Rated 8 instead of 10 because there is only one thing to do here (well, two if you're a fisherman): pan for gold. If you're not into gold panning you might not like this place! However, the tourist attractions in town would be walking distance at sea level. At nearly ten thousand feet, it may or may not be walking distance for you. The park is new, staff is friendly & knowledgeable, sites are reasonably level, bathroom seems clean (but I didn't use it), etc. but there are no shade trees, no playground/rec room, not even any picnic tables at the sites. You pan for gold. And there is plenty of gold there. I get gold in every pan full of dirt, which has never happened to me anywhere else I've prospected. They have pans, classifiers, etc. around for your use if you're a greenhorn, plus gold panning supplies (pans, sniffer bottles, vials, etc.) for sale at the office. I have lost track of the number of times I've camped here this season, but it's been quite a lot. P.S. The trout are HUGE. We camped here in a Motorhome.
