My husband and I came to the Royal Peacock the last week of July 2011.
From the moment we arrived, we were thoroughally pleased with the down-home hospitality we were greeted with!!The wilsons are wonderful people and each member of their staff was courteous, helpful and welcoming. We only dug one day (too out of shape to go for a 2nd day!)but found quite a few very nice small pieces to take home with us. Do not go expecting to become rich. It's all "luck of the draw". The staff tells you what to look for and if you work hard, have a keen eye (and a little luck) you can walk away with some nice gems. Sometimes ppl strike it big, sometimes ppl don't. Come for the experience and the adventure or don't come at all!! Expect to work your rear end off! We will definitely be back later this year and in much better shape to dig that 2nd day!!!
