  • We bought a bag of gold sand to pan and a bucket of gem sand to sift through. The staff was really patient teaching us how to pan gold. My wife and I found gold in every pan and we each found a nugget...  more »

  • Excellent atmosphere. Owners and staff were very accommodating. This is a place I will definitely suggest to anyone who wants the panning and gem hunting experience.
  • I didn't happen to visit this place, but I did purchase off the internet"the desert fox." When I came to the part to practice with the samples that were said to be included, there was only pay dirt with nothing to mix with it to practice with. The only other problem is, I have no idea how to put it back into the plastic tub. So, other then this I would have given 5 stars for my purchase. Now, after I figure out how to put it back in the box, I will be out there using my new desert fox.🏜️🦊
  • Went for the kids, ( 10 and 14) they had a great time! I didn't realize I would enjoy it so much! I think my wife enjoyed it the most though, because she will be getting some nice stones out of the deal. We started with the standard gold pan and bucket that you get with admission which was a great price. The gold panning was neat to learn, but didn't yield much a few flakes each. The gem bucket yielded a little more and even though you know it's just seeded gems, you still can't help but get excited at what you might uncover. We found some neat stones and got hooked. Went back for the 5 gal. bucket and found some really nice large stones, an emerald, rubies, sapphire, aquamarine, amethysts and other assorted gems (see pics). This is a family owned and operated establishment Tony, Tammy Ray, Brianna and the rest of the staff were all pleasant and very helpful. Brianna was very helpful and patient and is finishing 3 stones for us from one amethyst that we got. I based which mine we were going to visit on positive reviews and I was definitely not disappointed. I can see why they get the reviews they do.
  • Had a really fun time here with our family. This was our "second choice" but after coming here couldn't be more pleased. We all had a good time with the panning. Takeaway - gold panning is hard, gems are easy (even got a Ruby). Great friendly staff and very clean.
  • My wife and I love going there. We had a great time. It's best. And it's beautiful
