“Fun Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is our second year to visit the Ace of Diamonds mine and I am already looking forward to next year. The time goes so fast and you can find some Herkimer Diamonds if you take the time to crack a few rocks or just look around the piles of dirt and stones. Can't wait to go back!!!

There was plenty of space to work in with a large area of new material. they have facilities to clean up in and available camping space also. there is a store for drinks or an ice cream to cool off with.they also rent the right equiptment you will need.

“Hunting for the big one!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

We spent the weekend at the Herkimer Diamond Mine KOA and came to the Ace of Diamond's to try our luck at breaking rocks and finding diamonds. When you enter the parking area there is a huge mound of rocks and dirt and they bring fresh dirt and rocks there often. One man found several beautiful crystals in just one rock right in the parking lot. He did work at it all day but patience and persistence pays off. We choose to start our search further up on the hill where there are several other spots to look. It was hard work and fun breaking up the rocks. Great way to take out your stress! We did bring home some beautiful Herkimer Diamonds and I would go back. We have never been to the Herkimer Diamond Mine so I really can't compare but one of our friends has been there and he said he would return to the Ace of Diamond Mine rather than the other. He had better luck finding the diamonds here.
