Its easy to do. Here is a review from one reader:

The Crystal Gold Mine, Utah

My daughter and I took a road trip in our RV from Illinois to Washington. We had seen a show on TV about panning for gold and discovered that in Kellogg Utah we could experience it for ourselves at The Crystal Gold Mine. They have RV parking there and are even pet friendly so we were very excited to try it out.

We decided to go for the tour and I am so glad that we did. It was about a half an hour long and it was cold in there. I didn't have a sweater and I regretted that, but I still enjoyed myself. At one point they ask that all the lights be shut off, and it is so dark in there. If you are afraid of small spaces you should probably not take the tour. It is expensive, but I thought it was worth it because you just don't get to experience that every day.

We did pan for gold after the tour but ended up with nothing. It was fun to just be a part of that, though, like in the old days. There is an older gentleman that owns the property and he is a very nice man. I found all of the guides to be quite friendly and helpful.

The park was lovely and the accommodations were fantastic. Beautiful trees and we had our own table to sit at and eat. There is also a dump station in the park, so it was convenient for us. I have told many people that if they are out that way they should visit the Crystal Gold Mine. http://www.goldmine-idaho.com/
