Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp and Salmon Bake

Liarsville Gold Rush and Salmon Bake
October 05, 2023
We enjoyed our time learning the history from some very engaging staff and actors. The food was great. "Mining" for gold was simple, but fun to learn about, historically. Definitely recommend.

Great for Kids!

This was an interesting tour. The bus takes you to the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, which is a really cute camp. I would definitely recommend to bundle up as this tour is completely outdoors. You are given some time to enjoy the salmon bake (delicious salmon and mac & cheese - my favorites!), then you watch a show (my least favorite part of the tour), and then off to gold pining! again, amazing for the kids. i think my 6 year old nephew really enjoyed it :)

Fresh Salmon

The excursion was good. However, when we got to the location we were suppose to go to meet up with the guide, he wasn’t there. So at first we were not sure if we were in the right spot. We arrived 15 minutes early. Aside from that, the food was good and the panning for gold was fun.

This excursion was amazing. The Salmon bake was wonderful - the food was plentiful, very tasty and served buffet style outside. The Gold Rush trail & play were just so much fun & we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

The blueberry cake is a MUST TRY!!!
August 07, 2019
So my wife and I sailed on the Ovation of the Seas June 2019 and had such a fun time. There was live music, great food, BUT the blueberry cake with REAL blueberries was absolutely awesome!!! Don't even get me started on the grilled salmon over an open fire!!! Something I wasn't prepared for was the live show at the end where they put on a small play about the Gold Rush! Super cute & fun experience great for families with little ones!

Liarsvillle & Salmon Bake
July 06, 2019
Had no idea what to expect except we love salmon so this seemed a good idea. This turned out to be our very favorite tour! The "madam", in a bright red dress, greeted us as we stepped off the bus and ushered us to the BBQ where delicious salmon on the huge grill awaited us along with other side dishes. Then off to see a cute playlet after which we panned for gold. What fun, fun afternoon!

Just OK - a bit rushed but great salmon
June 30, 2019
Salmon was wonderful - with the butter maple glaze - out of his world. The show and gold pan experience felt a little rushed. Wish we had more time panning. This is a do it once kind of experience

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We were picked up and taken there as they said they would. The salmon was delicious as was the rest of the meal. We loved panning for gold and found a few gold flakes which was exciting. The whole experience was great and I would highly recommend it.

September 29, 2017
These people are fantastic! We were running late because the train excursion we took got back after the guests for this excursion had already been picked up. I called and apologized for not being there on time and wanted to know what all could be done. They immediately sent us a driver and took us to their "gold camp". Wow!!!! That was so so cool they did that. By the time we got there most everyone had eaten. The hosts were very gracious and told us not to fret. Let us go through the YUMMY buffet and we had an awesome meal with enjoying the FANTASTIC salmon!!! Then the plays were just down to earth fun for all ages! They taught us how to pan for gold and my wife and I each filled our pockets with huge nuggets!!! Okay in our minds we did but, we did actually got several nice flakes. We have then home and displayed. After all that they took us to the "downtown" area so we could shop and enjoy the history! Was it worth it???? ABSOLUTLEY!!!! Do it!!!

Fun on a rainy day
October 09, 2013
September in Alaska is foggy and rainy. We enjoyed this activity in the rain and it wasn't too bad. Great all-you-can-eat Salmon buffet with side dishes. Cute show and a chance to pan for gold, which we didn't do because of the rain. Gift shop provided a chance to buy a small vial of gold, if desired.
