We have been up crystal digging a couple of times....lots of fun. The first time we came back with buckets of good crystals...the second time was not so good...but still a lot of fun. Wear clothes and shoes you don't care about!

I know there are several around, but we did Coleman Quartz.
They actually have an RV park on site....we didn't look real close, but it seemed fine and pretty reasonable.

You can't beat $12.50 a night for full hookups!!:lizard:

I think I may have to stop into the quarry for a few hours with the kids, thanks Terry!

Make sure you drink LOTS of water. You are on top of a dirt mound and it really sucks the moisture out of you....

They give you a bag to put crystals in, but I bring a 5 gallon bucket. Also throw in some digging tools. I bring a small folding shovel, a brick hammer, a few picks, garden trowels, etc....enough to thrown in the bucket and then carry around. You can park your car right at the mound, so bring a picnic lunch and snacks. Some days you do well...others....no so well You will see people there with carts lugging out huge rocks for landscaping too. It is one of those good family fun things you need to do.

We liked Lake Catherine because we got to go up and do crystals and visit Hot Springs. Be sure to go to the Gator Farm while the girls are doing the whole spa thing.
