  • this is a great place to take your kids. we are all adults and had so much fun. the gems you find are great 
  • I love mining it's as though gardening or weeding. Therapeutic ! I get my rocks to go and come home and do the sifting on my own! Plus I get a bag full of expensive rock to put down in my drive! 
  • Had a great time panning for gems! Bought a normal size bucket and had lots of pretty gems in it. Will be back! 
  • Clean, great family environment, and very friendly staff. My family and I found tons of stuff in the Super Gem Bucket. We even had an emerald cut and to be set in a pendant. We capped off the day with ice cream from the general store. Overall it was a terrific experience! I highly suggest it for anyone looking to have some fun. We will definitely be back.
  • Been before with Some of my grandkids and taking them all back in few weeks! Loved it! Was fun and educational! People were so nice and sweet! Can't wait to get back!
  • Fun experience for the little ones. A bit expensive for what you take home, but the shop is also very nice and they ID your rocks for you for free.
  • Family of 6. My boys had a good time looking for the stones. We're having a good time until we went inside to have the guys identify our stones. One of the old men was really nice and took the time to show us what we found. The other old man acted like we were putting him out. Old man needs to be a little more helpful after dropping over $100.00 in his business and not so rude.
  • Lots of fun
