Located in Skagway, the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp brings Gold Rush history to the present. The camp offers a number of memorable experiences and is especially great for families wanting an educational yet fun experience. Along with its beautiful surrounding scenery that includes a waterfall and White Pass, the camp is also known for its salmon bakes. Meals at Liarsville are all-you-can-eat and consist of wood-fire grilled Alaskan salmon, chicken, rice, corn bread, pasta beans, salad and cake.
Even with the enticing food, the main draw is the gold panning experience. Visitors get to try their hand at the historic activity and can even keep their findings. The camp also has a comedic performance involving sourdoughs and dancehall girls that keeps the audience laughing and is complemented by a reading of the poem, “Bard of the North” by Robert Service, who was known for his Yukon-inspired poetry. Don’t leave without exploring the old trail camp, which adds to the exposure to local history and culture that Liarsville provides.
Liarsville operates in May through September and offers lunch and dinner daily.
