Re: Crystal Park MT- ever been there?
Visited there last back in '02 or so. Pickings were getting a little slim for those who dig deep (or maybe I just didn't have much luck that trip), but there were plenty of smallish clear points being won by folks screening thru the piles left by the heavy-earthmover crowd. The hardcore diggers DO occasionaly miss things so a nice amethyst scepter isn't entirely out of the question.
I'd think your children would have a great time there. If I recall it was $5 per day to dig there, site is easily accessible, even to someone in a wheelchair. Absolutely beautiful country!
Things can change so I'd advise checking in with the local National Forest (Beaverhead) to be sure.
