Murfreesboro - 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.

Went here August 2017. Was visiting family from NE Texas. It was nice to see a diamond reserve. 8th largest in the world. The kids all had fun looking for diamonds and the staff were very helpful in providing little shovels. It get hot so stay hydrated and we're protective clothing. Check it out. Beautiful drive and scenery.

Great Family fun! we always enjoy trips to the Diamond Mine. this is fun for the whole family. Simple Fun! The facilities (bathrooms & such) are kept clean & stocked. There is even a little water park for the kids during the summer months! bring your shovel & a bucket!! (or you can buy one in the gift shop or even rent tools to dig with)

We had a great time scrubbing rocks. It turns out that it is not the activity for me. A lot of people were there and really enjoying themselves searching for diamonds. I did have a really good time I enjoyed myself immensely. I left this place so tired I could barely walk. ;-) Next time I go, providing there's a next time, I will just been my time walking around looking at the old buildings and beautiful scenery while occasionly glancing at the ground to see if I see anything shiny. Good luck to you all. As far as camping they only have 5 tent sites.. If you have A-tent and you need a site after they have filled their 5 tent sites they will be very happy to charge you full price for an RV site.. I went up the road to Kirby campsite... I recommend driving up to Kirby campsite even if you do have an RV it's a much better site in my opinion.

Didn't find any diamonds but was still a lot of fun trying. Plenty of jasper, Barium, amethyst, and quartz for those looking for anything worth money, but rentals are cheap with tax, and with a high deposit price so bring your own materials or at least $100. Entry is cheap for all ages with anyone 13 and up it is only $10 with tax. The gift shop has many, many, many things worth buying at a cheap price including gem stones, polished rocks, a Crater of Diamonds State Park spelunking helmet, candy, toys, drinks, and clothes, all starting at $.95 and around 1/6 of the objects are under $1 and about 1/5 of the objects under $2. Very fun experience for anyone of any age.

Digging for diamonds is such a unique experience! Highly recommended for anyone who loves hunting for treasure. Make sure to plan for the weather - there isn't any shade in the diamond field. The campground is beautiful too. Sites are wooded, and large with lots of deer and other wildlife.
