About
Imagine unearthing treasures beneath the Earth's surface as you embark on a mineral-mining adventure in the lush woodlands of New York. RV campers seeking a unique twist to their camping experience can join a community of fellow gem enthusiasts for an unforgettable journey into the world of geology. With the chance to dig at the very site where the world's largest Herkimer Diamond was discovered, you're not just campingyou're stepping into a miner's boots, prospecting for your own record-breaking finds. As your RV settles among the towering trees, prepare for a guided day filled with excitement and education. Delve into the world of minerals with a group that shares your passion, and feel the thrill that comes with each strike of the hammer, each chisel's scrape, and each brush's careful sweep. This mineral mining adventure isn't just about what you take homeit's about the stories you'll tell and the knowledge you'll gain. Visual learners and history buffs will appreciate the on-site videos showcasing patrons, just like you, who have found impressive specimens throughout the seasons. These clips offer not only inspiration but also a sneak peek into the methods and joy that come with successful digs. In the evenings, retreat to the comforts of your RV, surrounded by the serenity of the woods, and marvel at the day's discoveries. With your hands still tingling from the day's work and your heart full of the day's camaraderie, sleep comes easy, under a blanket of stars, as you dream of tomorrow's potential finds. This mineral mining experience is more than an RV camping trip; it's a hands-on connection with the Earth, a social gathering with kindred spirits, and an educational expedition that leaves you with sparkling souvenirs and even brighter memories.
