  • You can pan for gold(only found one flake) or you can tour the mine. The inside is for purchasing gifts. 
  • Signs everywhere advertising this mine with underground waterfall. Drove 30 plus miles to find closed. Saw a local out walking dogs. He stated it's been closed over a year now. 
  • Very interesting, I guess it could be called a man made cave. Worth the stop but you see it all in literally 10 minutes, so can be a quick stop if you are crunched for time.

  • 7-25-16: CLOSED!!! What?! Yes. Signage all along the roads, only to find that the whole thing is closed up and over grown. Super bummed...was a fun memory from a previous trip 6 years ago.
  • Great, underground waterfall. Don't miss it!
  • was there 7-16-2016 CLOSED signs everywhere directing to the place and a sign at entrance "CLOSED" .....what a waste of my time to get there to see it CLOSED
  • Absolutely stunning scenery!
  • Tourist trap. Nothing to see and overpriced. Waste of time and money
