Charming FOlk! Very Accommodating. A wonderful experience- all ages. great for sunny or rainy days.....they have both settings. The "gift shop "is really a museum so allocate time to explore!!! truly worth it for everyone. We are locals and go often for our pleasure and out of town guests to enjoy!

Great fun for kids and the lady working there was WONDERFUL! She explained every rock/mineral to each child (5 of them!) so they understood what they had found. Highly recommend this place!

From Our Editors

Families fill their buckets with the gem-studded dirt, strap on their prospector hats, and sift through the loot with the help of wooden flumes. The flumes, all-weather and wheelchair-accessible, wash away dirt to reveal fossils, quartz crystals, uncut emeralds, and other treasures to take home. Miners can opt for specialty buckets that contain higher concentrations of certain stones and fossils. A 3,000-square-foot rock and fossil shop is stocked with sundries from the United States and Europe that, unlike precious stones or the White House's water slide, are displayed in plain sight. Enjoy the petting zoo which features baby goats, chickens and a rabbit.
