  • We really enjoyed spending a few hours here with our two children - both under 10. We each dug our own bucket of dirt and found several garnets, sapphires, quartz, and even some indigenous pottery. Th...  more »
  • We were in the area and hadn't done gem mining in 25+ years ago. We took the easy way and bought a salted bucket. Digging was also available. It was fun but we got dirty (more laundry) to do. We had a...  more »
  • Nice place to visit for sluicing gems from a bucket of dirt. Found many tiny garnets as well as other stones which the owners identified for us and placed in labeled plastic bags. Very nice gift shop ...  more »

  • The guy that runs it was extremely friendly and helpful. He even bagged and labeled everything we found for us. It was worth it. With kids, get the seeded bag for constant amusement. We found more gems than we thought possible. More than I've ever seen.
  • Today was the first time in 8yrs since I've been up to Rose Creek Mine. Still love it. The owners are great and found some lovely gems. My wife and step son enjoyed it too. Their first time here.
  • We had a great time panning for gems here. We did two buckets, one from the mine and one "seeded" with gems from other areas, which added to the fun. The staff were very friendly and informative, and they were very thorough in bagging and identifying the stones.
  • For a very reasonable price you can mine a large bucket guaranteed to have big rocks in it and an opportunity to find real gems. I enjoy watching the birds at the feeders along the little creek right in front of the benches. The folks that run the place are very friendly and helpful. They will identify everything you find, label it and place into individual bags. Great fun!
  • We had a fantastic time here today! The owners were very nice and helpful. They were very attentive and made sure you had a good time and found the best minerals. I found a 21 Karat white Topaz and a 14 Karat ruby. My family members found beautiful Quartz and Moonstones and we found many Garnets. The price was VERY affordable. We will go back to this mine again!
