  • A great place to spend a few hours with or without your kid(s)! The staff was very helpful and they have a great selection of products to choose from at very reasonable prices. My daughter filled a zip lock bag worth of rocks and it was still less than $40.00. Will be returning when I'm back in the area!
  • Beautiful place and they retained that “old timey” feel. Super place to bring kids - there is lots to look at and a wide price range so everyone can take some home. You can mine your own bucket of gems and keep them (price for buckets vary by size, starting at around $12). Staff were super friendly and it looks like they’re dog friendly.
  • Very nice setting! Joe was a wealth of information,everytime my grandson picked a rock he told him what type it was. When he cracked open our geode he explained step by step. Digging and sifting was fun, only downside was there was no water in the bathroom to wash your hands afterwards.
  • Great place for the kids. My daughter loved mining for gems and feeding the goats. Lots of merchandise to look at, but the aisles were pretty cramped.
  • Way out of the way, but worth it if you are collecting rocks. Lots of interesting specimen. My daughter enjoyed the salted, large buckets. Many large stones. You are not going to get rich here, but it is a fun diversion. The negatives are: quite busy at times and location is way off the beaten path. Still, it will be a good time for your kids, if they like large, colorful rocks.
