Our second time to visit the mine and dig for crystals. We found more than enough. Caretaker was very friendly and let us know which areas had been overturned that morning. Sunscreen is a must!!!! Hats, sturdy shoes, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Bring your own tools or rent from the caretaker

This is our third visit within the last 5 years to Arkansas just to dig and sweat in the dirt at Ron Coleman's Mine! My husband and I had such a great experience this year finding many many beautiful BIG crystals! The crew brought up three truck loads of fresh dirt this first day we where there! So we went...

Office/Gift Shop very clean and uncluttered. I was a little taken aback by the form we had to sign and initial all the things we were not allowed to do. Not throw rocks? Obviously this had been a problem at some time. I threw rocks yesterday at another mine. It felt really good. And you can't break up rocks, but... More

Well we can check crystal mining off of the block. Been there done that. After years if talking about going ti the crystal mine we finally made the trip. If you like digging in the dirt and mud with the sun beating down on you this is the place. Just don't expect to find any crystal that of the size... More

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.
