11 Parks near Belfield, North Dakota
Jul 2016 - $35.00
There are 20 sites here. All sites have 20/30/50 amp, water and electric.
That's all there is. No restrooms or showers. No Wi-Fi. No manager/owner on site. Water pressure was so low we had to use our on board pump to take showers. You put your check in a drop box when you arrive. Sites are overgrown but the weeds were mowed. Trees need trimming so as not to run on your RV. All sites slope toward the North. I would not recommend this park unless maybe they start taking Passport America. At $35 a night ($200 a week) this place is way over priced. Oh yea, there is nothing in the town of Belfield to do. - jprisbe

This place needs work. The the pull through sites are unlevel grass, ours had deep depressions where we need to park. The access roads through the restaurant parking lot are very rough. Most of the full hookup sites are taken by long term residents, looking quite trashy. Not really worth the $24 paid, but it's the only place in town. The other "campground" here, is now filled with permanent FEMA surplus trailers being used possibly as rentals. Upside, the sites are larger than those found at the two private campgrounds in Medora and not as dusty. - Teacher's Pet

Upside: good restaurant, Dairy Queen next door, friendly staff Downside: 18-wheelers rolling around, freeway and highway noise, train nearby, laundry is at motel not at campground and not an easy walk with a full basket of laundry, dusty - Oldtymrs

The park is convenient to Teddy Roosevelt NP. It had good 50 amp, water pressure, no sewer, wifi was non existent. The lots were quite close. The interior roads became mud holes after the heavy rain. AT&T was good. The staff was friendly but wow, they need to clean out that office. The park itself could use some TLC with signage and mowing. The park is HEAVILY used because of the NP. We stayed her for 3 days and probably not return. - walt66

We rated this campground with one star out of 10 and as "Terrible" in every category. We could go on and on about how we felt about Red Trail Campground but it will suffice to just say that we would not stay here again and we would not recommend it to others.
Our recommendation to other campers is, before handing over any money either cash or by credit card, ask to see the site where this campground plans to park you. You might just decide to move on to another campground. We wish that we had done this before paying. There are a number of options available in or near Medora and in our opinion, all are far superior to this park. - Hiker Hap

Not your top of the world campground but it's close to Medora, walking distance to downtown, the outdoor Musical is only a few miles, and there is enough space for 39' fifth wheel. Folk are friendly and helpful. No full hookup at our site, electric and water only. We did see a few with full hook ups, don't know if they are full timers here or not. The only thing is the grassy area at campsites aren't mowed but they stay full all the time. Picnic tables are nice, aluminum. You are taken to your site which is a plus in my book. I would stay here again if in the area. - eagle on the move

Great location close to Medora, the musical, and the national park. Otherwise it is a very average campground. Registration staff was very helpful and efficient. Roads and campsites are gravel and dirt. The back-in sites have some shade and space, the pull-through sites are in the open, short, and very close together. The bathrooms were fairly clean. Wifi worked slowly. There was enough space along the park to walk a dog. The park is adequate for an overnight to see the local sights. - JoyceM

We loved this park! The location is excellent: just a few minutes from the entrance to Teddy Roosevelt NP and the town of Medora.
Mature cottonwood trees provide lots of shade. We were in the "30 amp long, full hookups" portion of the park and these sites had the most room. Some of the other sections were a bit close together, but not awful. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean, especially for a full campground. The Wi-Fi was okay. We had full LTE cell coverage (AT&T). The staff were all friendly.
We stayed one night in site 131. We wished we had booked longer because this campground and Teddy Roosevelt NP are worth more time. We would certainly stay here again. - texasAUtiger

As others have said this park is very close to the National Park entrance, which we look for. The sites are very close together. Our table and lounge chairs were sitting right on top of our neighbor's sewer hookup and these are not well sealed. We had heavy rain our last night and the water pooled everywhere. No cable or over the air channels or radio stations. The WiFi was okay until the park filled up and then it went to a crawl. Bring a good book for the evenings.
To visit the park we would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

We stayed at Sully Creek State Park based on the "Excellent" reviews. We registered and paid for 2 nights, but only made it through one night before we relocated. The ambiance of the park is just okay. No real enduring factors.
Issue 1: There is a sign posted when entering the park about driving slow due to the dust. This was certainly not obeyed. Issue 2: The site across from us ran their generator all night (I know this isn't necessarily the park's fault, but the host should enforce the rules). Issue 3: its a fairly rough road to get down into the park. Issue 4: you're basically setup in an open field with no shade (there are some shaded sites, but bigger rigs don't fit). Just wasn't our cup of tea so we relocated to an RV park in town. - OpenRoadJedi

