We have the use of the entire river, from bank to bank. The claim has other items than gold. Artifacts, gemstones, and other items. Gold is near the top as bedrock is 80 feet deep. At normal pool stage, you can walk across the Scioto river. We have drives to access both ends of the claim. A shelter house, panning station, port-a-potties, dumpster, and 12 camping sites with electric ( cost is $5 per day). Fine to pickers can be found. One year a 4 pound piece of Amethyst was found in the middle of our claim!
