I didn't think this was a bad place to stay. I found it to be very clean. It is in an industrial part of town so I wouldn't recommend an extended stay if you are looking for a better camp experience but it was great for just a stop over on our way through town. The host was very friendly and personable.

We wanted to stop here on our way through and stretch our legs. It was very windy and cold but the building were quaint and set against a beautiful landscape. I gave this three stars only because we couldn't tour all the buildings, tour season must be closed, but we did go into the visitor center to read the history and see the displays. It was warm and cozy in there and the couple missionaries were friendly and helpful. If you are into Mormon history or had family members in the handcart companies then you should stop here. They have plaques with all the names, including the pioneers who didn't make it, hanging on the wall.

I absolutely loved stopping here and taking a tour. The guide did a great job and related some very interesting facts and stories about the prison. Even though a grim place, we learned a lot and had a fun time. The tour takes an hour and is well worth a stop if you are passing through Rawlings, Wyoming.
