  • Had driven by the Gem Mine many times and finally decided to stop in. The Gift Shop featured all types of gems and crystals. For twenty dollars, you could buy a "gem bucket" and do your own mining. It...  more »

  • Our family of five (including 7 year old son and two daughters, 11 & 14) truly enjoyed our treasure hunt at Jackson Hole. Daniel was friendly, helpful and informative while we panned for gems and the ladies inside were great to work with examining and explaining what treasure the kids had found. A major plus was the fully covered trough area with cement floor. No wading through muddy grounds or baking in the sun while looking for gems. Truly a great time for the family. The girls even took home new necklaces cut from stones found in their buckets.
  • Looking for gems and having some small talk with the staff while the dog is chewing on a bone. We had a great morning here and found some cool gems. Some still look like stone to me, especially the rubies. We have never done it before and have no comparison to other mines, but I if I didn't know better I would say the buckets are salted. Was fun, though!
  • Found lots of big gems in every bucket. Seemed almost fake. But you definitely get the best gems at this mine.
  • Me and my family went today and its very nice great prices and beautiful views.. We had a blast and had 5 kids under 6 yrs old that enjoyed it...staff was very friendly and would go again !!!!
  • Stopped in thinking this would just be a tourist gimmick but had a great time! Looked around the store and bought some delicious strawberry jelly. As we were checking out the gem "mining" caught our eye so we bought a $30 bucket to "mine". We sifted through the bucket with our dog on the porch and had a lot of fun doing it. Staff was super helpful & friendly, definitely worth a visit if you're looking for something unique to do.
