The Lilly Pad is closed for the season until February 15th, 2018. The Lilly Pad Village, located in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area, (just eight miles out of Blue Ridge, GA.) is designed around a beautiful mountain setting with picturesque views and sounds of nature. The Lilly Pad offers gem mining, mini golf and fishing for kids and adults alike. Imitated but never duplicated, the Lilly Pad Village offers precisely what you are looking for when visiting our beautiful mountains: A piece of Heaven, away from highways, parking lots, and traffic. It is a place of tranquility, restfulness, and positive energy. A destination for laughter and smiles where you can spend an hour or an entire day, leaving stress behind. Why chose the Lilly Pad? Because we are different! We offer our pristine property, our friendly staff, our quietude, our decks and picnic tables, our sociable pets, our flowers, and trees for the entire day if you wish. Free wi-fi if you need it (but why would you?)

We went to the Lilly Pad with our four kids age 3-11. Their 9-hole miniature golf course is included with the cost of gem mining, and we did that first, which the kids loved. They all loved the gem mining experience. We bought the big...More

We bought tickets online for gem mining (one bucket for each kid) to save money. The area is outside, but covered so this was a perfect activity during a rainy today. Our girls loved this so much. The owners and staff really enjoy having the...More

Just off Aska Road you will find a small dirt road that looks like a driveway. In fact, it may be a driveway. But along one side there is a small fishing hole, complete with chairs. Further up you will find a mining/panning operation. And...More

For my kids was mining for gems absolutely a hit. They had a great time washing the dirt and discovering the most precious stones. Very friendly staff and you can even let your newly dug up treasure polish. Great adventure for an hour or two.
