Crater of Diamonds State Park

209 State Park Road

Crater of Diamonds State Park, the only diamond-producing site in the world open to the public, stands out as a unique geological "gem" for you to explore and enjoy.

Here you can experience a one-of-a-kind adventure hunting for real diamonds. You'll search over a 37 1/2-acre plowed field, the eroded surface of an ancient volcanic crater that 100 million years ago brought to the surface the diamonds and some of the semi-precious stones lucky visitors find here today.

This place was so much fun! It poured rain on us all day but playing in the mud looking for generous didn't show anyone in our party down. From both my one-year-old and three-year-old all the way to their 75-year-old great grandparents... Can't give it five stars because we didn't find anything even close to any type of gem but still lots of fun. Great camping and facilities as well. Fun pool place and great food.

Awesome place! Fun place to take the family to dig for diamonds or minerals! It kept our kids busy for hours. We haven’t found a diamond yet but we are determined to go back and find one. There is also a nice pool there in case you want to swim.

Great place to visit. Nice stories behind some of the large diamond finds. Spent an entire day and didn’t find a thing. I think I’d have better luck playing the lottery. Nonetheless the kids had a great Time thinking they could find diamonds and strike it rich. Overall, not a bad place or experience. Hotel was a dive and that’s another story and review.

Fun time! Found plenty of neat rocks, and some unique volcanic pieces to boot! Definitely fun for a rock hound. Don't expect to be rolling in shiny stuff, though. We didn't find any while we were there. Still fun! :)

So fun! Glad we stopped. Found a couple of pieces of quartz and some lava rocks! There is a sweet little water park to cool off after spending a day playing in the dirt! The deepest water is a little over 3 ft but there are fun, twisty slides and structures to climb on and interact with. We really enjoyed the entire day at the state park.
