8 RV Parks near Medora, North Dakota

This campground was a pleasant surprise. We were on our way home from Montana and didn't want to pay a lot to stay overnight. With our Senior Pass we paid half off or $3 for a spacious campsite in a very well-kept campground. There were probably 5 others in the campground, making for a quiet, restful stop. The bathrooms and showers were closed for the season, but it wasn't a big deal for us since we're self-contained. Would definitely stop again on our way through. - Marsha D

This is a boondocking campground that is convenient for visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit. With the senior pass National Park discount, the rate is $3/night instead of $6/night. We were a little concerned about finding a site that could accommodate our 43' motorhome and have decent Verizon service. We found that site 13, a double wide site, on the upper loop, accomplished both of these tasks for us. I think it could have been a challenge getting into and leveled in many of the sites - while they appear to be reasonably level side-to-side, they are very sloping front to back, hard for a long motorhome to level. There were some comments about no water here, but there is water in the bathhouses, and there are spigots around the campground (though they do not appear to have fittings for attaching a hose even for filling a tank). There is no dump station and no dumpster for trash. There is no reservation system, so you are limited to what is available when you get here - I think as long as you are not coming in Friday afternoon or Saturday that it is likely that you may find a site that meets your needs. - pattic777

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

I chose this place because we wanted to get away for a few days, and it certainly fit that need. If you are going to be leaving on a regular basis during your stay, I would find another campground. Somewhat easy to find as it is right off the highway but there needs to be a sign to stay straight on the gravel road instead of turning left on the paved road. We stayed next to the horse pens, and while our site was huge, the connections are a bit far. We did manage to reach, but it took some maneuvering. The view was very pleasant, and there were a lot of folks taking their horses for a ride in the country. There is also a shooting range here. The restaurant/bar on the property can be lively on the weekend, but you don't really hear it from your site. No wifi, but Verizon got good service. My power outlet didn't get great voltage, so when I ran my air conditioner, I couldn't run other high voltage items (hair iron, toaster, etc) at the same time. The other thing was that the bathrooms weren't cleaned before we got there. They were a mess & had no toilet paper. Right before we left, they cleaned them. Had they cleaned them before we got there, this place would be an 8/10. Overall, this place gave me exactly what I wanted - a ranch experience & a place to get away for a few days. I would certainly return. - RLT1

When it's the weekend and everything is booked in Medora, and you want full hookup because temps are in the high 80's, this is where you end up. Mediocre campground. Site was just long enough for my 31' Coach and small tow car. Located 1 1/2 miles down a washboard gravel road. Tow car was unrecognizable from dirt and dust when we arrived. Had quite a time locating our site. We were shown a map in the bar/office. Finally figured out their numbering system. We were set up for an hour when there was a knock on the door, owner stating we needed to move over 6' to the gravel from the dirt (hard to tell the difference). An escort to your site would go a long way here. There are no showers. There was a laundry--two washers (one broken) and 2 dryers. I guess the bathroom is in the bar. Hookups did work well, however, no wifi at sites. Verizon coverage was fine, and nothing to block the satellite dish reception (like a tree for shade). It rained the last night we stayed and there was mud and wet everywhere in the morning when packing up. Hose and electric cord covered in mud. Should have stayed down the road with shade even if no hookups--at least the road is paved! - RagTopDay

We wanted to stay near Theodore Roosevelt National Park and had friends who were staying at this campground. We checked and they had availability for our rig during the week - they were sold out for a motorcycle rally on the weekend. We elected to get 30A service at $25/night rather than 50A at $30/night (plus tax) as it was cool enough that we would not need multiple air conditioners. The sites are a little odd in that there are pretty long sites that you could pull through as long as no one was assigned to and occupying the site behind. While the water and sewer was in the appropriate place for our utility hookup, the electric was on the opposite side so we had to run the power cord underneath our rig. - pattic777

Pulled in without a reservation & got an OK site. Dirt pad, dirt roads. Trees. So there was shade. At $42 for the night it seemed pricey for what we got. Lots of family's there looking like they were having lots of fun. - TRDAWG

Positives: Very, very close to the entrance of Theodor Roosevelt NP. Pretty nice setting as well. Has a playground my kids enjoyed. Negatives: The sites were too close (but plenty long). I made sure that I left enough room next to my neighbor's picnic table as to not crowd them when I pulled in, but the neighbors on the other side of me did not do the same. We had maybe 2' of clearance between our picnic table and the neighbor's rig. I think the price is too much considering how packed in the sites were & given the location. Bathrooms were adequate & had tp, hand soap and hand dryers. Did not shower there. Wish I had stayed inside TRNP instead. - 5th Wheel Family

