Arkansas Diamond State Park

Anyone been there hunting or digging for diamonds?

There seem to be some big finds lately, like this one:

Haven't been down to Crater of Diamonds State Park near Murfreesboro in years. We didn't have any luck. There is a water park there, too.

We dug for a couple of hours once, but it gets old quickly. I thought we had a find, but alas, the ranger said nay
It's an interesting experience though, watching the folks who set up camp for several weeks at a time is fun, and trying to figure out where to dig. The spots of the previous finds are marked FWIW. I think the best time to go is after a serious rain.....but as you might expect it is muddy Rain on soil will do that..
We will probably dig a bit when we next visit the area.

We went a few years ago. No luck, and were totally exhausted HUGE mistake to go in July!

I would not call it a water park but a very nice day use pool at a state park.
