  • Great place for Amateurs like us. Was pleased with our finds in the creek. More education before sending first timers out on their own. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Got some good stones and having them cut/polished at the lapidary. Very knowledgeable there.
  • Hiddenite! Love sitting in the creek on a HOT summers day. Ole clothing, water shoes, bring container, bag or bucket to collect your treasure as you uncover rocks & gems. The guys in the lapidary are great. Seen there work & it's lovely, you may decide to make a pc of jewelry from your finds. They're expertise will tell you what your options are.
  • The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Our 2 year old had the time of her life wading through the creek and getting filthy. We found so many precious gems and pretty rocks! We spent three hours there and if it hadn't been for the toddler's need to nap, we would have stayed longer! Pack a lunch, wear closed toed shoes, and expect to get filthy. So fun!
  • I want anyone that may be contemplating a visit to run to your car and start the motor. You will be pleasantly surprised. They are thee most caring individuals, respectful, and attentive team. Taj, Joe and Sara. We had a fabulous time with all !! Kudos to their management for picking these individuals.
  • I could have spent all week here! We ended up deciding to do creeking, and found all sorts of great stuff. It was fun digging and sifting, the water was the perfect temperature, and everyone loved it. I would definitely come back!!
