We've gone several times. Anytime we have guest visiting we like to take them to Reed Gold mine. Great place for kids to explore and learn about gold mining. It's well worth your time to watch the vid... more »

Great price for a local find. Self guided mostly unless you get lucky to join up with a group tour. Rather cool temperature upon entering the mine, nice afternoon to explore the grounds. They also offer panning for gold if you feel so inclined. We brought sandwiches and did a picnic across from the gift shop.

Communication is their biggest downfall at the moment. Their main building is under construction and finding the visitor center is difficult because it is hidden and unmarked. They direct you to parking but then your left of wonder where you go from there. Also they usually take credit card but at the moment their machine is down but you don't find that out until you get there. The nearest ATM is couple miles away. The mine itself is interesting and appreciated that they turned the stamp Mill machine on Forest. Panning for gold was fun but the staff did not seem too excited to be there.

Interesting historical site. Well maintained, low cost entertainment. See the mine for free, nominal cost for panning for gold. You could be rich!

Love the employees, love the history, extremely beautiful! Even love Abby the dog who roams the property, she's a sweetheart.

Staff was rude and not helpful. The gold panning man screamed at me and my family to get out of the inside of the panning area and then let his own family (who came to visit him at work) walk thru the place that we were not allowed. Also the gold panning lady dumped out my nephews pan of gold without looking thru it so she could hurry up and go help the next group.
