Stopped by on my way back from Italian Bar for a day. Easy access, close to I-5, nice camping area. Saw evidence of substantial flooding. Worked a few areas, found a few flakes, need to spend more time sampling, maybe high banking.

Just happened to stop in on my way back from visiting other club claims down south. Super easy directions and well marked. First claim (He Comes On A White) looks to have some good spots to snipe and dig. Didn't see much for access down to water due to the steepness of the bank so I continued up to the Horse Play claim. Large pull off for parking. Claim also has a road down closer to the water but didn't attempt it without having a rig with clearance and 4 wheel drive. Probably could have made it down in the girlfriends Durango with all wheel drive but the walk was easy enough. Water was fast with lots of exposed bedrock. Spent a few hours at the claim sampling with not much luck. Finally found a nice spot that wasn't so easily accessible and worked and got some small flakes. The scenery alone makes this a claim I'm likely to visit again. Finding gold is just a bonus.

First trip out in 9 months and find the claim occupied by what I'll call "non recreational campers". The road down was roped off to prevent access to the claim, and signs posted on the tree saying "smile, you're on camera". This use to be one of our favorite spots to camp with the kids, but seems as of late that the whole area along White Horse Creek is being over run with people who aren't there for the scenery. I wish someone would do something about it. It's this kind of activity that closes these places off to those who truly do enjoy them, it really is a great spot. If you do make the trip up, I highly recommend a sidearm.

*Update: filed complaint with Douglas County Sherriff's Office. 5/22/21

*Update: one arrested at homeless encampment upstream from claim and abandoned RV at bridge is supposedly being removed at some point. Apologies to the club members who were at the claim, however, blocking access and posting surveillance signs wasn't something I'm accustom to seeing from club members. My first thought was to come down and see if we could share the space, but the signs, rope and massive tarp wall blocking view from the road, not only made us feel a little uneasy, but the deputies as well. 5/24/21

*Update: Abandoned Motorhome at bridge has been removed! Thank you Douglas County Sheriffs Dept. 6/8/21

In response to allegations stated by Mike, I wish you would have called me before making false claims. I have never defamed , verbally attacked or desecrated your claims. My above comments were aimed at protecting the beautiful spot you have. My family and I have always treated your claims with the utmost respect and always picked up the garbage( have photos) that was left by those before us, leaving it better than we found it, always. To make such accusations towards me and Nathan is actually defamation by definition. My family and I are extremely disappointed, we truly loved that place and treated it as such, sorry for trying to protect it....
