow time to hike if you're able. Unforgettable!

We were the only people there with exception of our guide, Gene. So we got a private tour. Very interesting. There were many antiques and things to see from back in the day. Definitely worth the fee of $15. Be sure to stop if you are in the area.

Spent the day at Robson's Ranch and Mining Camp today and it was great! Had a blast with my buddies and business partners shooting trap off the new shooting deck. We also had a great lunch and the old western town is so cool. A real piece of American history. The staff was amazing and treated us to a first... More

We had our alumni reunion out here and it was fantastic. These guys went above and beyond and did it with a smile. The location was clean, the cowboy games were a blast and food was great. Our clients loved the horseback riding. The saguaro forest is breathtaking. Gregger and his team made us feel like we were important. I... More

We had a wonderful adventure walking through mining and old west history. We had great guide named Woody that seemed comfortable with the old west. We were amazed by the amount of antiques and their condition. There were quite a few old vehicles, all in running condition. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.

This mining camp is open again to the public. It is an amazing look into mining life in early Arizona. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He answered all the questions we had, and had a wealth of information to share. The artifacts they have are amazing and varied. This is a rare jewel and not to be missed.

We spent an enjoyable couple hours learning about what life was like for gold miners. The motel burned down a year or so ago, so there are no accommodations and they haven't reopened the restaurant, but the manager gave us and another couple a personal tour or the camp. He was very personable and knowledgeable about camp life and all... More
