Welcome to the Herkimer Diamond Mines KOA Resort where you can find Herkimer Diamonds, go swimming in the West Canada Creek, or stay in our tree house cabin!

The Herkimer Diamond Mines KOA Resort welcomes everyone to our home! You can stay in our themed deluxe cabins and lodges, such as our windmill, tree-house, solar-powered, astronomy and astrology cabins. Alongside our KOA's campsites, the West Canada Creek offers trout fishing and fun for canoeists, tubers and kayakers. Throughout the season, we also run daily activities from tie dying shirts to painting rocks and many more. As part of our KOA, you can also find Herkimer Diamonds at our mining attraction. They're beautiful quartz crystals that were faceted by nature half a billion years ago. Here you can also experience the jewelry store, educational center, and fossil-and-gemstone sluicing area. If you're looking for a delicious snack, you can visit our Canteen or dine at Miners' Table, a wood-fired pizzeria and chophouse.
