Great family activity. We visited with our 4 yo and 2 yo and both had a blast! Our 4 yo especially loved finding "treasure" and "crystals". Joe was fantastic and super helpful. Dogs welcome and loved on too; he even got our dog a bowl of water! Cool gem shop.

A wonderful place to visit. You can pan for gems and has a nice rock and gem store side that has friendly people. Anastasia was exceptionally well informed and very helpful to our grandchildren and us. We will visit again. Well worth anyone’s time.
