Step Back in Time…..
Elkhorn Cave Mining and Sluice Panning!
NOTICE: The mining sluice will open April 19. From April 19-Mother’s Day it will only be open on weekends EXCEPT for School Vacation Week during which the sluice will be open daily.
Come join one of our favorite characters, Prospector Phil, as he helps you on your mining quest at the Water Sluice. Here you can pan for precious gems, fossils, and rocks. It’s a fun and interactive exhibit where you can keep cool on a hot day! Ask Prospector Phil about his quest for gold… you’ll hear some great stories!
Grab a pail and venture into the mines!
Bring your mining rough and pan in our mining sluice!
A Great Adventure……but watch out for that DYNAMITE!
