This popular activity takes place on weekends during the summer season from 3:00 to 4:30 in the afternoon, however due to Covid-19 gold panning is not available.
We provide the dirt, water, shovel, screens, and pans. Bring your enthusiasm and plan to keep what you find in your pan.
NOTE: Gold panning (mining; rock hounding) is permitted only in the water tubs provided at the park. Mining or panning is not permitted elsewhere in Bannack State Park.
