  • You can pan for gold(only found one flake) or you can tour the mine. The inside is for purchasing gifts.  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • 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!
  • My Girl Scouts chose this from the online description weeks before our trip. We were terribly disappointed! They were a cash only operation that took our check only reluctantly. The "600" foot waterfall could only be seen for 40 feet. And there was very little information. Don't waste the trip!
