Daily Visitor Limit and Group Size

To preserve the wilderness experience and fragile ecology of the area, use of the property is limited to 20 people per day.
This is a total of 20 people per day (day visitors and campers), not 20 people at any one time.

Walk-in visitors without a confirmed reservation will be turned away if Goldmyer has reached its daily visitor limit.

No groups larger than 8 people are permitted, as a large group at the springs at one time would be too crowded.
Multiple groups associated with each other are considered a single group.
This policy reduces ecological footprint and damage to the area.


Camping

Camping is permitted in one of several beautiful wilderness campsites along Burnt Boot Creek.
Camping fees are $5 per night, per person 18 years of age and older.
Multi-night visits are welcome.
Anybody that camps off Goldmyer property is considered a day use visitor.


Youth Groups

Inquire with our office about special use policies for youth groups.
