This park is not much. No full hookups. You have water and electric but no sewer. Have to use the dump site and they charge extra for that. No cable and to use the Wi-Fi you have to pay. This place would be OK if they still accepted Passport America, but they quit that last month. The people that run the park are real nice and in talking to them they said they were closing the park for good. This should happen soon from what they say. Would not stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A little diamond in the rough is found in this small out of the way park. It is a beautiful area. It is within sight of freeway but not too noisy. A nice creek runs about 100 yards away. The "Trail of the Couer d'Alenes" also runs by - 60+ mile long paved bicycle trail. The manager and owner very welcoming. There are a couple of long term tenants but their sites are fairly well kept. We used Passport America for the discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The good news. Easy access to I-90 exit 54. New bathroom / shower with heaters. Good satellite reception. Nice manager was helpful and friendly. Bad news. Had no cable TV, slow Wi-Fi, poor Air Card reception with Sprint and Verizon and no amenities. Price appropriate. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They do not have sites that will accommodate a 40' rig so you have to park parallel to the only road that runs through the park. Did not put slides out for fear of someone hitting them as they drove through. Mostly occupied by permanent residents in old trailers and fifth wheels. This is the worst park I have ever stayed in and would never consider returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a basic campground almost without amenities. The new restroom is finished: two toilets and two showers, and it's fine. The WiFi is free and strong, (Verizon also works well). Most sites have a picnic table and fire pit. It's dusty and without landscaping, and it's only a few hundred feet from I-90. It's on the great Coeur d'Alene rail-to-bike-trail. There's no shade but the hills cause the sun to rise late and set early. Don't look for a swimming pool, restaurant, etc. It's just a place to park midway between Kellogg and Wallace. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm hard pressed to give this park a 5. It is new. Not a lot of money was spent building it. The manager/owner is trying to make a go of it and she is nice but nice does not build an RV park. The sites are very short. And the 50 amp sites are the shortest. A very small bathroom is under construction. There is a single porta-potty on site. There is a small, but nice, park in Wallace on 9 mile road that has not been reviewed here yet. Had I known about it I would have stayed there. It is on the north side of I-90. While in the area visit the Sierra Silver Mine in Wallace and play golf at the Shoshone Golf Club in Kellogg. A little west is the Snake Pit in Kingston - great food since 1880. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owner has just opened this RV Park. She's a very friendly lady and excited about the business. Although she didn't have many facilities when we were here (water and sewer will be in next season), the park was very ideally located just off the interstate, along a beautiful walking path that follows a river. There is a golf course just up the hill from the park and the local town is only a mile further down the interstate. It was still a very relaxing place to rest during our journey from N. Dakota to Eastern Washington. We were only going to stay the one night, but decided to stay a few more to explore the town of Kellogg a bit. There's also a really interesting gold mine tour just across the interstate from the park. We will definitely be back next year to see how she is getting on. The price was right and the service was excellent! She says they will have shower and laundry facilities next year too! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
You WILL get freeway noise if you stay here. However, I would grin and bear it, because the nearby (walking distance) tour of Crystal Mine is well worth the visit ($1 discount if you are a AAA member), and the price of a stay at the RV Park is reasonable. When you check in, they don't even make you fill out a registration form! The price I am showing is after taxes and Good Sam discount. By the way, the Good Sam/AAA discount is only $1. I said "no" to clean restrooms and showers" because...they don't have a bathhouse at this time. The manager told me that building a bathhouse is in the future plans. They mentioned that it would be a "coins needed" type of shower. Most of the sites have decent shade via a lot of trees. The sites are all back-in with a black top paved pad. Plenty of room for slides. You get just the basics here, water, electric, and sewer. Oh, the water hookup is shared. The faucets, which have double spouts on each, are placed every other site so one of you in the "pair" will have the water faucet on the wrong side. Since I was staying one night, I just filled up my tank and operated off that. I have a JACK TV antenna, and I couldn't get a thing on TV. To me, this RV park exists to serve the tourists who stop for the mine tour, so you wouldn't expect any "perms." However, about three of the sites looked like "perms" to me. There were NO signs directing the way to the park. The website says "easy I-90 access." HA! Not really. I had trouble finding it. Here is the scoop: If you are going east, take exit 51. If you are going west, take exit 54. Either way, you will have to get to just barely north of the freeway and travel along Silver Valley Road. (I was headed east, took exit 54 and had to double backward a couple miles.) I'm giving it a 7 because it looks like a cute little campground out in the woods. The mine tour is a MUST! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little park just off I-90, first exit after Kellogg heading East. Main business is the Gold Mine tour, they don't even talk about the RV park on their web site, just mention it is there. They are doing a lot of work to make the sites big rig friendly. We stayed in 45' rig and found the new sites asphalt paved, level and full coach length; others are gravel. Sites have decent separation on well maintained gravel roads, about four 50 amp sites the rest are 30 amp. Newer sites are wide and free of obstructions; we backed in. Clean. They have plans for pull-throughs eventually but not now. Full hookups. Very close to the freeway but not excessively noisy. Nice 71 mile paved bicycle trail across the road with lots of room for dogs to run free down by the river. Uncrowded when we stayed. Nice people, working to improve the park, interesting area and exhibits, and there is always the gold mine tour. A find for a quick overnight. Try it; I will again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
