Re: Rockhound State Park
On the road to the park entrance is a rock shop owned by "the geode kid" He's extremely knowledgeable and if his health hasn't failed and he or his partner is there he can tell all you'll ever want to know about the park and other areas to collect. In addition he will likely give you a map.
He has produced a DVD with an extremely comprehensive thunder egg discussion. You will also want to see his collection. He has also housed some of his collection at the local museum.
If you have a 4 wheel drive or high vehicle, you might want to try some of his sites on his map. Even if you aren't fortunate enough to find some of the more spectacular thunder eggs, the scenery and solitude will be worth the trip.
