Groups Rates

The Outpost is an exciting destination for hundreds of groups every year. Perfect for school or church groups, tour buses, scouts, corporate outings, even summer camps and family reunions, our group packages make it easy to experience North Georgia’s gold mining history. You’ll become a prospector from the 1800's and mine for real gem stones and gold that you can keep! We provide everything you need to have a great time and be successful. Our educated staff is eager to help you along the way. We welcome groups and offer special rates for groups of 20 or more by advance reservation only.

All groups must be adequately supervised and must pay in 1 payment as a group upon arrival, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Allow a little extra travel time and at least 2 hours for your visit—3 hours is better if you plan on having a picnic or shopping. If your group is visiting several attractions in one day we suggest you make the Outpost your first stop. We recommend that you confirm your reservation with us and check on the weather by calling the day before. It can be cool in the mountains; light jackets or raincoats are a good idea, especially in the spring or fall. All groups must arrive at least 2 hours before closing.

Our facility is both wheelchair and stroller accessible. Special events & groups welcomed big parking lot and plenty of goods for everyone! Parking is always free and we NEVER charge for admission.
