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

This was sooo fun! Totally worth every penny. You'll get an experience like no other! The views you get to see are breathtaking and ride around on the ATV was really fun! The gold mine experience and history you get to learn is really cool. I don't know anywhere else you'd get to do that. Thanks for making our trip special!

First and foremost, we want to give high-praises and appreciation to our tour guide ALISHA!! Our tour was on Saturday, October 3, 2020 (celebrating Tammy’s 53rd birthday). Alisha was very personable, attentive to our group, and extremely knowledgeable of the Mine history - that tour was awesome! She was humorous and very friendly. We also want to give ALISHA and SHERMAN high-praises on the ATV guided tour, this excursion was THEE BEST RIDE ALL HANDS DOWN!!

We had a blast! Great trail terrain, photo opportunities, and nature/wildlife sightings, and our tour guide Sherman was awesome! The gold mine tour was very interesting and a great way to cool off with natural air conditioning! Compared to my other Vegas excursions, Eldorado Canyon was by far the best BANG FOR MY BUCK$! The equipment was also clean and smelled great, which is typical with used helmets and equipment. It made me feel safer, in spite of the COVID 19 pandemic. Thanks again!
