This abandoned amusement park in Catskill, New York was once the popular Carson City and Indian Village.
With gunfights, train robberies, and a recreated Old West town, this Catskills area attraction opened in 1958 and cashed in on the popular Wild West amusement park trend of the time. On the grounds, patrons could also visit a recreated Indian village and experience entertainers like the Big Mountain Family, an Apache family who performed worldwide. With the decline in Catskill tourism, the Carson City & Indian Village ended up closing in 1997.
Today, it is private property, but some of the buildings remain. The owner was kind enough to grant permission to enter and take these photos and according to him, there are plans to reopen the amusement park with the same western theme, but with a more modern touch.
