This was a great place to bring the kids, very courteous staff/owners, prices were reasonable and the gem mining was a hit with both girls. We didn't try the mini-golf or fishing but for under $30 the gem mining was well worth it.

Although the site was less than expected, the website and employees were far above par! Gem stone mining was fun, the guide was knowledgeable as well as charming, and the loot was worthwhile. Beautiful drive.

The kids had a blast panning for gems. It was a great learning experience and fun. The service was great. June, the lady that helped us, came out to help us fish and then went to the gem panning area and told the kids about all the gems they were finding. It's a little place but everyone was very friendly.

Spent great afternoon fishing and gem mining. Staff really friendly, as were the carp in the pond. Didn't catch anything but lost plenty of worms to the canny fish! Good variety of 'gems' in each bucket so no danger of going away empty-handed. Highly recommended.

My wife, myself, and our dog Lilly stopped by to check it out and were pleasantly surprised. We had a great time talking with the owners, sharing stories, and enjoying the surroundings.

The putt-putt course was below average but the fishing and gem mining saved the day for the grandkids.

Just visited this place on a whim and wow I was surprised and we had so much fun gem mining that we came back the next day to play the mountainside putt putt course! Lots of fun! It has a cool factor with the gem mining because it's easy, fun and educational. We will visit again soon!
