“Memories”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Driving up the Bonanza Creek road is a pleasant outing and brings back childhood memories of the time my father mined there. We lived in a small group of cabins making up our camp and in the quiet evenings you could hear #4 Dredge clunking away as it mined the creek bed dumping the rocks out making the tailing piles. Today the dredge is an historic site and if you wish to pan for gold, Claim 33 is open for business during the summer season.

Was on tour and had a wonderful time touring the dredge and panning for gold. Didn't get any but fun.

“Bonanza Creek - see where gold was first found in Dawson City!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

My 13 year old son and I went here. Very informative signs along the trail. We were disappointed that none of the audio was working on the signs. The trail was well-groomed with lots of trees and brush. It was great to see the location of the first gold find in Dawson City.

The trail is easy - flat and level. There is a small portion that is wheelchair accessible but not for the full trail.

“NO Gold!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Lol! I think the previous generation might have combed throught this area fairly thoroughly. However, there is still gold in these hills, so it is fun to try and find some.

“Peaceful Natural Environment”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Went with a very informative guide who gave great stories and background of this gold panning creek. Some present day gold mining still going on in this creek. Some large and some small.
