Welcome to Indian Valley Mine & Gifts

A short 20-minute drive from Anchorage, Alaska on Seward Highway, one of America's most beautiful scenic byways.


*** We have baby chicks, ducklings, goslings, turkeys, and puppies! Please do NOT bring your pets. ***

We're located at Mile 104 (km 167.4 from Seward) on the Seward Highway just a short 20 minutes drive south of Anchorage, Alaska. Indian Valley Mine & Gifts is family owned and operated by Roger and Arlene Cowles. We're open every day 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from May 15 through September 15. The main cabin, which contains the gift shop, and the assay building at Indian Valley Mine are some of the oldest structures built on the Turnagain Arm, and are listed as a National Historic Site.

Indian Valley Mine offers visitors the opportunity to learn gold panning, browse through an assay building with a small museum, visit our gift shop, or simply sit back on one of our benches or picnic tables and take in the panoramic view of the Turnagain Arm.

Admission is only $1.00 per person.

We'd love for you to connect with us online. We occasionally share fun photos of wildlife on the property, group activities, and of course GOLD!

We're open from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. every day from May 15 through September 15.
