Gold Mining and Panning for gold activity

What's the best gold mining/panning company to do this activity with kids aged 11 & 13?

Looking for best all-around experience....anywhere in the Black Hills.

Thanks.

Where in Custer SP?

As we will be touring the Northern Black Hills all the way through Devil's tower and Spearfish areas, any good recommendations there?

Gold panning demonstration at 9 am and 1 pm at Custer SP.

Broken Boot in Deadwood

Homestake in Lead

Have only seen these advertised- have not done them personally.

I believe the gold panning in Custer State Park is held at the Peter Norbeck Visitor Center.
