Another Trip to Herkimer NY

Stayed at the Herkimer Diamond KOA. Although it rained much of the time my DW enjoyed herself digging for Herkimer Diamonds. They are actually crystal. She found a large one this time. A little smaller than a golf ball. I guess we will be revisiting this campground. DW has Diamond Fever.
If you stop there ask for sites 67-75. These are right on the Canada Creek. The creek runs right behind your rig. Very well maintained and very nice people. Family style campground.

We were traveling on I-90 past Herkimer yesterday toward lake George and I made a comment that we should stop and dig for "diamonds" on our next trip thru the area. Glad you enjoyed it.
I have Crater of Diamonds State Park on my list of places to check out too.

I am looking at a trip to Crater of Diamonds. But that would be a 1350 mile Trip for us. I think since my DW has the Diamond fever that trip will be upcoming. Also you donít have to stay at KOA to dig. Their Diamond mine is across the street from the campground. You can go there without registering at the campground.
