While it seems pricey - $12 adults; $10 child - it is for the entire day and you can come and go as you please. The facilities are clean and well marked which is very helpful for a family with young children. The ground sparkles with tiny minerals and diamonds almost everywhere you can walk. Many rocks have something interesting to observe even if they don't have a diamond in them. There is a small water fall on the grounds and different areas to hunt for diamonds. My family had a fantastic time and didn't want to leave. The staff members we interacted with were very friendly and send eager to answer questions and help. We are looking forward to a return trip in the future!
A great family experience! It was a lot of work, but fun too! We stayed at the camp resort as well. Definitely worth going back to. We found mostly small diamonds, but took a few of our rocks home to finish chiseling them. The diamonds are naturally beautiful.
We had so much fun!! The kids were super excited to find their own gems. Take water,sturdy shoes ( rocks are sharp) and sunscreen. Bring chisels!!
Amazing time and great finds. Had jewelry made. Great gifts. Going back!
We used to go all the time as a child, I have not been in years about 15. I have sense moved to North Carolina and started a family. We are thinking about coming to upstate New York this summer and plan on stopping in with our children so they can experience the mine and part of moms childhood
