Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Not only is Buckskin Joe Frontier Town the largest Western-style theme park in the region, but it's also an authentic ghost town that was moved here from 100 mi away. Such famous films as True Grit and Cat Ballou were shot in this place, which vividly evokes the Old West, especially during the re-created gunfights and hangings that occur daily. Children love the horse-drawn trolley rides and gold panning, while adults appreciate live entertainment in the Silver Dollar Saloon.
