  • This was an unexpected jewel in our ALASKA journey!! Jordan and the wonderful Gold ladies helped us learn how to pan, and we found some beautiful nuggets and garners! Jordan was so gracious, too, to pose with our very own Salmon Ella, our mascot for our most awesome Alaska road trip (driving from NC)! THE FEE SHOULD be $150.00 per hour, therapy rates, because panning is SO relaxing!! But you can pan allllllll day for only $20.00 If you want to!! Thank you so much, Jordan, and our wonderfully helpful guides!!!
  • The staff was helpful and encouraging. Your entrance fee comes with a bag that is guaranteed to have gold in it and there are dirt piles that you can try your luck on. We liked the fact that part of the panning area is open but has a roof and the other part is isn't. Nice to have a choice depending on the weather.
  • First of all, take extra cloths, you might get wet:) I took my daughters to this gold panning facility. They had great experience. We were 4 including a 1.5 yo toddler girl. I didn't want to pan myself, but I didn't mind to get 3 bags of dirt, kids loved to do extra more gold densed dirt for panning :) We were taught how to pan and adviced first to practise with free dirt, which is a huge pile. The stuff was very attentive and kind. One of my daughters was less successful and seemed to lose interest, and thanks to one of the stuff members, she regained her confidence and managed to find enough golden flakes and even a nugget for her new gold locket and necklace. We spent 2 hours there, the time passed quickly . One of the girls , could hardly leave, she would stay much longer. Overall we had positive experience. Thank you!
  • Somehow we missed out on the great experience everyone else mentioned!! There was little help or guidance once we purchased our bags ($20 pp), and we were left pretty much on our own. Kids (10, 12 & 14)left feeling like it was a waste of time and was boring and I left feeling like it was a waste of money. Also, not very family-friendly at all. My husband was NOT allowed to come in and watch the kids and take pictures. In order to enter you MUST purchase a bag of dirt..... he simply wanted to watch the kids sorting through their bags of dirt. We had already spent $80, and by not allowing in another family member to Simply watch, I thought was an extremely poor business practice.
  • Very fun and educational! Jordan was very helpful. A kind and good teacher. Worth every cent.
