Didn't find a diamond but had a really good relaxing time. Got pretty excited when I found 3 pieces of calcite! Looked like diamonds to me.

Most finds are from walking the open field mine area and seeing on top of the ground. Sitting in the mud was fun, but exposed to weather. The real treat is the beauty of the surrounding area, getting there, and it was very inexpensive.

I've been visiting the Crater of Diamonds for years now, lost count after using up my first 20 visit mine pass a long time ago - they are definitely well worth the discount. Although there are many ways to prospect for diamonds, wet sifting is...More

Very nice RV park! Lot size was good. Lots are level with a step up to the picnic area. Picnic table, grill and burn ring available. Very pretty area. Bathrooms/showers are nice. Great walking paths. Beautiful area. The rainbow trout fishing nearby was great!

We enjoyed ourselves looking, digging, washing, and then--nothing. But, believe this; a week after we left, a young woman just looking, found a brown diamond about 4 carets(?) in the same general area where we were looking and digging--near the main drain pipe. I don't...More

We went here as an adventure. We didn't find any Dimonds, but while we were there someone found a 7carrot dimond.

I agree call to ask if they have any special set up for disabilities. You may be able to maneuver close to the start of the field, but it's very deep bumps so a scooter or walker would not maneuver easy throughout. Also... More
