Gold Rush Mining Adventures, Big Bear Lake

If you like to discover real gold, gemstones, and more. Our mining attraction is perfect for ALL AGES to enjoy! We are not just for kids but also for teens, adults, and seniors.

Our mining options are developed to entice all ages as well as budgets.

Easy, fun, and exciting....We offer many "themed" mining options to choose from. The themes are varied and so are the treasures within them. Try one or more and take home a bounty of gemstones. Due to the nature of the products, no two are exactly the same within the same theme.

The first step is to choose which theme appeals to you. Depending upon your choice you will use a different method of discovery.

Some themes are developed to use the water sluice, some are for the digging station, etc.

Whichever you choose, all are done right on site and are convenient, fun, and easy to do.
