Doc's Rocks Gem Mine

Pets are family too :) We are a local family operated tourist location in Blowing Rock and even the four- legged family members are welcome. We are very pet friendly and love to see people out with their dogs. We have a gift shop and a large outside area for our guest. Just down the parking lot is a paved walking trail by the stream so if Fido gets a little bored there is a nice area to walk. Visit Website

Or call (828) 264-4499 for more information.

    All the LOVES

    This place is great! Not only do they have an array of fun things to keep the family and kids busy, they are so pet friendly. You can mine for gems, shop their amazing and not mention reasonably prices cut gem stones, they also have an awesome bead shop where you can customize and make your own jewelry. Grab a cup of coffee or frappe and locally backed pastries next door at Java Rocks before you start mining if you need the pick me up to keep up.

    We went here with the family to have some fun playing in the dirt. We did not know at first that they are pet friendly but when they seen Oden in the car they let us bring him in. They do have a dog there that is the owners, she is very friendly and played with Oden. Great staff. We were also told about the walking trail that is in front of Mystery Hill (the business next door). This is black topped and a nice little walk to Tweetsie Railroad that is also pet friendly. Great area to come and spend time with the whole family.
