After much consideration and review with State and Local officials, we have made the decision to CANCEL this year’s programs (Scouts BSA, the Home School Outing, Conservation Day, as well as Rock, Gem, & STEM Camp). If you still would like to visit the Herkimer Diamond Mines during our 2020 season, please contact us. We can offer group rates for your party for discounted mining, sluicing and jewelry creation activities when a reservation form is in place.

If you need to reschedule a group visit, call 315-717-0175. To cancel your camping reservations, please call 315-891-7355.
