Guests Love Our Newest Attraction
The new Dark Woods Lost Treasure Mining Co. did not disappoint!! Such family fun!! The “Mother Lode” was absolutely worth it!!! We sifted and found SO many gems, opals, crystals, fossils, shark teeth, arrowheads, 2 huge amethysts as big as your hand and so much more! The park owners Mardy & Jason offered personal attention and their staff were very interactive and helpful. Don’t forget to try the Dole Whip pineapple float!!
Such a nice activity for my nieces (ages 3-8). The water and shade kept them cool while they found their treasures. Packages for every budget. Friendly and helpful staff. We loved it.
What a great family outing we had today! Can’t say enough good things about this new adventure. Very reasonable prices! Great hosts-very friendly and helpful owners and dip in dots to cool off afterwards. What more could you ask for? My kids ages 7 & 10 had an absolute blast, as well as me and my husband. I Highly recommend this place It’s so nice to see new things coming to the area!
