Crystal Park in the Pioneer Mountains of Southwest Montana is for rock hounds of all ages. It is a bit off the beaten path and at 7,800 feet above sea level.  On your honor, pay a small fee to dig to your hearts content. Bring your...More

Kind of hard finding a place that hasn't been dug. Holes are every where, but we found some good crystals. You can't dig 4' from the trees and the trees are every where. Kinda fun mining for crystals.

Despite the excellent reviews, I really didn't expect much. I really wanted my daughter to be able to experience the forest, though, since everything else we were doing on the trip was in the valley, so I figured it would be worth doing since she...More

This is a great place for families to take children to for digging and looking for crystals. You need to be prepared ahead of time to bring supplies. Shovels buckets-bug spray- drinking water. The digging is not hard to do.
