  • Small side of the road attraction offering just the education and experience we were looking for! After a brief video, staff walked us through the basics of gold panning before we shoveled our own rock mixture to try out hand at sorting and panning in a cold water stream.
  • Had a great time learning to pan, very friendly staff and the tour of the old mining equipment was interesting and fun for adults and kids
