This is a park run by the Bowman Parks & Recreation Department, and is located midway between Medora, ND and Belle Fourche, SD. You pick up an envelope at the entrance of the park, select your site and then deposit payment in the fee box. Entry from the main highway (Hwy 12) is good for big rigs. Once in the park, depending upon which direction you wish to go, a few of the turns can be tight due to trees. The map at the entrance indicates there are five loops, two of which offer 50 amp service. However, if you need 50 amp service, check the site, as not all sites in the 50 amp loop offer 50 amp service. We were approached by the camp host shortly after we drove through one of the 50 amp loops. There were no 50 amp sites available, but the camp host directed us to a 30 amp site in the other 50 amp loop. The camp host was friendly, welcoming, and offered information about places to go/things to do in Bowman. The interior roads of the park are dirt and the sites are grass. Large/heavy rigs should be prepared to use blocks for leveling. There were numerous semi-permanent road construction workers living in the park, but their sites were tidy. It appears there is a 14 day stay limit, unless prior approval for a longer stay is granted by the city. Although the park advertises electric only, folks were leaving their water hoses connected to the spigots, with hoses running long distances, and across the road. There is a play area for children. The men's room shower had a push button start, the temperature of which could not be regulated. Verizon service worked well here. There is a large field near the entrance to the park that's a good pet walking area. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very basic campground, but great for overnight. 5 different loops...some have 20 amp some have 50. No water hook-up, but there are taps that provide potable water throughout the campground. Some picnic tables. No Wi-Fi. Personally we wouldn't want to stay here longer than a few days because of the no water and no sewer hook-ups, but a reasonably priced campground that's easy to get in to. Sites are gravel or brown dead grass. Some are level...some not so much. Very quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this to be an okay park in a tough terrain. Lots of grass and some trees to break the wind. Sites were level and the park was quiet. We had one train pass by at about 9:00 am., which was fine. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this little campground after checking out a larger campground in the area and not loving it. It is on highway 85 as you head north. We had decided to head north to the Roosevelt National Park, but were tired from a long day and really wanted to stop but had decided to keep going. My husband saw the little sign out of the corner of his eye and we drove over to check it out. There was no one else there so we pulled in. The sites are arranged around the edges of the campground. We found one that had lovely shade, near a big tree. There are picnic tables as well. This is not a fancy campground but it was cozy and friendly and just what we needed for the night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
