Find "gold" at our mining camp under the windmill, just west of Helen's one-room country schoolhouse.
Using a sifter at the mining trough, guests can pour their "rough" and move it around in the water to see what wonderful gems they can discover.
"Rough" is a bag of sand with genuine gem stones. Each bag comes with an identification card with pictures and names of the gem stones that could be found.
There is a nominal fee for this activity - $5 for a small bag of rough; $8 for a large bag.
