Gold Panning

Learn how to pan for gold by taking a 15 minute lesson with us, then spend the next half hour panning the troughs looking for garnets, fools gold, and real gold flakes!

 

Fee: $7 per person.

Lessons are typically held on the hour from 10am to 4pm, but call the Gold Discovery Museum for today's current schedule: (530) 622-3470. 

Recreational Gold Panning

Gold panning is allowed during park hours on the east side of the river across Mount Murphy Bridge.  Hands and Pans only, no other mining equipment allowed to protect historic resources in the park. Visitors will need to provide their own pan from home or can purchase one in the Gold Rush Mercantile.    ​
