    Panning for gold? Make sure they show u how to use the ridges! Really nice older gentleman who taught us how to 'pan' properly. The other two girls working...totally left key information out!

    In 1799, 12-year-old Conrad Reed discovered a 17-pound gold nugget here. His father sold it for $3.50 in Fayetteville. It was worth about $3,600. Learn more in this American History TV video. Read more

    Our 9 yo girl and 7yo boy enjoyed panning and our girl even found 2 tiny bits. Cool history and mine. Takes maybe 1-2 hours total.

    Free, but if you want to pan for gold, it's $3.

    I found gold! Size of a poppy seed, but gold nonetheless!
