We stopped here and had so much fun finding gems, even as adults, we even ended up buying another bucket. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable and we could tell they love their jobs. We would recommend this for sure. There's a little bit for everyone here with the fishing and mini golf too.

We were glad to have visited because I think it's the only place around that has mini golf, but honestly it was a little run down and over priced.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Lilly Pad. Unfortunately this time of the year the Lilly Pad is not the prettiest. Not only the winter colors or lack of, but this is the end of our season and with the 1000's of visitors we get each year, wear and tear does show. However each spring we do... More

This isn’t a place you will pass by accident. It’s a little far out but well worth the trip. Kids will have a great time here with the panning, mini-golf and fishing. The staff is wonderful and will take whatever time is necessary to answer any questions you may have. Note: the mini-golf is fun however, it is small and... More

The gem mining was fun...the water was freezing to my Florida hands but they kept brining in warm water! They were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I have teens and an eleven year old..my teens started out thinking this would be lame but we're being good sports for the younger sibling. They got into it really soon! All had a... More

We got hear one afternoon and we only played one game of putt putt. It was a little windy outside so we didn't want to stay long however the putt area was very small and not easily accessible for seniors. Overall it was ok and the kids liked it, however we will likely not be back

Thank you for taking the time to review the Lilly Pad and certainly thank you for visiting us. Next time you visit (and you will as the kids will want to come back - they always do) try the gem mining. I am sorry you had issues accessing the golf course. Yes, it is built into the mountain side -... More

My husband and I come here every time we are in town. The gem mining, mini golf, and pond fishing is amazingly fun. The owners even told us about a few hiking trails to check out.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner today. This is a beautiful place and we look forward to spending part of the day at the Lilly Pad Village when we come back with our son in March. We enjoyed sitting by the pond/lake and seeing hundreds of fish of all sizes coming towards us. Can not wait to come... More
