Great gift shop. Beautiful open park setting. Tons of flowers. Large open lawns with tall pines set the back drop for this absolutely gorgeous old mine! Years of parks and rec management has transformed this old relic into a world class historical attraction. Complete with mine tours and locally sourced gems and minerals this one is worth the trip. Don't miss an opportunity to see the mine model, it's hard to fathom the scope!!
A great little State Park to check out. There a few miles of trails which lead to some historic mine sites at the Park and also provide some great forest scenery. The visitor center also has a ton of historic facts about the mining operations that took place here. They have multiple artifacts, gems, minerals, gold, and even an entire miniature scale model of the mining tunnels which are underground across the park and region.
