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.
