Park Review – Prairie View Campground

Rating: ⭐⭐
Location:  Lusk, WY
Type: Commercial Park
Site Quality / Amenities: Roads and pads are gravel. There is a picnic table at each site and all sites are 50/30A with full hookups.
Access: Easy access from US-18 west of Lusk.
Staff: The owner checked us in and he was both helpful and talkative. He provided tips on getting gas and restaurants to try in town as well as a history of flooding in the area – they had been getting a lot of rain.
Cellular/WiFi: Verizon was decent at about 6 Mbps download and 13 Mbps upload. AT&T was also about 6 Mbps download and 3.5 Mbps upload.
Restaurants: We didn’t end up eating in town.
Nearby parks: We drove by BJ’s Campground in town and confirmed that the sites there would have been too short for us.
What we liked: We were not assigned a site so we were able to pick whatever site we chose.
What we didn’t like: The sites do not angle to the road inside the park so we had to go across the grass area which was a bit scary given all the rain they had been getting but we didn’t sink in. Many of the sites had trees that encroached into the site. Overall the sites were barely long enough for us and the truck and the park roads were a bit tight to navigate.
Verdict: We’d stay here again for an overnight. There’s not a lot to do in Lusk although they did have a museum in town. There were also several restaurants as well as options for fuel.
