Roaring Camp is something special in the way of family recreation. It is an old goldmining camp on the Mokulmne River. In the past, it was accessibly only by horseback. Roaring Camp was once a camp for Forty Niners, but since it was so inaccessible, most of the gold still remains. Visitors can see our operating gold mine an can mine their own gold by panning, sluicing, dredging, and dry washing.
Rafting, diving, dredging, swimming in nature's most beautiful swimming holes, fishing, hiking on the trails used by the 49ers, wildlife and all types of ranch animals. You can also enjoy our miniature golf course, playground area, ping pong and horseshoe pits. There is something for the entire family. All of this, plus the best gold-mining in the Mother Lode!
Cabins and camp sites include a picnic table and fire ring right by the river. They also include a wiss bangr & mining instruction class, Saturday night cook-out, miles of river to explore, fishing, swimming, hiking, gold mining, etc. All of this plus the best mining in the Mother Lode!
Reservations are required.
