After a 3.5 (ish) travel up the gravel road we reached the Mine which itself is neat. There are multiple little cabins and buildings around the property from the Goldrush. It was raining pretty good when we went so we were the only other people there besides a wedding that was going on in a tent. It is $20 a person to pan which seems steep but really it's worth it. We did not find gold in the creek but at the beginning they give you a demonstration and practice dirt to teach technique. The practice dirt had small fakes of gold in it which is neat for the kids to actually take something home. They help you learn technique and put your gold flakes in a vial to keep up at the camp then it's a short gravel trail down to the creek to do your own thing. Even though there was a wedding going on the staff was still awesome and spent a lot of time with us and helped the kids even though they were busy. There were very pretty flower beds everywhere and even a stream which had chilled soda for purchase right in the stream. Overall it was pretty cool and the kids loved it.
