The town was the site of one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada and one of the biggest mining booms in state history. The community called Nelson was named for Charles Nelson, a camp leader who was slain in his home, along with four other people, in 1897 by the renegade Indian, Avote

Best Canyon Ride

We absolutely life’s everything about our El Dorado Canyon ride and god mine tour. Alisha and Sherman had the most upbeat personalities making the trip fun and entertain. We rode razr’s approximately 35 miles through the canyon. Then had an lunch back at headquarters. And lastly, we got to tour an old gold mine. I would definitely recommend booking this tour! 10 out 10.

This tour was by far the best money spent!! Our guide Sherman was knowledgeable of the mine the area and terrain. The ATV tour was great but the gold mine experience was something we will never forget! It was so cool and the Eldorado ranch property was so neat to see! There is so many awesome things to see. It was the best day of our vacation! I definitely would recommend everyone try it!

We had a party of 6 and all of us really enjoyed this trip. Alisha and Sherman (our guides) were wonderful. The ride was scenic and fun while the tour of the mine was very interesting. This is a must do for all ages.

Great fun in a Razor. Super tour guides. Best excursion of its type. Highly recommended. Interesting town where you meet. Old gold mining town with lots of artifacts. Maybe you'll catch feeding time for the local roadrunner - beep beep!
