  • My family was looking for a place for mini-golf, and saw an ad for this place. The golf is unlimited, but the course is not well maintained, and it is very difficult since it's built into a hill. The ...  more »

  • We had an awesome time at Lilly Pad Village! Our three kids (age 3-9) did the gem mining and it was really cute. They each got their own bucket of dirt and sifted through it to find gems at the mining station. Each one of them walked away with at least 10-15 pretty gems. It was really enjoyable and the staff was super nice and friendly. Highly recommend! For the people that commented the prices were too high, it was $15 per child. We were a little skeptical, but when our kids found so many gems and had such a great experience, it was well worth it. You could not buy that many gems in a store for $15. And I asked a nice lady that worked there where they get their gems and a guy digs up the dirt and bags it for them. This place actually exceeded our expectations and the grounds are very nice and well kept. We came in early April during spring break and it was very pretty. I think people that leave negative reviews need to change their negative outlook on life!!!!
  • Highly recommend the Lilky Pad to anyone with kids! The staff does not treat you like just anther customer, but actually take the time to make the adventure worthwhile. Best bang for your buck and great scenery to take in. I am from eastern NC and be back for more buckets of fun in the future!
  • We had an enjoyable time with the owner today while excavating. We left with an array of nice mementos of our trip. Thank you!
  • My fiance loved this place, mostly a kid place, but it was fun to "mine" the dirt buckets.
  • My kids and I had a blast here! First we played putt putt then did gem mining. The kids really loved the hands on gem mining. It's been months and the kids are excitedly wanting to go again!
