Fun time.

My 4 yr old had a great time here. She was so excited of the stones, shells and sharks teeth she found. Great new experience.

There a a ton of these in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area but this was the one we decided to do. The gentleman that we paid for the bucket actually steered us towards a better deal and we got a TON of stuff. Its fun and you get to have one of our stones cut for you at the end of it.

Our children had an absolute blast sifting through the dirt and finding the gems. Even give you the option of having the gems they found turned into jewelry. Very fun for the kids.

My son thought this was really cool, he is only 7 yrs. old and loves rocks. We bought a $25.00 bucket full of rocks and sand and he mined the bucket. He received North Carolina emeralds, amethyst, and others. He loved it.

We come everytime we are in the area. Super fake, but the kids love digging through the bucket of dirt.
