8 Parks near Medora, North Dakota
Jun 2016 - $6.00
A great no hookups park that has easy access to Interstate and big rig friendly. Paved roads and paved site driveways. Sites have table, firepit, grass and some shade. No water or dump available, but an excellent park for location and price! - RJourney

This quiet little campground is located near the Theodore Roosevelt National Park about a mile north of I-94 in North Dakota. There are about 37 sites total, each with tightly packs gravel pads. Most sites are level, but there are a few that could be a challenge. Every site has a relatively large grassy lawn, picnic table, and fire ring.
This is completely dry campground. There are no hookups (electric, water, or sewer) at the individual sites. There are pit toilets, water spigots, and pay-per-use showers, but water was not available at the time this review was written. According to the camp host, lightning struck the water pump in 2011 and it has not been repaired since. There is no dump station either, so dump your tanks and fill up on fresh water before you arrive. If you are solar powered, you are in luck because at least half of the sites are sunny.
Internet was a bit of a challenge. We were able to get 4 bars of AT&T voice, but no data. On Verizon, our standard reception was ranging between 1 bar of 1x to 2 bars of 3G, also with no data. Once we hooked up our range extender though, we were able to get a solid 2 bars of Verizon LTE and data that was fast enough to stream movies with little to no lag.
This was a great place to stay and we will stay here again the next time we are passing through on I-94. - technogypsies

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

Nice city campground. The pull-thru sites were pretty close (way too close when your neighbor starts the diesel at 6:00) but adequate and long enough for our tow vehicle. Our site was quite shady which was great on a hot August day. The hook-ups were easy to use and the laundry was clean and good. It was $1.00 to wash and $.25 to dry. Can you ask for better prices?
It was close to town and the National Park and the chimney which marks the old packing house. You can also walk to the Chateau de Mores.
We would definitely stay here again. - swike

We were concerned about the mediocre ratings this park got. From beginning to end we found it more than adequate. The sites were narrow and we can see how it gets heavy use, but it was convenient to town and the Roosevelt Narional Park. Staff was more than helpful not only in the park but in making reservations for the different activities in town. We had adequate satellite service and good Verizon Wifi. We would have no problem staying here again. - california traveler

Dusty lanes surround your rig. Beautiful cottonwoods are plentiful. Short walk to the river. - bobbodean

We echo the reviews below from 2016. Can only beat the bush so hard... Teddy Roosevelt Nat. park and the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame is the big draw here, and the park is OK for a 2-3 day stay. Nothing spectacular, just a general gravel road park needing some updating. Site was average and we did pay the $2.00 extra fee for cable which was nothing short of terrible, but better than zero stations available over the air! Convenient to town is the key phrase here. - AlaskaJack

We camped here for two nights in order to Golf at Bully Pulpit golf Course on our way to Billings MT. Previous reviews complained about the crowdedness. Yes, the park is tight, but it isn't as bad as some others we've stayed at. The water pressure was good. We felt is was a good value. Other campgrounds were either closed for the season a bit "out of town" for our taste. We would stay here again if we are in the area. - rlhoge

There are few alternatives in this area with the state and National Park campsites with no utilities. Spaces are close and on fairly level gravel. Interior roads are also gravel and dirt so heavy rains cause potholes. If full maneuverability would be difficult in some back in spaces. Laundry room was clean and $2/load and $1/dryer load. Cable was an extra $2/night. Free WiFi worked well. Verizon data and cell worked well. No area to walk dogs in park however there is a wide sidewalk along a grassy area on the main road. - bbmidwife

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

Gorgeous dry campground just off of I-94 near Medora, ND. There were no trees for shade or screening in the Whitetail Flats loop, but we travel with two large dogs so absolutely loved that the RV sites are really widely spaced, so we didn't have to worry about shortening tie outs.
Cedar loop sites are much smaller and very shaded, but I would describe them as nicely spaced compared to many other campgrounds. We saw some RVs in that loop, but mostly smaller trailers and pop-ups.
Little Muddy Breaks loop is all horse sites with corrals in each. Plenty of big horse trailer/RV combos in that area. The whole park is easy to navigate with a larger rig (lots of room to turn around, etc.). No water or power in the individual sites, there are pay showers and restrooms at the top of the Whitetail Flats loop. A dump station and potable water are located at the entrance to the campground.
We paid a total of $21 for one night. $12 for our site, $4 reservation fee (we reserved in advance via phone), and $5 day pass for the state park. - Canadian in Minnesota

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

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

Stayed here one night. The site was a pull through (almost all are), there were lots of trees, picnic table was separated from the pull through, there were paths to the bathrooms which were not too far. The bathrooms were clean. Campground was quiet. I would stay here again. - mntraveler

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient for bicycling in TRNP, south unit. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We camped here on a weeknight in late August.
This is a beautiful, small campground within the National Park. There are no hookups. There is water at the entrance and a dump station in nearby Medora. There's quite a variety of sites, some with views, full shade, full sun, pull throughs. Half can be reserved. The other half are first come first served. We arrived at 2pm without reservations and found a nice site. The campground was full by 3pm. There is no wifi. ATT and Veriizon coverage was ok. The National Park staff was friendly and helpful and enforced all rules. - dsvt

Rate reflects 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. This is dry camping at its best. There are no hookups; there is fresh water for filling a tank, which you will see as you enter the campground. There is no dump; dumping is available for $5 in Medora at the municipal campground. Half the sites are reservable, half (even numbered) are first-come. As you enter the campground, about five miles from the entrance of the Park over a rough paved road, you are faced with a choice of pull-through or back-in. Go for the pull-through, as the sites are bigger and nicer and offer more privacy. When we arrived mid-morning without reservations, there were about six sites that would have worked, to varying degrees, for us. By around noon everything was taken. Some sites have some shade. Like it or not, the generator policy is very liberal from 8 to 8. Fortunately, during our visit, campers did not abuse the policy by leaving generators running continuously. Many sites are very generous in size, pleasant, and most are very level. We were able to get satellite using our portable dish. We had weak, but usable, Verizon voice and data. This is a great base for visiting the Park and surrounding area. We would certainly stay here again. - TheJim

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
