"We've been to the sluice twice this summer and both times were great. Any questions we had were promptly and thoroughly answered. They even helped us fix up a special box as a birthday present. Highly recommend!"

"Our annual week-long trip to Maine is not complete without stopping here. It's a fantastic setup and the kids are always thrilled to hunt through the rock buckets and find their treasures. Well worth a stop for anyone who hasn't yet been there."
