We have traveled the world and this past week we decided to once again take a vacation in our home state. We wanted to take our 5 year old son digging for diamonds and chose to stay at Diamond Jim's-----what a gem! We stayed in a tee-pee right on the river and each night a pony would visit with us and our dog at the camp site. We were also visited by peacocks and geese. There were goats, cats, kittens, and a very friendly dog. It was like a free-range zoo and my son was thrilled and tickled with the interactions. There were several boats available and we went fishing on the river the first night. The last morning we saw a bald eagle on the river. There was air hockey, ping pong, a hot tub, an aquarium, plenty of available firewood, new grills at each site, and two full baths for persons staying in the tee-pees. Claire and John were friendly, laid-back hosts. John went above and beyond by taking our son for a 9pm flashlit seach for gemstones. This was a great family stay and we are planning on going back and including our 6 year old niece!
