Gammons Gulch Movie Set and Museum

Trip Cost $30

Please read Covid-19 protocols below.

Take a trip back in time to the days of the old west as you walk down the streets of an old west town. 

Gammons Gulch, a western town and movie set, was built by Jay and Joanne Gammons.  It includes a saloon, blacksmith shop, jail, assay office, church, gallows, barber shop, and much more.  The buildings are not just facades; they are actual buildings with vintage furniture, dishes, lightning, tools, etc from the territorial era.  It is truly a museum. 

Gammons Gulch has served as a setting for may western movies, western themed weddings and other events, with the surroundings and settings meeting the specifications of the actual decor of the time.  This is a great opportunity for Black and White Photography.

We will start with a guided tour of the town after which you'll be able to take photos of the interior and exterior settings at your leisure.  Pictures may be taken for personal use only.  

There is no food served at Gammons Gulch so bring water and a picnic lunch.  There is a nice picnic area or you can eat you lunch in the saloon.  

It is highly suggested that you wear closed-toed shoes. brimmed hats and use sunscreen. 

A little imagination is all you need to complete this memorable "step back in time" experience.  You'll marvel at the detail and authenticity that went into the building of this movie set and museum. 

Meet at the Camera Club at 8:15 AM for instructions and departure at 8:30 AM  to Gammons Gulch. Please bring your signed GVR waiver form to give to the guide.

If you need to cancel please contact the Field Trip Facilitator at philr@iname.com. We may have people on the wait list to take your place.  

Due to confirmation required for the actors there will be no refunds after February 15th.


There will be no carpooling. You must drive your own car. You must wear a mask while on this field trip. All safety protocols will be practiced while at Gammons Gulch.  We will split into two groups while at Gammons Gulch and  lunch will be staggered so one group will eat at 11:30am and the second group no later than 12:30 pm.

Because the Camera Club is still not officially open, GVR is requiring that every person participating in the club's field trips sign a waiver absolving GVR of any liability.  Please bring your signed waiver with you when we gather for the trip. GVR is requiring that we provide them with the signed waivers as well as a list of field trip attendees.
