Gem Mill Junction

  • Echo-Dell / Outdoor Activities / Gem Mill Junction

Join in the Rush!

The Gold Rush in the old west may have ended over 100 years ago, but you and your family can still experience the excitement of panning for mineral wealth at Indian Echo Caverns.

At Gem Mill Junction budding prospectors and experienced 49ers alike can:

  • Search for gemstones, chunks of amethyst, jasper, calcite, agate – and much more!
  • Purchase a variety of fossils – as keepsakes or for gift-giving!
  • See a great selection of gem bags available for purchase
  • Have a favorite stone transformed into a beautiful necklace – for posterity!
  • For the truly adventurous, get a bucket of gemstones for the family

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always available to answer questions about your finds!

Gem Mill Junction is a seasonal attraction, operating 7 days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Weather permitting, the Junction is open spring and fall when the weather is above 32 degrees. Closed November through March but bags can still be purchased in the giftshop. Please contact us for times and availability during our off-season.
