This former commercial mining site is one of the area's most popular recreation mines and campgrounds. Lucky Strike is located in the Vein Mountain region of the Blue Ridge, aptly named for the state's gold rush years. Pan for gold in a stream that was mined in the early 1800s or look for gemstones in our flumes. High banking events are popular with groups and mining clubs. Transform your gems into jewelry, working with local jewelry artists or find the perfect gold or gem piece in their retail shop. The Miner Cafe serves three meals daily plus the property includes campsites.

Something new, is the custom-built concert hall available for private parties and events. The rock and wood structure includes a performance area, massive fireplace and kitchen.
