Strike it rich in Helen, Georgia! The Outpost Gold & Gem is a family attraction that is fun for all ages. Try your luck with our Pay Dirt Buckets, filled with either Concentrated Gold or Rare Earth Gems, such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, amethyst, topaz, and more!  All of our panning tables are covered and we are open rain or shine. Get hands-on lessons from our trained and helpful staff. They are always nearby to help you identify your finds and evaluate them. After you are finished, don't forget to stop by our gift shop, Southwestern Outpost!

The Outpost Gold and Gem is open 7 day a week, but our hours change by the season.
