Kenai Peninsula gold panning areas

There is still gold "In them thar hills," and we would like you to find some of it. We doubt that you will get rich panning gold recreationally, but you might find some color--and have a great time doing it.

We have selected three sites on the Kenai Peninsula portion of the Chugach National Forest that we feel would have the best potential for yielding gold. These sites are all within two hour's driving time from Anchorage via the Seward and Sterling Highways.

The following pages describe the three sites in detail. We hope that our descriptions will help you find success in your panning endeavors.

Good luck.
