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 park is fantastic. Beautiful campground with excellent, large suites. Tall pine trees surround camping pads with paved pull in parking, concrete and packed gravel tent and table area. Diamond mine is cool and the pool is a huge bonus. We camped with our 13 year old daughter and 12 year old son and we all loved it.

Spent all day here! Great staff. First few hours digging for diamonds. Then few hours cooling off in the pool. Then a good meal at the cafe. The service at cafe was great. The manager was on top of everything. And being one of their busiest holiday weekends they did great. We're headed back at end of summer, maybe this time we'll find that diamond!

One thing I wish we knew --- there is a water park that is here and interesting. We did this to dig in the dirt and let my elementary age children get some rocks .... we managed to get rocks. Everyone was able to be involved. Meet nice people who come from all over just to hunt for diamonds.

This was our second time visiting the diamond mine. We've enjoyed it but have not found any diamonds. We've found some other cool stuff though. I wish they gave military discounts but they said they are working on it. All in all it's been a great time both times we've experienced it.

It was fun and a bit of hard work. No diamonds found by us but we did find calcite and a bit of jasper. But still fun and only $10 to go. You can also rent equipment if you need. We bought the same stuff at dollar general.
