How to Find Crystals
Finding the quartz crystals is fairly easy. Stake out a spot and start digging. Sometimes you’ll even find crystals just laying on the ground.
One regular at the park suggests digging in dirt that is more clay-like that is a darker tan in color.
There are rules for digging – no tunneling, no digging with 5 feet of trees. Complete rules can be found on the park’s interpretive signage.
Tools For Success
You easily can tell the serious crystal diggers from the casual. The serious diggers come prepared. They have shovels, picks, large screens, and are set up for the day with coolers filled with food and beverage.
