The Lonestar Placer gold mining claim in Placer County, Ca in the Emigrant Gap gold district near Historic Alta. This fabulous 39.84 acre placer claim contains approx. 1700 feet of Fulda Creek frontage. The gold found in Fulda is coarse indicating heavy erosion from quartz veins millions of years ago. Another huge main source of gold is clearly shown on the west ridge next to Fulda Creek, which lies a tertiary channel deposit that has been eroding into Fulda Creek throughout time. While surveying the claim and walking the entire creek I was enchanted with the beauty and history of this mining claim. From the stacked stone walls that provided miners an access road/trail, to the old cabin ruins and relics, this claim has it all. Exposed bedrock litters the claim with massive pools and riffle/crevices running directly across the creek allowing for high gold concentration. Also noted was several nice gravel bar areas with bedrock only a few feet in depth below the gravels. High benches were also located and showed no past mining activity. The water was running much lower than usual for this time of year due to the historic drought in CA but still running enough to run a highbanker. Usually this creek runs much more water supporting dredges when legally allowed LOL. The elevation of the claim is 4800 allowing for perfect summer temps when mining. The Lonestar camp area is spectacular large enough for large travel trailers and RV's in a beautiful treed location. From the camp area only a 100 foot walk is required to reach the creek. Access is awesome off paved Texas Hill Road to the dirt access road. Another huge benefit besides the seclusion this site offers is the gated access. This gate is an old broken down gate that takes a little effort to open. However once closed your nicely locked off from the insanity of the world :-).

The Lonestar camp area is spectacular large enough for large travel trailers and RV's in a beautiful treed location. From the camp area only a 100 foot walk is required to reach the creek. Access is awesome off paved Texas Hill Road to the dirt access road on the right side.  Check your mileage to make sure you are 2.6 miles from the freeway exit so you don't miss the gate on the right side.  

After opening the gate from the left side (broken sitting on a rock, please lift and remove the rock). Close afterwards. Continue down the paved section until it splits. Go left on the trail. You'll see the sign that says Lonestar Goldmine.  Walk to the site first to make sure your rig can get through.  If not, you might have to camp at the site to your left right before the Lonestar goldmine sign.  Great for campervans and small Rvs.  Getting in to the big site is a slight slope downhill.  Probably a bit of a challenge for a capable 4X4 if you have a big rig. Getting out if it rains towing a trailer will be best with a second vehicle for support if needed.

Please remember put the stone back and close the gate once you enter or exit. Thanks!

Also remember that cell signal is very weak, so you will  need a signal booster for calls/internet.

Perfect getaway for dispersed style camping. No stress about finding the right camping spot and being by others. Lots of room to explore and the found multiple water spots to keep cool with the kids. Nice level area to set up and enjoy the outdoors. Host responsive and courteous. I will definitely be back.

We stayed at the second site which was relatively near the creak. For two people, we had a great time exploring and relaxing at the site. For the location, I highly recommend!

The only comment I have is the trail down to the second site. The beginning section is relatively rocky, but we were able to get past it with our hatchback.

Lovely spot!! Beautiful creek in its own little canyon just a short hike down the hill. The site was in a good size clearing among the giant trees. We didn’t look for gold, as we were just passing through. Allen was very helpful and responsive when I had trouble finding the gate. It was after hours of driving and the sun was setting so stress was a little high, but he stayed on the phone and got me there. He’s going to get a sign by the gate to help.

It is definitely secluded place. Very quiet.
The creek was close, but a bit hard to get to with kids. Still not impossible. The campsite area is large enough to fit RV easily, but the road leading up to it is very narrow. I would recommend smaller RV or a campervan.
I would go there again, but this time better prepared for "real" camping.
