Our Opinion: Neutral. Nice little park, but the price is high. There is a less nice RV park on the west side of town that participates in Passport America, $10 for FHU. We would try that one next time.

Date of Stay: June 18th, 2008.

Weather During Stay: Sunny and warm (upper 70’s) when we arrived, with puffy white clouds. Under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch from 6 pm until midnight, and under an actual severe thunderstorm for about 45 minutes. Low forecast to be in the low 50's.

Site Description: This small park is bisected by a residential street, with about a dozen sites on each side - 30 amp electric on one side, 50 amps on the other. Long, level, gravel FHU pull throughs with cable TV, a covered picnic table and grass at each site. Good electric service; good water pressure. No shade. Very tidy. We were in site 16.

Rate: $33/night. This was a shock; we were expecting to pay around $24, as rates quoted by campers last year were $22/night.

Phone/radio/TV: Verizon reception is strong, aircard alternates between Broadband and speedy National Access. Excellent cable TV. Didn’t try the antenna. Fuzzy NPR station from Douglas, WY on 89.5.

Elevation/Landscape/Terrain: This is a small park in a residential section of a small town at 5,100‘. Views are of tidy homes, grass, small trees and flat streets. There is a small park across the street.

Lighting/Noise: Minimal noise, just residential traffic. Noise typical for a commercial park: we pulled the awning down over the bedroom window and closed our shades to keep the lights out of our eyes.

Favorite Sites: Any of the 50 amp pull through sites are fine.

Hiking/Walking: Around town and on quiet residential streets. We had a pleasant walk along the main street of town to a city on the far north end of town, 3 or 4 miles round trip.

Comments: Though this is a pleasant little park, $33/night is too much to pay for an average park with no special amenities. If we come through Lusk again, we will stay at the less nice Passport America park on the west side of town, Prairie View Campground.
