Crater of Diamonds State Park Facilities
Crater of Diamonds offers park visitors a one-of-a-kind experience—the adventure of hunting for real diamonds. You’ll search over a 37 ½-acre plowed field that is the eroded surface of an ancient, diamond-bearing volcanic crater. It is the world’s eighth largest in surface area. If you find a diamond, it is yours to keep.
Begin your visit at the park visitor center to view diamonds in the rough and explore its interactive exhibits that explain why diamonds are present here at Arkansas’s diamond site. Then, pass through the Diamond Discovery Center on your way to prospect in the diamond search area. Exhibits, interpretive programs, and a video show you the various ways to search for diamonds and identify rough diamonds as you prospect. Digging tools are available to rent.

The park accepts cash and the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Credit cards can be used at any facility in the park. The nearest ATM is in Murfreesboro, just two miles northwest of the park on Ark. 301.
