Gold panning is a integral part of Mariposa County’s history and to this day is strong source of income for many residents. Some “panners” boast their ability to shake $50 an hour from Mariposa creeks and you can hear them discuss their claims at our local watering holes.
Gold panning is a great experience for visitors and below are some great places to hone your panning skills.
At all locations you can purchase a “gold bag” and the gold pan + instructions are included. You can pan out your own gold and take it home with you!
