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.
