  • Loved the park and digging for crystals. Bring a shovel, strainer/sifter, water bottle and sunblock. There are some picnic tables, if you want to bring lunch or dinner. There are restrooms.
  • Had a great time. Digging for crystals was addictive
  • I was here when I was younger is a very nice place to go to this summer I will be there and I will give you an in-depth Report with photos.
  • Hot and dusty work, but worth the work. Landscape is like from the movie holes. Not too many people. Bring lots of water as dehydration happens fast at this elevation. Would recommend bringing a knee pad to rest on. Soil is quite soft and crystals can be found on top without digging. We had better luck on the area by parking lot A. There is a pit toilet on site and parking is $5 a day.
  • I love this place you get to find crystals for free and you get to keep them if you find them instead of putting them back. And the scenery there is amazing. And there is not a lot of people there so you get to find more crystals with not a lot of people around.
