  • 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 »

  • Great place for families, birthday parties, and really everyone! We had 10 kids from 3 families and decided to have a birthday party there. It saved us a some money compared to individual buckets and came with an extra mining hat, gem box, and large stone. The kids age 3-10 all loved to sift through the dirt for gems but so did their parents and grandparents who all decided to get extra buckets of their own. They were happy to let us share some buckets and provided extra shovels. We came away with some really cool rocks and had a lot of fun! After mining for stones, our family also enjoyed perusing the gift shop upstairs. It has some nice decorative pieces and a wide variety of jewelry ranging from sturdy and inexpensive to fancy and amazing.
  • 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!
  • Loved my experience here. Great for all ages. Will go again!
  • Had two birthday partys last year! Cheap fun and everyone really enjoyed it!
  • 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!
