At the Outdoor Show in Anchorage we stopped by the gold panning booth and my daughter got to "pan" for gold in their tub. Of course she found two little nuggets and Im $20 lighter after buying the "gold panning kit". I did some research(were in Palmer) and found the Caribou Creek Recreational Mining area. Im interested in taking her up there and letting her get her feet wet and hands dirty. Has anyone visited the spot and have any insight on what I can expect in terms of access for a young family? I don't much care if she finds anything, but just want to spend a day, maybe camp over night and let her get a shovel and a pan and go to it. Thanks!
