Diamond Springs Water Park Reviews & Ratings
This place was pretty cool. It's a giant field, you pick a spot, then start digging around. They have friendly staff on site to explain what each stone you find is. (We didn't find any diamonds, but found calcite and jasper.) I think this would be a great spot to take kids, but not for that long, depending on the kids' attention spans. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience I would recommend to others. I probably wouldn't drive the 9+ hours again, though. At least not until/if I had children of my own. Oh, and don't expect to find diamonds! Most people don't find ANY diamonds.
It's a great concept and the kids enjoyed it for about 30-40 minutes...so that was about a dollar a minute for the three of us. We didn't know that the ground was practically cement (hard clay) and the sun was relentless. I think it might be okay to do in the fall or maybe spring, but mid August not so much. If they had had the water park (or the restaurant) open when we left a little after 10:00, we would have definitely spent another 30 bucks to cool off, but none of us wanted to stand around for 45 minutes waiting for it to open, so we left. Kind of a bummer since we went out of our way to make that a stop on our way home from vacation.
I love this place! It is a needle in the haystack kind of treasure hunt but someone finds 1-3 diamonds every day. I keep getting a feeling that I need to go dig and somebody finds my diamond first. Well all kidding aside, where in the world can you "Finders Keepers" a diamond. I give it six stars when my diamond pops up before my eyes....Love it here
We visited this past weekend and had a really good time! We didn't find any diamonds but we had a really good time looking for them! The staff is all very helpful and friendly. The Diamond Springs Water Park is awesome for cooling off after digging! We will be back for sure!
This was a fun stop on a road trip. We were prepared with rubber boots and our own shovels and buckets. We probably should have packed a lunch to take and spent about 3 hours. The rangers will identify what you dig up at no cost.
