Checked this off of our bucket list. It was a fun experience, even though we didn't find any diamonds. We dug and rinsed gravel for about 3 hours. Luckily we had rain gear (waterproof jackets, pants and boots) along with waterproof gloves (purchased online -...More

You can bring your own buckets, shovels and sieves or rent them there. There are stations where you can wash whatever you dig up and then sift through the gravel for the shiny stuff. People really do find white, yellow, and brown diamonds. It’s a...More

Take work clothes and water proof boots to maximize your enjoyment. A complete change of clothes to avoid getting the interior your vehicle filthy is a must. Take drinking water with you into the grounds. A very different family experience, but enjoyable.

We had a great time. We found a lot of semi-precious stones. A hint: watch the video and check out the raw diamonds on display, then you'll know what you're looking for, we didn't until we were LEAVING the park. We still had a blast,...More

It’s best advised to contact Crater of Diamonds for they are use to the call volume pertaining to the weather. Best time to go though is after a rain and after they rolled the ground. They will let you know when all this has... More
