Love panning for Gold with my friends and family. We live in Atlanta and we went with our friends from California. We had a blast the ladies behind the counters were so friendly and our panning instructor was great! The Gems were fun we even bought more buckets it was addicting to see what gems we could find. We also... More
We did not have much time but wanted our daughter to pan for gold. After reading all the reviews, I picked this one. I did not want to go to the "rude" mine. We drove past that one on the way to Crisson but I wished I had stopped at the other instead. When we got there, the lady was... More
We don't charge a very large amount for the families to come in and Pan for Gold and Gemstones. We have a $9.95 admission charge. This includes a pan of gold ore to pan through also a bucket of gemstones to look through. It also includes a self guided tour through the old mining machinery. This is a very reasonable... More
Wanted to visit and experience a real gold mine. We panned for gold, gems and took a tour for under $15 each. Great time for a great price.
Took my six year old son here on a recent spring break (2014). He had been here on a summer camp trip last summer, and wanted to go "back to the gold mine." It was pretty much perfect for him; we were able to get right to some gold panning, but the thing he really liked was the "gem" bucket.... More
Went to Amicola Falls first (awesome) and we decided to go to Dahlonega b/c it was 30 minutes away from the state park. We went to the Gold Museum and one employee recommended the Crisson Gold Mine for our kids (10 and 11 years old). It was late in the day and we debated about going home. We decided to... More
I took my wife and two boys to Criofon Gold Mine this weekend and we all had a great time. Tony and Tammy talked to us like they have known us for years even though it was our first ever trip there. My boys loved the gold panning and the searching for gem stones. Unfortunately we wasn't able to take... More
We drove about 45 minutes to get here with our 4 year old. He had a blast! The panning for gold was a little advanced for him but the gym mining was a hit. Staff was friendly and available to help. We will do it again!
We have gone here every year for the past 9 years missing only one, after visiting with my parents as a kid 27yrs ago. Always find gold and have a GREAT time! I believe they still dig their ore out of the mountain and do not have it shipped in, to me that makes the find more 'genuine'. The staff... More
If you want to actually find gold, this is the place to go. We have been here several times and have always found gold. Not necessarily lots of it but, enough to make it fun. I like the setup for panning here as well. Shaded in the summer which is a must.
