Fun day digging for diamonds... recommend bringing some kind of cover, this place is like the surface of the sun, it was 98° mid September... we used a 10 x 10 canopy and then attached a tarp on the side that we moved with the sun. You can take your own digging equipment or rent some there... remember whatever you take must be taken in by hand and hauled back out again.
Such a fun activity to do with friends and family and you never know you might find a real diamond. The facility is well maintained, there are people to guide you and identify the stones you collected. The field is pretty big and you can rent the equipments to dig and clean your treasure. Overall it was a good experience for $10 fee. Must have experience
