Gold Panning and Prospecting: We rent gold panning equipment to people staying in our campground. Guests may pan for gold on campground property, we do not allow dredging. Coos Canyon Rock and Gift Shop, located on Swift River Road across from the picnic area, also rents pans and more sophisticated equipment and gives panning lessons. They also have some amazing gold nuggets on display and beautiful Maine made jewelry for sale in their shop. Please note that the East Branch Road is privately owned and land owned permission is required before prospecting in that area.
