Unlike all of the other gem mines in the area, this one managed to fill their barrels full of rocks and pebbles (seemingly straight off of the floor where you do the actual mining), rather than dirt mixed in with gems. This was the worst haul I have ever had from a gem mine. Split a big bucket with two... More

First you pay an insane price for a bucket of dirt that really does contain gold BUT the holes in the dirt sifter are to big to catch the gold. If you do happen to see a flake of gold as it goes through the screen you can't put your hands in the sleuth to get YOUR gold YOU paid... More

We had a blast panning for gems and seeing what we could find. The prices are very reasonable and the store staff was top notch. They even help you sort through your findings and help you identify your goods. We also panned for Gold, the kids didn't like this as much as it was a lot more work.

We had lots of fun and learned so much about the "raw" gems. The staff was VERY friendly, and the four legged greeters (dogs), were super sweet. Nice laid back attraction.

Desiree was the lady working, she was so helpful and friendly that this cannot be the same person earlier reviews were... More

Was a great experience purchased a 60 dollar gem bucket pulled several rubies, emeralds and 1 sapphire. And a bunch of other semi precious stones. Worth the value for the return. As for the gold panning pulled .70 grams of gold from the medium size bucket not a bad haul. Will be back

We randomly picked this place for the kids to do some mining. We have a 9-yr-old and 13-yr-old who both enjoyed it. We got them both a bucket for $30 each and they spent about 30-45 minutes sifting through their bucket coming up with some amazing finds in their bucket of all kinds of gem stones of all sizes. It...

We visited the mine yesterday. This was our 2nd trip to this mine as we visited 2 years ago. We chose to do the river grubbing for half a day. Keep in mind everyone has to pay even if they aren't going to participate. We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 9 year old in our party. We panned... More

Ok...I have to admit my husband and I were a bit skeptical at 1st when we called to make reservations for the campground and they said there were only 8 RV hookup sites. We have never camped at a campground that small and were not really sure what to expect, but we're pretty laid back people so we knew if... More
