What You Can Expect
Your Gold Rush adventure starts with an all-you-can-eat alfresco feast in the forest, including wild, Alaskan-caught salmon grilled over an alder-wood fire. After you eat, walk on over to the Gold Rush-era trail camp. Here, admire the pretty waterfall and the authentic exhibits of Liarsville's past. Then head to the Hippodrome, where a cast of 'sourdoughs' and 'dance hall girls' will entertain you with a hilarious melodrama and a poem by the “Bard of the North,” Robert Service.
Next, learn the art of gold panning before you are set free in the Liarsville gold fields to pan on your own. You are guaranteed to find that precious metal that drove men and women crazy with gold fever!
When you've made your fortune, enjoy some free time to stroll through the camp and visit the Fancy Goods souvenir store, the historic bordello and the laundry tents to view the antiques and vintage clothing left behind by the miners and the ladies of the night. This is the perfect time to have your picture taken with one of the dance hall girls or the camp's popular mascot, an Alaskan malamute (a type of dog) named Denali. Complimentary cookies and apple cider are available.

Everyone was very courteous and helpful. Our bus driver added to the trip with lots of local color. The entertainment was very nice. Great group of people that made our gold panning experience very special.
Excellent experience. My teenagers finally admitted they enjoyed it.

Love this tour would of liked more time to paned for gold!
This was a lot of fun and the food was delicious!!!
We enjoyed the trip and narration of points of interest by the driver. We were fed a delicious meal soon after arrival. We then toured the grounds at our leisure and were informed of different things in life of those old time gold miners. We enjoyed a short performance and then made our fortune gold panning by finding about 3 thin flecks. The history of Liarsville was explained along the way. Great scenery.
The bus picked us up at the pier and tooks us to Liarsville....bus driver was telling us about skagway on the way there...had all the salmon we wanted and they had other side dishes...saw a show and then went panning for gold...nice trip
