  • This was fun and the gold mine is awesome. Lots of history and information. We didn't walk the trails because it was chilly and we had the baby. Not an all day thing, just an hour or two of entertainm...  more »
  • Go after April so you can do the gold panning. Its a lot of fun to do the self guided tour through the old mine. Lots of old machinery and stuff laying aroud to see from a time gone by.  more »
  • When you drive up to this attraction, you think, this is in the middle of nowhere... but where did you expect gold to be discovered? This is a very cool venue all year round. In the summer there is mo...  more »

  • The kids had a blast exploring the old mine site and looking at all the old machinery. It was neat watching the old mill run. Panning was fun too. Our oldest found a speck of gold and that was icing on the cake! The staff was friendly and helpful. You can't beat this experience for the price. It was a fun trip and we went home with worn out kids!
  • A cheap afternoon out and interesting. Managed to find a small gold leaf panning. Chances are approx 1 in 5, but it's on approx $3, so good fun nonetheless.
  • Fun and interesting place to take the family. Lots of cool stuff to see and learn about gold mining. You can also try panning for gold.
  • Very friendly staff. Great place that is an alternative to Carowinds or fairs and such. Very relaxing environment. And my 5 year old found GOLD. We had great fun.
  • This is a must for anyone. The workers are super nice and it's free to roam and look around. Of course you got to pan for gold that's 3$ a pan. Which isn't bad at all out of 8 pans we found 6 gold flakes.
