It was a pullout with a sign...we didn't see what else there is to do there. It was also closed when we were there (mid-September)
It was fun to take a shovel, pan, and hope for colour. Did not get any gold there but it was still fun to sit by the river, dangle your feet in the cold water and spend your time wishing for gold while swirling the dirt. Saw several families with young children, too.
The place is quite touristy; you can try your luck, but I don't think that there is any gold left around Claim #6!
It's just a small piece of the creek where you can pan for the fun of it. There's no place to rent equipment so you have to bring everything yourself. It was a cool idea to be able to pan but we were disappointed there was no place to rent gear.
I'm a professional mining guy, so this was the Holy Grail for me. The displays put the history into perspective, especially if you've read up in advance on the Klondike Gold Rush. Viva George, Jim, and Charlie !
Please take your husband to this free claim and let him have a day panning for gold. You can rent a shovel and gold pan nearby for a couple of bucks. If you have a camper take it so you can enjoy watching and can make sandwiches, tea etc.
