Buckskins Joe's Frontier Town was situated at the base of the Greenhorn Mountains in beautiful central Colorado was one of the few remaining authentic old west towns in existence. The town was brought to life with hourly gun fights, some historical and some humorous, exciting live entertainment, barnyard animals for the kids, and everything you could imagine in an old west town plus more. John Wayne was shooting movies here in the early 70's, and as recently as 2001 the History Channel was filming a documentary entitled "The Haunted Rockies" on location. The town sits on the edge of the Royal Gorge canyon, and has a mountain gauge train that takes you to the edge to view the Royal Gorge canyon and the famous Royal Gorge Bridge.
Buckskin Joe Frontier Town
Imagine, stepping back into an 1860's frontier town today! Inspired by the original town of Buckskin Joe, the old west explodes to life at Buckskin Joe Frontier Town & Railway. Keeping the feel of the original town, costumed characters roam through the town to greet guests. Watch out and head for cover when gunfights break out throughout the day. The Buckskin Joe Gunfighters perform shows, some which are actual reenactments of gunfights that took place on the Colorado Frontier. The park has a long history of producing award winning family entertainment including saloon and magic shows.
The H.A.W. Tabor Store is the last remaining building from the original town of Buckskin Joe, which was located 2 miles from Alma, Colorado. Transplanted into the heart of Royal Gorge Country, history and fun are melded together to provide visitors with an "edutaining" experience. Antiques dating back to the 1800's enhance the town's authenticity by providing character to the 30 buildings that make up Buckskin Joe.
