CerroGordo is a high desert mining camp in the mountains, near Saline & Death Valley National Park. This place requires a high clearance vehicle to access on a bumpy county road. The whole town is private property, so you can drive through the town without permission (since it is a public road). To tour the buildings, park and walk around you have to make an appointment with the owner. The Caretaker can show you around if you have a prior arrangements. They ask for a small cash donation. A bunkhouse can also be rented for the night.
