Hot Springs National Park is a special place where history is preserved and the natural beauty of this area protected for future generations. The park is a great place to relax.
When in the area there are several places where you can buy crystals that are mined in this area. The land around Hot Springs, AK is rich in precious crystals and gems We stopped just outside the campground at Ron Coleman's rock & gem store. The Ron Coleman Mine is located seven miles from the Gulpha Gorge. Although we did not visit the mine you can actually dig for crystals there.
