    I have friends that are ldma members (snow birds)and go out there every year for the winter. A couple of years back they went out early for some event /class the ldma was putting on and couldnt get in . they were told to go out and park in the desert with no conveniences ! They were told they don't know when it'll open up . Maybe a month or so! I dont know if they ever went back ,even with their lifetime membership! To me , I quit gpaa after many years promoting their club and wont consider ldma for myself ever .

    if you like to camp or rough it, you will like the LDMA, plus all the land you get to prospect and md on.

    I've heard similar stories, both clubs not what they used to be since ownership change.

    If you have the time to look , and the drive to work , yes , you will get gold .
    The low cost of Rv site with full hookups in Stanton is worth it .
    All members that we met in all the camps have been grate .
    So if your into mining , finding gold , ( donít plan on getting rich )
    And just love the out doors and exploring for gold , yes I say itís worth it!

    If your going to get gold out in the desert , or any where , your going to have to work for it , metal detecting , dry washing , panning etc .
    Enjoy the company of others , camp cook outs , games , bingo etc . Stanton
    has it all .

    Transferable Member ship , Life Time . LDMA and Gpaa .

    Sounds like your happy........glad for you. If you end up at summit diggins in the fall (Duesenburg), bring your puffer as its mostly small gold but quite common.

    If you show up to a national outting without a reservation, then yes, the place is packed and they have plenty of land open for boondocking all guests. You can come in and fill up with water and dump any time but even with 400+ full hook up sites, national outings sell out plain and simple... You're friends made that mistake, not the LDMA... Stanton is their Premier west coast camp and they can fit you in usually but trying to get in for full hook ups during their once a year national outing is not going to happen. But, like they were told, they have plenty of open land in the desert around there and we've stayed out in the desert for months at a time with no need for hook ups...
    I've belonged to the LDMA since 95 and it paid for itself the first time we used it way back then in ounces...
