  • Due to snow, much was closed in this little town when we visited in mid-December. But this was a fun way to pass the time. You buy a bucket of dirt (several sizes and prices available) and then you si...  more »

  • I absolutely love this place! I am an avid rock and gemstone collector and I know this attraction is for kids, but I love it and thoroughly enjoy it as well! The price is $8.00 per person, but I think it's worth it. The gemstones are kind of small, but hey, for $8.00 what did you expect? This is awesome family attraction. The store itself is so cool and has lots of rocks and amazing gemstones to look at or purchase! I recommend this gemstone mining place to anyone of any age!
  • This is a really GREAT place to gem mine. First, it is up in the mountains and the drive is gorgeous! The roads are paved, safe and it is such a scenic ride. Once we arrived, it is located in a quant town. The store is upstairs, gem mining is down stairs. The gem mining was a great experience for both the adults and kids! The woman who runs the gem mining part is passionate about her job and helped us identify our finds. She took a good deal of time explaining all of the gems we found, which were a lot! We have gem mined at other locations and bar none, this one is the BEST. I highly recommend this location to anyone who wants to have a truly enjoyable day!
  • We had so much fun with it girls they keep wanting to go back. And the price was very reasonable for the greens we found but the memories are priceless!!
  • We end up in this place every time we're in chimney rock, which is usually 3-5 times a year, great staff and prices. My daughter loves the gem mining.
  • Birthday Party! We did their birthday party package for my daughter's 5th birthday. Not only was it great fun mining for the rocks but these are the stones we found. I highly recommend it!!!
