  • What an amazing experience! We arrived and registered for the mine trip! Totally worth it! The staff and dogs are so friendly! They helped us decide what we would enjoy the most! After we chose the mine dig we hopped on the truck. They drive you up to the mine with supplies and you are there for a couple hours. We found so many quartz crystals. They are all lovely! The two hours went by so quickly! The weather was beautiful and the mine is so neat. After the couple of hours they take you back down the mountain and give you a box for all your treats! It was such a fun experience! I would definitely love to go back. *wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty*
  • Great place to visit and explore. The staff are very nice and make you feel at home. Also the mining area is very neat and tidy. The shop has a great assortment of treasures to be found. I recommend this 100%. And don't forget your gloves and motivation!
  • Some of the prettiest crystals I've ever seen. Went home with over 50 pounds worth! Can't wait to go back!
  • I absolutely love this place. Great place, employees are always so very friendly. We always find beautiful crystals. Fyi I love the dogs they are friendly. Kids love to do digs and we make necklaces out of what we find. Thank you for the wounderful experiences we have here.
