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!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 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”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 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.

“Worth the time.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We did not make the entire 60 mile loop into the gold fields, but the Bonanza Creek paved road portion is worth the time. Exhibits give great sense of the Gold Rush happenings.
