  • My family and I went to mine for crystals back in May and had so much fun we are planning to go back in a couple of weeks! The people were great, from Jennifer to Miss Dixie to Bobby, everyone was very helpful and friendly! I did a lot of research to find out which mine to go to and was very happy with my decision--this mine is a true working crystal mine, and we got some great specimens. Plus they have the most luxurious porta-potty I've ever seen. Can't wait to go back!
  • Best experience at a quartz crystal dig. We arrived early and were met by Bob with a firm handshake and welcoming smile. He was finishing preparation with an excavator of the dig site. Opening up fresh and promising area for guests to dig. After a quick education by Bob; filled with important tips on where and what to look for and how to safely get the crystals out, we were on to the dig site. On the short walk to the dig we soon realized that crystals were everywhere we walked. Then we began digging the red clay cavities and found a pickup load of beautiful mostly clear crystals and cluster plates. Truly awesome experience. Lisa also gave us tips and helped us find crystals . She was a great hostess who truly appreciate her guests success. On our return drive to Oklahoma we are planning our return trip soon. Thanks Twin Creek Mine.
  • This place is amazing. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Small and in the middle of the forest. Truly one of the best mines in the area. It is a must visit. I went to Wagner mine and you pick through the scraps. This mine you get to go into the actual mine they mine in. So you can find things that they want to find. They are great owners. They show you how to find a Quartz vein and where to dig. Even just getting out of your car and looking on the ground you can find awesome crystals.
  • My first trip was great. Bobby took some of his time to help me get off to a good start. Kid and dog friendly. Tons of crystals, low cost and great people. I am looking forward to my next trip to the Twin Creek mine.
  • We had a wonderful time digging and talking to Lisa! She took great care of us, making sure we were finding beautiful pieces to take home! I enjoyed it more than diamond mining! Thank you for letting us dig here!
