Roaring Camp is something special in the way of family recreation. It is an old gold mining camp on the Mokulmne River. In the past, it was accessible 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 and can mine their own gold by panning, sluicing, dredging, and dry washing.

Roaring Camp offers something for the entire family. Come for 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. Roaring Camp hosts a Saturday Night Cookout Dinner which is from 5:00 to 10:00 P.M.

For an affordable $40 per person, enjoy an ALL-DAY ADVENTURE into the Mokelumne River Canyon. We take you into the beautiful remote Mokelumne Canyon, once mined by the 49ers and still being mined today. See our Placer Gold Mine Operation, our Wildlife and Mining Artifacts Museums, the ruins of the past, pan for gold, collect rocks, fish, hike and enjoy river swimming in nature’s most beautiful swimming hole.

Enjoy lunch in our Trading Post or bring a picnic lunch. Great for school field trips, birthday parties, company outings, or just a day on the river with your family.
