River Bend Tour
Fun - Educational - Great Family Activity
Our newest and most exciting family recreation attraction is the “Lucky Strike Mine and Gemstone Panning Sluice”, located on the grounds of the Campground.
The mine was developed as an interactive attraction where families can mine for rare gems, fossils, minerals and shells from all over the world. Guided by the light on your miner’s helmet and with miner’s bucket in hand, prospectors enter an authentic mining attraction line with rare and exceptional specimens such as actual dinosaur bones, shark’s jaws, fluorescent rocks and treasure. Yes! All gems are the real thing as many are of high quality and suitable for cutting, polishing and mounting.
Besides being lots of fun, this attraction is highly educational! In a short time, kids can easily gain the knowledge to identify and catalog over 125 different minerals, gems, fossils and shells.

At River Bend, we want to offer our campers an up close and personal encounter with natural history and all that it comprises; the earth and rocks, minerals, plants and animals. In a complex and time sensitive world, very few of us have enough leisure time or the knowledge to truly enjoy the great out-of-doors and become intimately familiar with its wild members.
We have designed a wildlife exhibit with over 40 of nature's most favorite
members. Visitors can spend time viewing and learning about such animals as; a mountain
lion, black bear, wolf, moose, otter, mink, beaver and several more.
Covered Wagon & Kiddie Bounce ... always something new.
You never know what you can expect to find at River Bend!
