Crescent Creek Recreational Panning Area

Crescent Creek is located in cooper landing, access to crescent creek is by Quartz Creek road.  Fairly easy access to this recreational area through state campground.  There is a day use parking area.  Dredges may be used from May 15th to July 15 with a free permit from the State of Alaska.  The gold here is very fine but hey there is always a chance of finding that NUGGET!  Have fun and respect the environment.  The below map  is from a free book provided by the state of Alaska, they usually give you one when you get your dredging permit.  It is however hard to find a copy online.
