Every weekend, experience family fun. Activities vary seasonally. Spring and summer tours include gold panning, gem sluicing, candle making, tomahawk throwing, and a visit to the petting zoo. Fall and winter tours include tractor-drawn hayrides, apple cider making, candle dipping, and petting zoo.
Kids especially love the gem bag of ore rough. These bags contain an assortment of semi-precious gems & minerals like iron pyrite (fool's gold), topaz, tiger eye, hematite, quartz, rose quartz, amethyst crystals, agates, crystal points, fossil shark teeth and more. 'Miners' carefully sluice out the contents in as much or little time as desired. Gold panning is also available, which includes a lesson & vial and is a great chance to find--and keep, some real placer gold. There is always at least one good nugget in the trough for that lucky prospector to find!
