It was a sweet place to stop and let my granddaughters dig for gems, and play mini golf in the wooded course. They really had fun.

I took my two younger children for an afternoon of mining and mini golf. The attendant that greeted them for the mining was great... she informed them of all the different gem stones they could find. The buckets are pretty large and they had a really fun time looking for gem, which they found a lot. We then played 9... More

We stopped by this past Saturday, Aug 8. We had a group of 4 adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 2-12. We spent a good 4 hours there. The mini golf is in a shaded area so the sun was not a problem. The gem mining was super fun for adults and kids alike! A big thank you... More

This was a huge hit, so glad we found it while visiting Blue Ridge. The Gem mining was a huge hit, a lot of fun. The mini golf and fishing was all day passes so that was also great. The staff was awesome and the owner was great with the kids. A must do stop while in Blue Ridge.

Absolutely loved this place! My family loved gem mining and had a blast! The owner was wonderful and had a fun sense of humor. (He was also very kind to our children.) Everyone that worked there was wonderful! My children got many gems. It is a lovely place that we can't wait to bring family and friends back to! Definitely... More

While visiting here with another family from Northwest Alabama, we decided to this while the other white water rafted. Found a great deal on Groupon for an all day pass for 4. The owners were great! Had an awesome day of mini golf, fishing and the kids favorite..gem mining.

Gem mining was excellent. The gems are gorgeous and collecting them was the highlight of my 5 year old's trip.

You'll spend a max of 2 hours here... if it's busy you might spend even less time here. It's cute, but I'm not sure we got our money's worth out of this trip. We only did gem mining for one and fishing for one child and spent over $25.00. We went right before a storm was rolling in... perfect timing... More
