    Had a blast here July 7th with my wife. We're amateur rockhounds and the prices were great along with the selection. Much better than downtown Helen. Very friendly folks too. Did 3 buckets of gems and found some great stuff!

    We went there with 10 people had a very nice time the 4 children loved mining for Rocks and fossiles. We did a family package and they got a lot of sfine, gems, fossils for all 4 children. They said they were closed online but we drove by because the one with all the Gems outside wound up being the one closed. I'm glad we went to Dukes Creeks the whole family had a great time. Thank you.

    Had a great time with my daughter and wife here. Staff was friendly and helpful. My daughter loved panning and left with a great collection of stones and gems. If you are traveling to Helen this a great local attraction for the family.

    I loved it! My family and I had so much fun and so many gems, we also found diamonds! I'd definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Nice shop and you can mine gold or gems for a good price.
