Crater of Diamonds State Park

Digging for diamonds is a dangerous and time-consuming process, but the rewards make it worth every minute. Since John Huddlestone first found two glimmering crystals in 1906, people have been coming from across America to try their luck at Crater of Diamonds State Park - the only place where you can get your hands on some rare earth minerals too!

Named a state park in 1972, this land just outside of Murfreesboro in southwest Arkansas consists of peridotite soil that has yielded diamonds and other gems and minerals to searchers since the early 20th century. More than 33,000 diamonds have been found in the park since its opening.

The main attraction is the park’s 37-acre field, where visitors are invited to search for gems, rocks, and minerals. Furthermore, their discoveries are theirs to keep. The park rents mining tools, or you can bring your own as long as it isn't battery-powered or motorized. In addition to mining demonstrations and various interpretive programs, park staff will identify your discoveries for free.

The park has several campsites for visitors who want to maximize their luck by spending several days searching for gems. If digging for diamonds isn't your thing, don't worry, there are plenty of other things to do here. The Little Missouri River runs through the park, and anglers can catch largemouth bass, catfish, bream, and trout. Other outdoor facilities include picnic sites and walking trails.
