Yuma’s #1 tourist destination!

The “3:10 To Yuma” stops here. Take a walk through a big piece of Old West History where the Southwest’s most hardened criminals were once locked up.

Despite an infamous reputation, written evidence indicates that the prison was humanely administered, and was a model institution for its time. The only punishments were the dark cells for inmates who broke prison regulations, and the ball and chain for those who tried to escape. Come experience this fascinating slice of Arizona history. The park offers a museum with exhibits, a gift shop, video presentation, picnic area, and restrooms.

Voted USA Today’s Best Haunted Destination #2!

Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park in Arizona has been a hub of paranormal activity. Reports include spirits of inmates on death row, a woman wandering the banks of the nearby Colorado River looking for her drowned daughter, and a small child in a red dress who pinches passers-by.
