  • Local flavor and decor. Excellent service! Great place to eat and spend time with friends. Good and plenty food @ good prices. Support local economy!

  • Our second visit to Big Thunder Gold Mine this fall. Absolutely love this place. Sandi, Randy and Trenton were so amazing. Can't wait until next Spring when we can make it back up to see everyone. Gold Fever!!!!!!

  • What a cool place to visit! It's beautiful and interesting to learn about mining. Pops is awesome! He gave a great tour and was so personally accommodating! Panning for gold was pretty fun too!

  • Decent mine. Pretty small. You can walk from end to end in about 4 minutes. The ground is perfectly paved so people with walking disabilities should have no problem. It’s very spacious inside unless you are 6 feet like me but even then, it wasn’t a problem. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly.

  • It was a really fascinating place. Great tour, Jennifer is amazing! We actually found some gold even though we panned for less than an hour. The prices were decent, nothing too crazy. I will definitely be making the 15 hour trip again just to bring my own kids!
