Alaska Metal Detecting

Gold prospecting on the famous Anvil Creek where the biggest

nuggets were found during the 1900 Gold Rush to Nome.

We are a friends and family friendly resort.

We try to cater to our guests to make them as comfortable as possible. Our Great Room has a view of the mountains, expansive Tundra, and a bit of the Bering Sea. There is plenty of room for Guests to visit & share stories.  

 Enjoy AKAU Alaskan Gold Metal Detecting, along with providing the equipment in your package, we give you valuable how-to information on making the most of your Alaskan Gold adventure. Lodging and meals are included too. We have to mention, almost all who come say that one week just isn't  enough, but two weeks or more was PERFECT to really take everything in.  We offer discounts on your second and third week.  

 We offer shuttle from and to the airport and try to limit our Guests to 20 per week,

which keeps it small enough to provide our guests with that personal touch.


Our goal and commitment is to provide our guests the most

amazing getaway experience, with memories to last a lifetime.
