Panning for Gold in California's Woods Creek
Gold Prospecting Adventures is located in Jimtown, California, an 1849 gold mining camp that has been meticulously restored to reflect its authentic gold rush past. Mining tents, a saloon, mess hall, Western characters, prospectors, gunfights, and barroom brawls all add to the atmosphere for present day 49ers. The gold mining camp has over 25 attractions, but the main attraction is the gold. Guests search for gold by panning or sluicing Wood’s Creek on expeditions from an hour to five hours and keep all the gold they find. Serious prospectors can use dredging or electronic prospecting. Prospecting classes are also available.
