This covered gem panning spot is just a short drive from Highlands. If you are waterfall hunting it is located just one third a mile above the Cullasaja Falls on Hwy. 28 & US 64, halfway between Franklin and Highlands. The owners Chuck and Jane Green are friendly folks too making sure you are having a good time when you visit. There is no admission fee and you can sit at the sluice and buy your buckets from ten dollars and up to pan the material that contains both native and enriched gemstones. You can also count on spending lots of time browsing the store next to the panning area. Enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch. If you're hungry grab a snack and a drink and prepare to relax. All the equipment you need is supplied and the staff helps you identify your finds! My wife ended up getting a pendent made out of a citrine she found and had cut! The Jackson Hole Gem Mine is open 10am to 4pm from May 1 to November 1.
