Liarsville Gold Rush Camp & Salmon Bake

3 reviews

Excursion Overview

Step back in time to the wild frontier and enjoy delicious Alaskan salmon!

Experience the historic town of Skagway and travel back in time with the Liarsville Gold Rush Camp and Salmon Bake! Liarsville was named for the journalists dispatched to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush who fabricated tall tales from this very location. You'll enjoy amazing views of Skagway from the foot of the White Pass Mountain itself.

Your Liarsville experience begins with an all-you-can-eat alfresco feast in the forest that includes wild, Alaskan-caught salmon, freshly grilled over an alder wood fire, Chilkoot Chicken, Alyeska au gratin potatoes, Liarsville Rice Medley, Prospector Pete's Baked Beans, and a robust selection of other sides, salads, and beverages. Beer and wine are available for purchase. Vegetarian or gluten-free? There's plenty to tempt your palate! Save some room for the homemade blueberry cake for dessert! Come back for seconds, or thirds, while a local entertainer sets a festive mood with Alaskan folk music.

After your satisfying meal, mosey on over to our gold rush-era trail camp. Here, you'll enjoy the waterfall and the authentic exhibits of Liarsville. In the Hippodrome a cast of sourdoughs and dance hall girls will entertain you with a hilarious melodrama and a poem by the "Bard of the North," Robert Service. You'll learn the art of gold panning, then test your new skills in the Liarsville goldfields, where you can find the precious metal that drove people wild with gold fever! The streams are so full that we can guarantee you will find gold. The best part? You get to keep everything you find!

Once you've made your fortune, take time to wander through the camp, browse for souvenirs in the Fancy Goods Gift Shop, and visit the bordello and laundry tents to view the antiques and vintage clothing left behind by the miners and ladies of the evening. Help yourself to complimentary cookies and apple cider and have your picture taken with one of the dance hall girls.

A little crowded not able to get a second salmon because line was too long. The show could have been better. A small mix up with the return bus but the excursion company quickly sent another bus. Quite frankly, our first experience with Alaska Excursion Company in Juneau was so excellent (largely due to how awesome Benjamin, our driver and guide, was) that we love this excursion company and believe they are the best in all of Alaska!

Cute way to spend two hours in Skagway. You get a fun show, pan for gold (it is harder than it looks), and an unlimited lunch with salmon, chicken and sides. There is time to walk around and see examples of what life was like during the gold rush.
