Alabama Gold Camp has something for everyone!
Bring your whole family and stay awhile or stop by for a day of picnicking and prospecting. We have easy access to all of our creeks. Plenty of camping right on Wesobulga creek. We offer water, electricity, bathrooms with hot showers, a pavilion where a group can gather for a meal or meeting. We're currently working on a building which houses our office, general store and enclosed panning area.
With over twenty five years of prospecting and mining experience we will be glad to teach anyone how to pan, sluice, highbank, or even dredge. The best way to learn how to pan for gold is with dirt you know has gold in it and we have lots of it to get you started.
