  • This was a return visit and it was as fun as the first. Pulled in on a Sunday afternoon and scored one of the very few tent camp sites. The place was clean, the pit toilet was clean, overall, seems well maintained. Be sure to bring you own water. I stayed two nights and one full day. Perhaps 8 people came and went in that time frame. One couple arrived Monday evening and camped. This guy got on his phone for two hours being loud and obnoxious and when holler at to lower it, just got louder. Only negative to the visit. The Garnets are there, Found various sizes and quality. I collected by sifting water run off sands and gravel bed material. Have a keen eye and use the sun to spot your finds. Well worth a visit.
  • This was a lot of fun! I had the best luck walking about fifteen minutes down the hill and focusing on the areas with small gravel. Got about a dozen tiny ones (grain of rice sized) and one nice half-inch one. When the sun is at your back you can see them better. Bring something to secure them in and a lot of water to drink.
