  • 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.

  • Lots of fun, though a bit of a trek to get to.
  • 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.
