This is off the beaten path but worth it. My 6 year old loved this! She picked the Rainbow buckets and found lot of gems and rocks quickly. My husband and I picked the native buckets which were more work, but still lots of fun. Richard was fantastic and his dry humor a hoot.

Fun time for small kids. We chose the Rainbow buckets which are for "instant gratification." Warren was friendly and helpful.
