Great experience all the way around, Annie is really knowledgeable about all the gems we mined out of our buckets. If I could give more than five stars I would . We really look forward to our next journey back down here. Thank you for making my family’s day!

My three year old daughter is an avid rock collector and loved this place. We didn’t do any panning but she picked out a sack full of colorful rocks and was thrilled.

My 6 year old had a lot of fun here and left with a nice sized goody bag filled with gems and fossils. Buckets start at $35 and are filled with sand and treasures. You sift out the sand under the trough of running water. The little gift shop was cute and we enjoyed family photos with the large stuffed sasquatch! The staff here are incredibly kind as well. We enjoyed this experience.

Annie was fantastic!! I took 4 kids to this and she was so kind in identifying and teaching each one about the difference. It was such a great experience I brought just my wife the next day. We have done so many things this week and I keep hearing “can we go back to the gem mine”. Price wasn’t bad and we did have a few stones cut and picked up the next day. It was awesome to see something made from what was found. Thanks for the awesome experience!

Our experience at the Pigeon Forge Gem Mine was an absolute blast! Taking the kids to this gem mine was a fantastic way to engage their curiosity and provide them with a fun experience.Upon arrival, the kids were excited to select their own gem-mining buckets. The variety of options allowed them to choose the one that appealed to them the most. They were eager to start their mining adventure and see what treasures awaited them.The gem-mining process itself was both entertaining and educational. The kids enthusiastically sat by the water, eagerly sifting through their buckets of dirt, eagerly searching for hidden gems. It was a joy to witness their faces light up with excitement and anticipation as they uncovered one gem after another.The experience provided a great opportunity for the kids to learn about different types of gemstones and how they are formed. It was a hands-on experience that fostered their curiosity and appreciation for natural wonders.The staff at the Pigeon Forge Gem Mine were friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. They provided guidance and information, ensuring that the kids had a memorable and enjoyable time. The staff's enthusiasm for gem mining further enhanced the overall experience.

Always a great experience, family loves coming here each time we're in the area.Some people like to complain about the stones/fossils/etc in the buckets but it's what we come for. You go to a movie and come home with nothing but the memories; at least here the kids come home with some cool rocks too.
