Eagle City Park is a 35 acre privately owned recreational gold prospecting / small scale mining park located in the Coeur d'Alene National Forest at the old townsite of Eagle City in North Idaho.
Eagle City Park is 25 miles from Interstate 90 via the Coeur d'Alene River Road from Kingston, Idaho (Exit 43). The park is between Prichard and historic Murray, Idaho at 439 Eagle Creek Road, Wallace, ID 83873.
Eagle City was the site of the first gold rush to the Coeur d'Alene's and still holds the imagination of those who visit.
Eagle City Park promotes the hobby of recreational gold prospecting / small scale mining and is the home base of the NorthWest Gold Prospectors Assn.
We have 2000 feet of gold bearing gravels in and along Eagle Creek. Access is easy as the site is mostly level.
Visitors and members can enjoy a wide range of activities including:
Gold Panning / Sluicing / Sniping / Metal Detecting / Outdoor Recreation / Relaxing
and Best of all "You Keep All The Gold You Find!"
The Park is open Wednesday thru Sunday from 8am to 6pm. Or Monday and Tuesday by reservations only from mid-May thru mid-October, weather permitting.
