Finder’s Keeper’s Diamonds

The main attraction to Murfreesboro, AR, is Crater of Diamonds State Park, which boasts the Finder’s Keeper’s Diamond field.  This 37-acre plowed field is located on the surface of a volcanic crater. Visitors can spend the day searching the land for rocks, diamonds, minerals, gemstones, and more!  Anything you find in the field is yours to keep. You can bring your own searching tools for mining the field, or rent some from the park.  Many families love to spend a day with the kids out searching for treasures like the ones in the photo below.

The field is limited to 800 visitors at a time, so be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time.
