gold panning in the states?
« on: October 19, 2007, 12:42:33 AM »
Hello to all.  Have been following forum for a while now. It's nice to read about others who have the same interests.
My question may not be applicable to this forum but I am at a lost as to how to find an answer so I thought I would start here.
We would like to go somewhere in the states for a winter break...possibly Arizona and are wondering if there are any RV resorts where we could combine RVing and gold panning?  I was wondering if any gold panning clubs there offer this type of recreation.
Thank you for any suggestions

Welcome to the forum Piker,

A few you could look into are...
- River's Edge RV Park
- Meadview RV Park and Cabin Rentals
- Stampede RV Park

I hope this helps
You'll always wonder unless you dig it

Hello Piker, Welcome to the forum. I lived in Mesa, AZ in Apache Wells RV Resort. Its about a hour drive from here to GPAA club claims, and Roadrunner claims. If you join a club that will open a lot more area to you. In Prescott, AZ there is Lynx Creek that is open to the public,. panning only... but it does get chilly there with some snow fall. There some RV parks in the Congress, AZ and Wickenburg, AZ area too, which will put you real close to the LDMA campground in Stauton, AZ and the famous "Rich Hill" placers. A local club there called the "Weaver Mining" its about $25/year US dollars. If you come to Mesa, we can always get together and go out on weekend, save on gas? Quartzite, AZ is another snowbird area with gold nearby. PM me if you got any other question.
More Au to you <-wave->
More Au to you, Robert

The biggest problem with panning in AZ this time of year is the lack of water. Not saying it cant be done. The Prescott area has the lynx creek public panning area ( pay to play, small fee). Lately Ive been having good luck with a dry washer and panning concentrates when I get home. If you are a GPAA member ( I am not this year) They have claims good for drywashing close to where I am getting gold now. As far as the RV thing goes I cant really help. If you would like, once you get located contact me via this forum and maybe we could meet up.

Best Regards,


Sorry some duplicate info in from the above post. I guess we were typing at the same time LOL
