The Coal Creek Dredge is a piece of living history in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. Located about a mile off the Yukon River, up the Coal Creek drainage, the dredge stands as it did when the miners left it, decades ago. Many tools and supplies remain inside as if the workers walked away yesterday.
