I brought my 7 year old daughter and we spent the day digging through the tailings. Next time we will go to the actual mine. We had an absolute blast. The prices were great. My daughter did one of the sifting buckets and found some great mixed gems. We found about a gallon of quartz that cleaned up great with oxalic acid. I bought a slab of Orthoceras fossils in the gift shop with a large pink quartz. There is so much to buy in the gift shop. I had to get out before I did to much damage to my checking account. They have some world class specimens. The weather was hot so bring plenty to drink. The staff was helpful and thorough. We will definitely return to dig again!

We liked this way more than the crater diamond Park! It is a little off the beaten path but work the drive. You are guaranteed to find crystals and rocks...you pick what you want. They have other lovey glass, rocks and geodesic. One of our favorite spots so far this vacation.

Agree with the other reviewer! More fun than the diamond park! A lot more / bigger rocks. Sure - they aren't diamonds - but more fun for kids (or adult kids...)

Wish we'd been early enough to go in the mine - but the talus pile was fun. Be prepared for Mud in the Rain!
