Family Outing
Oct 2021
For a location to go and see rocks and crystal mining this is a good place. Like many places if you are not into rocks this is just an average visit and place to spend money.

The staff was very nice and store area clean.

They have rocks from all over the world for sale.

Yikes.
Jul 2021
We've mined for crystals in other locations and had good luck and a good time, but Ron Coleman -- not so much. The mining was just okay. The RV park was pretty awful. They required a photo of our driver's license and a face shot when we checked in, which caused us to wonder whether they have issues with safety. The bathhouse was a mess, neither well-maintained nor clean, though the sign in the women's bathhouse about not using the sinks to dye your hair was sort of entertaining. The bathhouse is only accessible by locks with codes (which didn't work), which again made us wonder whether safety is a problem here. I wouldn't stay here again.

Great time at the mine
Jul 2021 • Couples
We took a tour of the mine and rode in an old army vehicle to the bottom. Then dug through the tailings looking for crystals. Found quite a few as well as quartz crystal rocks. Fun time, great staff.

Not as advertised
Jun 2021 • Family
We watched the videos they uploaded to Fb and thought wow ! We spent a full day there 9am to 4pm and hardly found a thing . We mabey got 4 pretty small bits of clear crystal the rest just mis shaped crystal quartz. I feel the video was very misleading . 4 of us dug all day and hardly got a tin can full of anything worth keeping . Just a heads up .. don’t believe anything they advertise you can find . I guess we did have fun looking but still .. a long way to drive from Houston to bring back nothing .

Site good, crystals tough to find, bathroom and showers...nasty
May 2021 • Friends
The staff were nice. The gift shop clean. A little pricey in the gift shop. The rv site itself was clean. The bathrooms, men or womens, were nasty. They had a laundry area but no change machine. Not the cleanest either. The sites were roomy but if you only want to stay a night on the weekend you are hosed. You have to pay for two days. They will tell you they are fully booked but when we were there they were not. They do try to work with you if you have soecial needs.

Wonderful!
May 2021
Went May 14 and May 15. I had the must awesome time of my life. It was hard work, but I enjoyed every minute. I didn't want to take time to eat or go to restroom. We found many crystals, but haven't looked at any yet. Did not take time to clean there. But, I feel like we found some good ones. Will be back, hopefully soon!

The most fun I’ve ever had digging in the dirt.
May 2021 • Friends
We had gone to Crater of Diamonds, which we enjoyed, but didn’t find any diamonds. Here, we didn’t find any huge, clear crystals, but we found lots and lots and lots of beautiful cloudy crystals. Everyone was friendly and helpful. You will find beautiful stones everywhere. Great fun!

Everyone should do this!
Apr 2021
Had a awesome experience. My adult daughter and son, and I dug for crystals and quartz. They tell you where to dig, and you will find crystals. Bring a medium size shovel , wagon, digging tools, gloves, small hand held rake and shovel. They give you a white bag to put your rocks in. I would suggest you bring a smaller container to put the smaller crystals and clusters in ,as they are very fragile and the points are easily broken. Dig deep. You can find crystals on top, but down deep is better. You are going to get dirty, wear old clothes. This is also a fun experience for children. We went to the Crater of Diamonds State Park for 2 days, but I would have rather dug crystals for 2 days instead. Buy the Oxalic Acid to clean crystals when you get home.
We truly enjoyed ourselves.

Thanksgiving Fun
Nov 2020
We had the most amazing time here. The view is amazing. It is so serene. We found so many treasures. We arrived at 8 and dug till 2. The crystals sparkled in the sun. It was breathtakingly spectacular. Definitely worth the trip to experience.

Fun and Fabulous place to visit!
Oct 2020
Such a fun place to go! The staff is very helpful regarding digging for crystals, they explain what to look for, etc. Also, there is zip-lining which is a blast and you can take a tour of the mine on a big ole Army truck which is fabulously fun and go through the exotic crystal mine room and see one of a kind things! If you want the real deal as far as digging for quality crystals, this is the place! Kid and dog friendly!
