  • My daughter and I enjoyed ourselfs so much the first day we went back for a second day. The staff is great and looking for crystals was a blast. A great time and will definitely be back.
  • Had a great time here. Would recommend it to anyone who goes to vacation in the area. Had a great guide in Kevin, very friendly and made the experience even better with his great attitude.
  • Spent the day there today with me wife. The staff are absolutely wonderful people and very helpful. For a rock hound like my wife and me we had a great time and found tons of crystal rocks. My wife found some really nice points and we both filled our buckets with crystal and rocks. Would recommend to anyone who loves to hunt rocks. Thanks for making our first trip there so awesome ...we will be back !!!!
