Cleator, AZ (a Ghost town in Yavapai County) does not make the top ten places to visit in AZ, but in my opinion is one of the most unique places in this state.
I like stopping at Cleator on my way to Crown King for a refreshing beverage- and to get acquainted with the “locals”. The last time I passed through and asked how many people live there- it was 5. I always feel welcome here- and they are known for making anyone feel right at home. I wanted to share some images I’ve taken there- like the Cleator Yacht Club Pics. Yes- they really do have a Yacht Club.
What I love most about visiting are the authentic people that live there. You could only imagine how much slower the pace is. You walk into the bar and no one is on their phone- they actually talk to eachother. It’s fun to watch the expression on people’s faces when they first walk in because they don’t know what to expect. It really is like walking back in time.
