The staff is nice & helpful. Clean restroom. Parking is very close to digging site. Once I knew what I was looking for I found some neat crystals & other cool rocks. Take plenty of water & snacks. There's a Zipline too, but we didn't go on it this time. Would be fun for younger kids that like to dig!

We Paid $20 a piece to find only a handful of very small quartz crystals. I could have purchased more for the price we paid to dig. And we really dug in several areas. No clusters really nothing worth the visit.

For me this was not a good crystal digging day. The placed seemed picked over and later I was told by a camper in the campground that the trackhoe was broken and the mine couldn't bring up any fresh tailings. That may be why I couldn't find any points. But I wish they would have told me about their broken... More

We spent the whole day at Ron Coleman's mine digging for crystals with five and seven year olds. The kids (and adults) had a blast! We founds tons of great quartz crystals. And one the size of a basketball with at least 30-40 individual crystals growing out. We also took the mine tour with Lauren who was so good with... More

Second time there and they have added a lot more things to do. We dug for crystals and didn't come home disappointed. Beautiful specimens to take home and show off.

I havent been back to this mine since 2010, it had rained that day and I had taken several family members with me, but it seems that the people at the rock shop there were more concerned about their brand new asphalt parking lot getting muddy from vehicles coming from the parking area, so they banned everyone from parking near...

Alecks91, Manager at Ron Coleman Mine, responded to this review

Sorry about your disappointment of having to park on the top level due to the rain. A quarter mile is a vast exaggeration of the distance from the normal parking area by the tailings to the asphalt one. I can assure you the parking lots is not new, it's been there since the early 90's, the reason for having customers... More
