RV Park Rating – BJ’s (Lusk, WY)
Before we move onto South Dakota a quick review of the stop-over site we stayed at in Lusk, WY
This park doesn’t have a dedicated site, but location is here : BJ’s Lusk, WY
- Site Quality = 4/5
The sites here are all excellent. Large, gravel (very level) pull-throughs with full hook-ups, and a well-trimmed green slice with a bench between campers. Only ding is few sites have shade and it can get very hot in the summer day here.
- Facilities = 5/5
Very nice facilities here. They’re small, but very quaint. The owner did a nice job of putting colorful paint and cutsie touches in each restroom (pictures, decor) and it’s kept spotlessly clean.
- Amenities = 2.5/5
There’s very basic amenities here, but they all work as they should. Laundry and Wi-Fi (free) cover what’s available.
- Location = 3/5
Lusk is an odd location. It’s a town located about half-way between Cheyenne and the Black Hills so it gets a lot of through-traffic, but it’s not much of a destination in itself. A 10-block radius covers everything including a grocer, a few bars, a hardware store and other basics. The surrounding area is farmland.
- Pet Friendliness = 4/5
The owner is pet-friendly (no breed restrictions), but the campground is located in the middle of the city so not a lot of hiking opportunities. There’s a fairgrounds ~4 blocks from the site which has open space for doggie to run around, plus there’s a few side-roads with not a lot of traffic.
Overall rating = 3.7
Summary: This was a stop-over location for us on the road between Cheyenne, WY and the Black Hills in SD. The town is small enough to spit across (only ~10 blocks) and so is the campground covering 2 blocks and housing ~20 RV’s. As a stop-over it worked perfectly. The sites are large and kept very nice, the bathrooms are spotless, the hookups, laundromat and Wi-Fi work as they should and the owner has made an extra effort to put little cute touches to the place. Just don’t expect extra amenities or a hopping town. Not a destination vacation, but perfectly fine as a one-night stop.SPONSORED LINK:
