  • Had an awesome time panning for gold for the first time. Gold Daughters is a great way to learn how to pan and take your time. Lisa was super helpful and friendly teaching us all how it works and giving us tips. Anytime we weren't sure or needed help she was there. It was really nice to work with someone who was enthusiastic and absolutely loved being there. We spent about 3 hours and I honestly could've spent the whole day there. Definitely a must do in Fairbanks!
  • This is the best thing to do in Alaska! Never hesitate to visit this place if you are with children. I went with my three children. They as well as my wife and I really enjoyed panning gold. Staff members were extremely kind and helpful. Especially Lisa was exceptional. She showed us how to pan gold with smile although we couldn't follow it and asked the demonstrations several times. Also, they never give us any emotional burdens to buy the products which can be made by gold you panned. I highly recommend this place.
  • My adult kids and I had so much fun here. Loved panning on the practice dirt piles. Found a nice garnet in the first pan and fine flour gold. The bag of pay dirt had many flakes of gold and garnets. Helpful staff provide instructions on panning and assistance if needed. When we finished they dried the gold and put it in a vial with the garnets. Good fun for kids of all ages including my adult kids.
  • My husband and I decided to stop by here on a free day we had in Fairbanks. I wanted to try goldpanning but didn't think it would be anything spectacular... But man, gold fever is real! We had such a great time, and the ladies that were there explaining everything and teaching us what to do were wonderful. I loved that they let you pan for as long as you want from the piles of dirt that they bring in from the river - you never know what you'll find. The "guaranteed" bag was nice too. We also appreciated that they really want you to practice panning before doing your guaranteed bag, so you know what you're doing beforehand and don't miss out on your gold! Overall, excellent experience. We had a great time and will definitely go back next time we go to Fairbanks!!
  • What an awesome place... you expect a tourist trap with places like this... but you couldn't be more wrong! Took some friends who were visiting and had so much fun it has become our date spot for the wife and I! No pressure, lots of help to get your technique right and make sure you ask about the fossils!