This park is usually the first night and last night of a several week trip to Montana and Wyoming. It is just the right distance from home for one hard day of driving.
I am there in the fall and at times there have been few or no other campers, other times the horse portion of the campground a bit busy.
It is quiet and away from interstate noise, will at times hear trains but along way off. Have your choice of open or in tree cover depending on preference and rig size. Place was well kept and clean, the park ranger very nice.
This is the type of quiet off the beaten path places I always try and find, hate crowed and overly commercial campgrounds. - Twinpups

$10 per night was for a primitive site on level gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. Additionally, we purchased the annual park permit for $20 for our RV and $20 for our tow vehicle. There were water spigots throughout the park as well as at the dump station. There were very nice pay shower stalls within the campground. If you like walking/hiking/biking/horse riding there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The southern entrance to the 120-mile Mah Daah Hey trail begins in the campground. The main campground loop is out in the open and any size RV will fit on the sites. The Muddy Breaks loop, which includes corrals, is devoted to campers with horses. The Cedar loop of the park is set up for camping units that are no higher than 10’ or wider than 9’. The last half mile drive into the campground is on a red dirt road which is quite dusty when dry and muddy when wet. The night sky is gorgeous, as are the sunsets. The campground is out in the country but only three miles from the town of Medora and the southern unit of the Theodore Roosevelt NP. There is some shopping in Medora and several good restaurants but prices seem a bit high. Cell phone service on AT&T is two bars of 4G. Verizon data coverage is was 4G LTE so we used our Millenicom Jetpack for Internet access. There was no over-the-air TV. - DD Rolling Ranch

This is a better than average national park without hookups. It was very hot when I arrived, which worried me because I hate to bother people with my noisy generator, and I do not do well in hot weather. Luckily, generator hours were from 8-8 pm, which is very generous, so I was able to stay cool the first night. In addition, sites are fairly spread out and the side of my rig where the generator was located was facing away from other campers, so I felt comfortable that I was not bothering anyone. My site was a very long pull-through with room for another RV or even two! There were a few trees for shade, but I was still able to get satellite by moving back and forth to find the right spot. Very quiet area. - judy_online

Park was nice with several sites available early in the morning. It is tight with a big rig--some branches need to be trimmed. Several sites could hold a 40' motorhome. However, with the tree branches it really negates a lot of options. Trimming branches is an easy fix that would allow more people to enjoy a National Park. I really could love this park with just a little more care given to tree trimming. - illini777

After struggling to park our 34' 5th wheel in our assigned campsite (advertised as 80'), the camp host suggested we move to an open site, which was actually an asphalt parking lot. Fortunately, the campground was not full, and the host's solution was perfect! The ranger and camp hosts were friendly and attentive. As a previous reviewer pointed out, trees are a problem. A little branch trimming would go a long way. My issue, if any, is with the on-line reservation process, which makes it really difficult to gauge whether or not a site will accommodate our rig. This campground is dry camping only, and there is no dump station. - CO2RV

$15 a night for primitive camping and $25 a night for full hookups. We stayed on the primitive side and the lake was beautiful but the recreation area was behind a train track and industrial area and there was quite a bit of environmental noise. We booked online but the booth was unmanned because it was off season and the signage was very unclear. We called and the person who answered was friendly and directed us to our site. The sites were small and we actually had to move to 25 to accommodate us. Fire rings are set behind the RV or on the wrong side. It's really designed more for tent campers and the site itself was more of a patch in the ground. It was ok for an overnight but I wouldn't stay here for any length of time. - Lee and Trace

This is an okay campground for a night or two. Gravel sites are all in one long row along a paved interior road and all looked reasonably level. Five sites are 50Amp (one reserved for handicap) and 17 sites are 30Amp. All have water and no sewer and there is a dump. All sites are 90 degree back-ins but it wasn't difficult since there's nothing across the road from your site to get in the way. I saw a 45' bus in a site. If he can get in, anyone can get in! I was able to back in far enough to tuck my pickup and 5er in the site (53' nose to tail). Rate includes $3 for park entry. As others mentioned, trains are a detractor. The bathroom had two unisex separate rooms, each with a plumbed toilet, sink, and shower. The toilets were pretty disgusting but the showers weren't bad. There's no wifi or cable. Satellite would work from most sites. Both ATT & Verizon had 4G good signals. You can reserve & pay for a site online from their web page or at the entry booth. None of the RVs looked long term or like oil field workers. I'd say they are enforcing their 2-week maximum stay. We'd stay here again. - Danno

