Quasi abandoned. The Yankee Fork Gold Dredge (Idaho) was last operated in 1953 and the original owners abandoned it in its current location. It is now owned by the US Forest Service and is maintained as a historic attraction with tours offered in the summer.

The dredge left enormous piles of river rock for miles in its course.
