Get out in the back country, or take a hike through history. Either way, Gold Point offers both.

Just 16 miles west of Highway 95 on State Route 774, this historic mining town and its surrounding region is famous for providing a wealth of great terrain for ATV-riding. Your adventure doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down – Gold Point’s got places for camping and offers a few RV hook-ups, too. Explore Indian petroglyphs, or wander the dusty streets while you visit the original post office (now a museum) plus more than 50 original buildings.

Not the camping type? Then rent one of the fully restored cabins in the area. And when you’ve worked up a thirst, knock back a drink or two at the local saloon. You might even run into Sheriff Stone, the local historian. He’d be glad to strike up a conversation with you.
