Roaring Camp Mining Company - The place to be this summer!





Roaring Camp was once a camp for Forty Niners, but since it was so inaccessible, most of the gold still remains. Visitors can see our operating gold mine and can mine their own gold by panning, sluicing, metal detecting, and dry washing.

Looking for a place to take your family this summer? - Roaring Camp Mining Company
In the Mokelumne Canyon, the three forks of the Mokelumne River come together. It is a river unsurpassed in natural beauty. The water is so clear that one can watch the tadpoles and fish swim. There are waterfalls and natural rock formations forty feet high. 

All Day Guided Gold Panning Tour
We take you into the beautiful remote Mokelumne Canyon, once mined by the 49ers and still being mined today.

See our Placer Gold Mine Operation, our Wildlife and Mining Artifacts Museums, the ruins of the past, pan for gold, collect rocks, fish, hike and enjoy river swimming in nature's most beautiful swimming hole.

Enjoy lunch in our Trading Post or bring a picnic lunch. Great for school field trips, birthday parties, company outings, or just a day on the river with your family.
Saturday Night Cookout
Our Saturday Night Cookout Dinner is a five hour trip into the canyon.

After the guide shows you the Museum, Camp and our Placer Gold mine operation, he will show you how to pan for gold. (You keep the nuggets!)

The dinner is a hearty New York Steak BBQ. Just wait until you taste the awesome fried bread!
Camp Cabins & Tent Camping

These sites include a picnic table and fire ring right by the river.

They also include a wissbangr & mining instruction class, Saturday night cook-out, miles of river to explore, fishing, swimming, hiking, gold mining, etc.

All of this plus the best mining in the Mother Lode! Reservations are required.
