    So much fun!! Went with my dad, sisters and nieces and nephew that were here on vacation last week. What an amazing fun time. The kids, ages 9 to 17, loved it. And us adults as well. We all got very competitive to see who could find the biggest and prettiest gemstone. The young lady working was very nice. They have services on site if you want to have your stones cut and polished and mounted. We only did the gemstones and did not try the gold panning at the creek. Will most certainly be doing this adventure again!! If you come to Atlanta, don’t miss this. We drove from Lawrenceville, about an hour. It’s a beautiful drive up as well. Great fun for the whole family!!

    Went here yesterday with my husband and daughter and had so much fun. We were originally planning on mining/panning by the river but it started thundering as soon as we got there so we got a bucket instead. We ended up finding a ton of different gems.. amethyst, rubies, sapphires, and a lot of others. The young woman at the shop was incredibly helpful and friendly. She helped us identify our finds and explained the differences between what were gems and what were just rocks. They even let us stay a little after their closing hours because we were having so much fun. Needless to say, we will definitely be back! Next time, we are planning on camping there (it’s also a beautiful little campground) so we can spend a couple of days trying our luck at the river.

    Had a lot of fun. We did the pre-mined large gem bucket shifting and we also did the gold and gemstone panning down by the creek… while it was fun being in the creek water we did not make out with anything exciting like we did with the pre-mined bucket shifting, just a bunch of rocks, albeit pretty rocks, just rocks. We will go back but only for the pre-mined bucket shifting because we got several huge pieces of beautiful gemstones. Worth the 1.5 hours drive from Decatur/Atlanta drive! We don’t have kids but lots of kids having a blast there. Great outside activity.

    We stopped by this place on a family vacation. I spent a ton of extra money on purchasing a dirt bucket which supposedly held gold nuggets. We didn’t find enough gold to even come close to justifying the price tag. That being said, we paid very little for the gem bucket and came out with some real winners including a very large piece of jade which was valued higher than my living room set. The buckets are seeded, so each one is a winner. Being that my jade was so large, I don’t think it was supposed to be in there. We came across a bunch of nice stones and I had a set of jewelry made for each of my family. It is a great story to tell when you dug the gems up yourself (OK I mean sifted) and had it made into jewelry.My advice is to go get yourself a nice big gem bucket and have a relaxing morning sifting through the rubble. I loved it and so did the family.
