Items for sale and on display in the shop are interesting as is the mine itself but digging in the dirt for 3 hours in the slim hope of finding a decent crystal left me tired and disappointed. If you're into that you'll enjoy it more. Facility is well run and the staff pleasant.

We have been here twice and have been to a couple other spots around the area this has provided the best crystals. That said summer is nearly dangerous due to the heat. This is a business so they are working the mine during the week come early during the week and you can see where they are dropping the new... More

Staff were super friendly, and we'll definitely go again (hopefully not in July)! Bring lots of water. We brought our own tools, they provided us with bags to hold our findings.

We love Ron Coleman Mine! This trip was for my birthday. I had great success there last year & was happy to be able to come back this year. We camped at their campground which is a great bargain at $12.50 per night. We didn't have a sewer hookup but their dump station was right beside the bath house. The... More

We have been to this mine three times during the last four years. This last time a new couple were running the tailing mine and it was a terrible experince. We were warned to use the portapotty because wasps had overtaken it. We noticed other people were not finding anything and neither were we. In the past one of the... More

Wow, it was exceptionally hot on the day we decided to go. We did find a couple nice little crystals but did not stay too long. We took the tour and found the information pretty interesting. The museum quality gems they have are phenomenal.

Family fun digging in the dirt for crystals for my 10 and 7 year olds. Kids found lots of "pretty" rocks to take home. Bring your own tools or be prepared to pay a nice chunk of change for some cheap tools at the store. Very good experience and will return.

The scenery is gorgeous. Someone said you need to lift your head up from digging for a minute to take a good look around and appreciate the view. That's very true. The facility is clean, well organized, and large. If you take the tour, you'll get to go down into the pit on the army truck to get close to... More

My daughter and I decided to try our hands at crystal mining after finding rocks at Crater of Diamonds park. We had a blast! My GPS took me on a strange route, it was much easier just to head north up Hwy 7 from Hot Springs. The place was well sign posted & easy to find. My daughter got to... More

My family and I just spent the entire day here and had soooo much fun! The zip lining was awesome and so was the dirt digging! No a single person was rude! So whoever said this place was rude maybe that person was just having a bad day. Very friendly staff! We will be returning! Thanks Rick for the awesome... More
