Eldorado Canyon is located approximately 45 miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip.

Eldorado Canyon is a one of a kind destination like nothing you ever seen. During the 1800’s, Eldorado Canyon was a thriving Mining Community, home to one of the largest producing Gold Mines in Southern Nevada.

The crossroads of Eldorado Canyon, the Colorado River & Black Canyon is one of the greatest true Wild West places of all times which consists of numerous documented facts and Historical Expeditions. Because of its remoteness in the 1800’s it has earned a reputation as  one of the most lawless places throughout the west.

For Hundreds of years Indians, Spaniards, Early Explores such as Jedediah Smith 1826 & 1827, the Ive’s Expedition 1858 & eventually Steamboats  stopped here to load and unload supplies in the ruggedness of Black Canyon. It is here where two Indian Nations did battle, a Military Outpost will be established and one of Nevada’s richest Goldmines was discovered.
