We took my two Grandsons to Pisgah Forrest Gem mine. They had an amazing time. Reagan was Amazing!! She checked on us several times and answered all our questions. She identified all the gems for my Grandson. She was so kind and just great! Elijah was also very kind and came by to talk with us about the gems. We will definitely be returning very soon. Had a Wonderful time thanks to Reagan and Elijah!!! Definitely recommend visiting Pisgah Forrest Gem Mine!!

We really enjoyed our first mining experience! My kids (7&9) enjoyed the sleuse and found many large rocks. The site was beautiful with a gorgeous mountain stream on the rear of the property and picnic tables just up the hill. We enjoyed the stream just as much as the mining! The gift shop has numerous geodes on display and reasonably priced. There was also a good selection of jewelry and Christian literature and gifts. I highly recommend this experience for your family.

I had a great time. I got to feed fish and a turtle. When I found w Megalodon tooth I was so excited! Blue is my favorite color and my favorite rocks that I found were: Apatite,Amazonite,blue calcite.I also found many other rocks of different shapes, sizes and colors. It's good for kids of all ages. Our attendant named Lauren was very helpful and nice to us while we were mining also showed us how to feed the animals. And I'm definitely will be going back.