Nice park. Great price for seniors. Negative: 12 trains went by overnight. A nearby crossing meant many train horns during the night. Otherwise, ok. We stayed one night. - MsLucy

We stayed here because our grandson is permanently camped here - oil field work. Most of the sites are permanent. All dirt with no grass in the parking area. Rate was high, no discounts for anyone. With the oil workers, they can get that price. Owner was very nice, but we would not stay here again. - MsLucy

This was a very adequate park for our purpose. W-Fi only around the office. Cable was out of service when we were here. Utilities have just been replaced in the last year or so. Only one site was available for overnight stays, as most sites are used by long-term workers. Anywhere in western North Dakota I would not plan on staying without calling ahead because of extremely high usage by oil field and construction workers. Park manager was very accommodating and helpful. The park was sold about a year ago which answers some of the previous comments. We stayed for three nights and would definitely stay again. - gene a

Average facility. The WiFi was only functional at the deck adjacent to the office. Our 37' long fifth wheel and truck did not completely fit into the pull through site. Fortunately the sites are wide enough to allow us to park at a diagonal and make do. There is a RR track very close nearby with very loud trains that interrupted our sleep. The hosts were OK but not overly friendly. There was no escort to the site. The sewer connection drain holes are crushed 2 liter plastic pop bottles. Somewhat uneven sites. In a pinch stay here, but you might want to look elsewhere if you have the time. - Bill Thibadeau

This review is influenced by the poor weather. It had apparently rained heavily the day before and the roads and sites were a mess. Our site was a mud bog with little streams running through it. We have a big rig and were placed in the B section, which are pull thru sites with no site development at all. Just a dirt spot, a few weeds for grass and a picnic table. Sites are long but fall off on the ends. There are other pull through sites, thinking the A section, that are nicer but shorter and share a patio. The one thing that made this stop good was killer WiFi. Utilities worked fine. Restrooms were clean. No cable. - VegasVagabonds

Large park, part of which has park model and mobile homes. Obviously built or expanded due to oil boom a few years ago. Mostly workers and transients. RV sites looked to be about 50% occupied at this time. All sites appear very large/long and transients are kept in different areas. Only complaint (if there really is one) is that A row pull-thru sites face each other. We stayed 3 nights and never had a patio neighbor. Had a great experience and the office staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay again. - Phil Hyde

I had an emergency and spent several hours in the local emergency room. I knew it would be after dark when I got released, so I called this campground about a reservation that night. I do not usually drive or back up into a spot after dark, and the office would be closed, so the owner very kindly told me to call again and he would meet me at the office and check me in, as well as help me park, which I really appreciated.
I ended up with a very long gravel space near the office which was fine. Luckily I had a 50 amp converter, but he would have loaned me one. I was very relieved to be able to find this place and get so much help getting in and hooked up, especially since I was still shaky and having effects from pain meds. I would stay here again. - judy_online

This is a very quite and rustic campground well off interstate where all you hear are the birds singing, horses whinnying and an occasional coyote. Full hookups and pull thru's abound. This campground is 2 miles west of Medora in Buffalo Gap, ND. Very friendly staff and great food. They specialize in rib-eye steaks, but warning, they have a secret sauce that they marinate the steaks in and if you are like me who thinks putting any kind of steak sauce on a great steak is sacrilegious then be sure to order your steak dry. However, if you like putting sauce on your meat then you will love the secret sauce the owner cooks it in. My ol' Pappy always said, son if you have to put sauce on something to eat it then it ain't fittin'.Lol
This is a working ranch and camp sites are gravel with sparse grass and ample room between sites. The down side is you have 1 ½ mile gravel road into campground that has a lot of wash-boarding. No big deal, you just have to go slow.
We stayed 9 night's in order to take in all the attraction's and will defiantly stay here again. - Deputydan

How do you rate a farm yard? That's what your staying in. The RV sites are now 30 hastily built un-level narrow sites in the middle of a farm yard. The utilities are haphazard arranged requiring long hoses and cables. The sites drop over 12" front to back and have no amenities like table or fire pit. Only a few sites are full hookup most are electric and water. There is an expensive bar/restaurant on site and many shabby motel rooms. Yes it's a guest ranch, but a poor one. Did I mention you have to drive 1.5 miles over a rough gravel road to get there. Cross this one off your list. - lllkrob

We stayed here because it was the only campground in Medora that was still open. We had water and 30 amp elec-- no sewer but they have a dump station. Our site was small, sort of level and had some gravel but was a little muddy. Not a great place for non-horse owner/rider camping but OK for the price. The personnel nice and friendly. If we're ever in Medora again we'll stay here... unless another campground is open. - tajmahaulers
