Additional comments: In years past you were able to come out here and dig your own thundereggs but they have currently stopped the fee digging operation. You can still come and buy some of their famous thundereggs along with a giant selection of other rocks. They seem to have every rock you could imagine, much more than just thundereggs. They have rocks from all around the world in addition to local material and some exclusive material too.

This also have a shop and small museum worth visiting.

They do have different hours in the summer and winter so the best thing to do is check there website before visiting.
