Only went to the shop and the lady was very helpful about telling us that since it was raining, we would have a hard time with our vehicle on a very rough road. Therefore, this rating is for the information that the lady provided us.

The lady at the shop where you pay doesn't like her job. When we got to the mine location, a guy looked at our pass and told us to park. He was neither friendly or unfriendly. The few crystals we found were very small and...More

Best place in the area to dig and find double terminated Crystals and small clusters. Not a place for big Points but you could get lucky! As in all mines, better after a big rain! Bill will help if you are inexperienced. Bring bug spray....More

Really enjoyed spending time in the area. It was nice just to look at the scenic vista while taking a break. Did not have the touch to find much, but the shop fulfilled our needs.

Years back when I began searching for which mine to go to, this was the cheapest, gave you the ability to search all day and keep whatever you find. We went and loved it and have been back once a year since then. We usually...More

This is a great spot to find some amazing crystals. The last couple of miles is uphill on gravel and dirt roads. Pretty bumpy, but did it in my Honda FIT with no problems. The day we went, it was cloudy and COLD, and very...More
