  • Totally lived up to our expectations. The folks were friendly and helpful and we all found a few gems in our buckets. A fun adventure for sure; I would recommend going early in the day (they close at 4 but last entry is 2) and buying the extra buckets for 5 dollars each. Also I'd recommend you let the helpful staff sort through your gravel after you clean it because unless you're an expert you will miss stuff. Make sure the kids don't throw away their gravel before hand too!
  • This place is great. My daughter and I had never done this before and really had an enjoyable day. The owners are very nice and really know their stuff. This is definitely not a tourist trap but a fun and educational experience. We can't wait to go back.
