Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $18.00
Rated low because this park(?) sits on a wind-blown hilltop with zero amenities offered, which makes a $36.00/night fee a bit high. Thankfully, we used Passport America and received a half-price discount. The service was fine, although we had to go looking for the manager/owner who is the only staff member for the office, and was "in the field" when we arrived to check-in. A good-enough place to stop over for the night. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
A nice place to get off the road and get rested. Park was almost empty except for a few long term rigs. The owner was very friendly and full of information about the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Not much here.....we did happen to land on the night of "Rawhide" and enjoyed the show at the local rodeo grounds.

Prairie View Campground for us and now we're here. I was somewhat taken aback by a charge of over $38 for an RV park as stark as this one, lacking in amenities. Supposedly we received a more level site by the person that walked to our site. But the site wasn't level from left to right nor front to back. Points off for that. All gravel, which I understand is an improvement this year since where we were was supposedly all dirt last year. Very close to a highway 20, with lots of loud truck traffic. And don't forget the wail of the train about a half mile away. Sites a huge, though. We didn't have anyone directly near us, although we did see a significant number of folks who live in their travel trailers permanently to what appears to be some sort of construction workers. The office also doubles as a coffee bar. Interesting concept for Lusk! We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
OK place to stay one night. Mostly pipeline workers here for the long term. Site was gravel and easy in and easy out. People are nice and try to be helpful. Nice cafe on site. Wifi was good, but there is no TV reception. Lots of kids running around, but well behaved. Would stay again for one night. Not much else around, but make sure to see Fort Laramie while you are in the area. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground has new owners who purchased the place only a few months ago. They are making many improvements given the place was not maintained for many years. They were so accommodating given an unexpected blizzard rolled through. Offering guest into their home to ensure we all had shelter. Coffee was on every morning and we were greated with kind smiles and helping hands. The couple that owns the property has their son working there and he as well went out of his way to make sure guests had all they needed including rides to walk in hunting sites even when roads were limited. The improvements are just a start but these owners deserve a "10" for customer service and guest comfort. I can't wait to visit again next year to see all the changes. If you enjoy a hometown feel and welcoming company you are picking the best place in town. Public hunting sites are close by and easy to locate from Prairie View. Thanks again for the great stay and making sure we survived the blizzard! We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Tent Trailer.

PPA rate. New owners since June, very friendly. Bathrooms clean, but need modernizing. Site not level. Lots of highway noise, so bring a white noise machine or fan. Rumbling train noise at 5 am. Not bad for an overnight stay. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Basic prairie park. Limited shade, pull through sites. No cable, Wi-Fi, antenna TV. Older but pretty clean bathrooms. Driveway has ruts in it so drive in/out slowly. Wanted low cost stop for the night with electricity for the AC unit. If you want low cost w/o electricity try the rest stop across the road as WY allows overnight "parking" and the rest stop looked nice and modern. Rate reflects Passport America. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
Bypassed this park on the highway so stopped and asked directions. The neighbor told me he thought the place was closed and that it had been for sale for quite some time. I drove into the driveway and there was a small child (7-ish) sitting on a table outside the office. He said his parents would be home in awhile. I parked anyhow as there was another motorhome parked in the campground. The water pressure and the amperage from the electrical outlet was good. The sites are somewhat unlevel. The $13.25 reflects Passport America discount. I would not camp there again. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
First off, the entry at the cattle guard is deeply rutted as is the driveway right at the office so go slowly. The sites are pull throughs, the 50 amp service works well, the water pressure was fine until the managers started filling their big inflatable swimming pool. Sites 7-10 have big pine trees growing over the sites so that if you have slideouts you won't be able to open them without badly scraping the sides of your rig. The other sites are open. Price is with the Passport America discount. Okay for an overnight stay. No antenna channels available, good Verizon and AT&T signals, no wi-fi provided by the campground. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
WOW! What to say? We pulled in and this place is for sale, not taken care of at all. The grass has not been cut in a long time. There are pot holes everywhere. There were only 3 or 4 RV's / trailers even here. Would not recommend staying here at all. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
Sites are grass, roads are gravel. Has some 30-amp and some 50-amp sites. There were a couple of potholes as we drove the Bulgemobile in and out of the park, but nothing worse than we often see. Turns are navigable by a big rig with a little planning. We were the only customers the night we stayed (May 1). The 50-amp power was excellent. The park is right off US 18, but there was no significant road noise. Coal trains went by about a mile away, but all we heard was an occasional rumble and a distant whistle. They allow unlimited length stays at the $13.25 Passport America rate. The restrooms were locked up; I don't think they had yet opened them for the season. The park was unattended. You fill out the form and drop your money in the box. We received good value for our money and would stop here again while in Lusk. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a really basic campground: just okay for an overnight stop. The manager was friendly and the site was level. The park could have been cleaner, and roads in better condition however. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This park would not be a bad overnight stopover BUT the road leading into the park was covered with HUGE potholes which were filled with water following rains. We entered VERY slowly but still the holes were so horrible that we broke a connector on our hot water heater because of the rocking of the coach in the holes. There was no one there the 3 nights we stayed (no staff - no owner - no workkampers). We left our money in an envelope. There were many other available sites other than the main row we stayed on but (as we understand it) the water had frozen over the winter and they had never been repaired soooo no water on any of those sites. We learned from another camper there that if we went out the "back" way we could avoid the potholes which we did when we left. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
I ditto the statements of the previous rater in May '08. No puddles in the driveway but the potholes were still there. Nothing has changed since May and the park is in really run down condition. When I tried to level with my jacks one of them sunk into the dirt. We packed up and went into Lusk to BJ's Campground which is nothing to write home about but was paradise compared to Prairie View. All the parks we have stayed at in Wyoming are very over priced for what you get. We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
Driveway STILL full of muddy deep potholes. Would have bypassed the place but park driveway is off a cul-de-sac. Stayed here on Passport America for $10. Park is a real dump. When leaving we found Lusk to be a pretty town and will come back some time, but not to this park! We camped at Prairie View Campground in a Motorhome.
