Whether you like scrambling over boulders, adventuring in a cave, sluicing for gems and fossils, or relaxing in the shade by a babbling stream, this place is for you. If you have kids, buy a bag of sandy dirt which is filled with gems, fossils and arrowheads. We bought the big bag and found a 2inch diameter cluster of amethyst... More

We had a great time. I was on a family vacation with 3 grandkids 8, 6, 5 and my son. Everyone really enjoyed the well marked self guided tour. We found the natural stair to be fun and all the information at each section was informative. The kids love the rock room.. it was amazing.

This was a last minute trip decision and we were glad we went. An easy 30 minute ride from the Lake George area. We really enjoyed our walk around the facility. An all-around nice place to visit. Lots of extra options besides the scenic hike. The kids enjoyed the panning area. Make sure you bring comfotable rubber soled shoes to... More

Beautiful views. A bit shorter than expected. Ads are misleading. No sign of guided tour . Extra $$ for rock and fossil dig. Unfriendly staff. Gave it 3 stars for the beautiful natural views. Overall, reasonably priced.

We did the self-guided, go-at-your-own-pace tour following the well-marked trails. Four adults and two teens. We all loved it. So beautiful and really took our time. We all tried the climbing wall (it's short for adults so our challenge was to move horizontally across it) and sounded the wind chimes, took free walking sticks and headed off. It was a... More

We went on the adventure tour and had a blast! It was well worth the fee - the tour lasts three hours and takes you into several different caves. The guide provided history and geology information along the way and shared tales of years past at this family owned attraction. I was a bit nervous about tight spaces, and they... More

Start with a caveat: My kids (both 9) love rocks. This place was absolutely amazing for them. It kept their attention, the walk was just the right length and the caves were fun for everyone. We took our time - about 90 minutes from start to finish. Our kids then sifted through rocks, unearthed dinosaur bones and browsed the crazy... More
