Oatman was founded over a century ago as a mining tent camp, and it eventually became a prominent gold-mining center. After the boom, a fire burned much of the town and it has since been turned into an authentic western “living ghost town”, complete with roaming burros and staged gunfights on the weekends. It lies 40 minutes to the south of Bullhead City.
