  • We really felt like prospectors. You are garranteed to find something. Prepare yourself for mud and clay and lots of fun.
  • Great place to spend the day cheap. I walked away with just under a pound of Garnets in about 4 hours including one that was the size of a cherry! Now that I have sent feedback to Google and the correct location is now on maps, you can even find it without the frustration my family dealt with this last summer. You're welcome.
  • Dig your own star garnet, what more do you need to know
  • Beautiful area. My Son and I went and found garnets. The forest service was very helpful. They made sure we knew what we were looking for and had a great time.
  • Beautiful drive up to Emerald Creek. From the parking lot to the panning area was about 1/2 mile hike. Had a great time panning for garnets. Would recommend even for children.
