My Son and I will be spending 2 days there, next Summer as part of our adventures. Looking forward to being one of the people who finds a diamond.

We're visiting family in Arkansas, and will drive the 5 hours to the park. We're staying two nights at a hotel, and will do our best to recover a stone!

Everytime I see a find like this, it gets me excited. I'm pretty sure the eagle eyes of a metal detectorist have to help at a place like that!

Actually there's some on Fleabay! The park doesn't allow anything but digging and sifting tools though.....ugh.

Maybe $2-3k? This dealer is selling an uncut 3.88ct yellow diamond for $6k.
