Get to know Northern Arizona geology with gem and fosil mining at the Old Bear Trax Mining Company! From a variety of choices, purchase a bag of mining ore in the campground store. Pour the contents of your bag into a screen bottom box. Dip the box into the sluice and watch what shows up as the soil is washed away. You'll learn and have fun at the same time with a great souvenir to take home!
You can leave right from the campground and walk for miles. Head out through the back gate to hike into the forest or up Dude Mountain. Go out the front entrance to head down Old Route 66 with your bicycles. Or bring your ATVs for some off road fun! These trails are perfect for horses too!
