    Re: Calico Ghost Town, Southern California

    Great TR! My family and I went to Calico as a side trip when we were heading home from Vegas. We got there an hour before it closed, but it was so awesome and interesting, especially if you've been to Knott's before and know the history of the two places.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    my first trip I did to the US we did a 14 day bus trip from LA to NYC and teh very first place we stopped was Calico!!! Awesome place, great time. When we were there they had a glogging (dance) competition happening, so it was really busy. Well worth going and seeing

    I can't believe that I live so close to Calico and yet have never ventured out there. I never realized how cool it was....until now. I've always wanted to go there in Feb when they have a Civil War reenactment. They also have camping there and they've been advertising an event in October. Maybe I'll go then. Thanks for the pics!

    Thaks for a great trip report and the pictures. It can get hot and is a good workout. I love stopping for old fashioned candy and was last there on a trip from Newberry Springs.

    BLM Calico Early Man Site, Barstow Field Office, Bureau of Land Management California
    To the east is the Early Man site where they are doing archeological digs. I went there on a college field trip over 20 years ago and it is very interesting but the winds can get pretty strong.

    I love the photos you took and it makes me want to go back some day. Thank you.

    Re: Calico Ghost Town, Southern California

    I visited around New Year's of 2008 on the way to Vegas and thought it was a great little roadside attraction to stop at. It was much bigger than I expected and my favorite part had to have been the mystery shack as well as the cave.

    Thanks for the Trip Report... brings back a few memories!
