Watch a team of sled dogs demonstrate their pulling power and then try your hand at panning for gold like the prospectors that once poured into this area to make their fortunes. The venue for these eye-opening experiences is Dredge Town, a collection of buildings that look like they’re right out of the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. The sled drivers, known as mushers, will describe how the dogs are cared for and trained to maximize their strength and stamina to pull the sleds, often competitively in contests such as the grueling 1,000-mile Iditarod. As you will see, the dogs are spectacular athletes. Enter the Gold Rush Training Camp, to extract paydirt, sluice, and assay your results. Be careful! Entertaining townspeople will try to get your money before you leave. Learn the art of gold panning with a humorous and educational show. Practice your technique in heated water troughs. Gold is guaranteed! Weigh your fortune with our assayers.


  • Visit a sled dog camp and watch the animals demonstrate their prodigious skills.
  • Interact with the sled dogs, including the puppies.
  • Pan for gold much like the prospectors during the gold rush.

Need to Know:

Note: Dress in layers. Guests who go ashore do so with the understanding that they will be mixing with members of the general public.
