Eat what you want, when you want with no set meal time!
You'll have access to phone service and the Post Office is less than a block away!
If you prefer a more "structured" experience with planned meals, etc..., plan on joining us starting in 2023 with our "traditional" camp options!
EVERYTHING is included! You'll get an ATV to use for your entire stay! If ATV riding isn't your style, we'll have daily shuttles that take you to the goldfields!
You'll also get a Minelab Gold Monster to carry along with you as well as access to Dredging, Sluicing, Highbanking and MORE!
You can even check out a Minelab SDC2300, Equinox or GPX 6000 (check out detectors are in limited supply and based on availability).

You can fish for Arctic Grayling in a number of nearby creeks and even catch Northern Pike on Birch Creek at various spots along the Steese Hwy just a few miles from where you'll be staying.