A bit expensive for what you get, but excellent location to T. Roosevelt NP. Our site was extremely close to our drivers side neighbor. Site next door was a very short pull through. Their awning almost touched our slide out. We could see straight into their coach as they could see into ours. Park is mostly gravel and dirt. Rained first day and water and mud puddles stayed for our 3 days there. Our sewer hookup was under our neighbor's table. Careful walking pets as there is prickly pear cactus in perimeter areas. - Motorhome girl

The park is older, and the office looked it. After getting setup, wife went to restroom and found it filthy including mold on shower curtain. I later checked out men's and found it the same with one of three toilets looking like it exploded. I noticed a gum wrapper and piece of twine on floor and watched both stay in place for the week we were there, confirming bathrooms were never cleaned. - Michael67

Stayed at this park the last week of September, when possibly any other option, and most businesses in town, were already closed for the season. Arrived after dark late in the evening but had no trouble checking in, and someone showed us to our site, which was a long pull-through with water and electric but no sewer. Not many other campers here this time of year, and we were pretty much gone from sunup to sundown exploring Theodore Roosevelt NP. Campground was quiet as a mouse after dark, never saw another soul outside of their RVs. The park is older, and the office looked it, but how many travelers these days really use the parks bathroom & showers anyway? Not many who are in a fully-equipped RV, from my experience. We stayed 2 nights in Red Trail and were happy enough with the service & value. - VW_Vista

This is an older park, convenient location to visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park. May have once been a KOA. The roads are dirt/gravel and looks like all the sites are back in. The utilities were fine and the cable TV (which we paid extra for) was good, but we hooked up our satellite anyway to get our local baseball team game. The bathrooms didn't seem very clean and not well maintained. We did not use the showers - they didn't seem very clean. Some other negatives - the young gal who checked us in did seem quite young and not very helpful or personable. Even though we paid extra for the cable she did not offer the channel list. We had to go back and ask for that later. Also - the young man who escorted us to our site was trying to tell me how to back into it even though my partner was there giving me the usual and very good directions. The "escort" was not helpful. Anyone who pulls a trailer knows that it is often a team effort best accomplished by a team that has worked together. I finally had to tell the young man that I was getting too many directions and I asked him to just let my partner and I do it. He said he was supposed to but I said that my partner and I had been doing it together for nearly 10 years and we will all get done sooner if he just let us do it. According to the "campground" rules they gave us our "escort" is required to stay until we have stopped moving. So he did but he did just let us work together without him. The rules also stated that if we move after the escort has left that we should be prepared to move again if we are not within our boundaries. This was a first for us. They didn't offer the usual park map - just a list of rules. Didn't see very friendly to us. They must have had problems in the past. With all of that said we would stay here again if we happened to be passing through. - NiMo

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

Site worked well for our travel trailer and truck, pull through and easy to navigate. Needed blocking. Ranger talk in the evening was very nice, no hiking from campgrounds, but many trails in park. Above ground grill, no fire pit. - dalebonnie

We stayed at site #23 in the Cottonwood Campground in the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It was a very large pull-thru site with an excellent view of the Badlands. There are no services at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. There is a dump station in the North Unit, but if you are in the South Unit you are out of luck. The North Unit and the South Unit are 70 miles apart. There are washrooms with flush toilets, but there are no shower facilities in the Park at all. There is also nowhere to buy wood, or ice, and even though you are allowed to have fires, there are no fire pits. You are expected to use the camp grill for your fires- bringing your own fire dish is not allowed. The sites though, are huge- especially the pull-thru ones. The people occupying the site across from us parked a 35ft. motorhome AND a trailer on their site! The campground is fairly shaded as it is set among the Cottonwoods along the Little Missouri River. So while short on amenities, you can't beat this place for wildlife- you are literally camping amongst it. Several times buffalo were walking up and down the campground roads and between the sites, and the wild horses were seen grazing along the river from our site. Not to mention the easy access to the wildlife driving loop where more wildlife could be observed. We have a generator which we used during the appropriate times so the lack of hook-ups was not as issue, and we only stayed for 2 days.I loved the nature and the size of the sites but as far as the campground I probably wouldn't spend much more time here than we allotted. - RVplacestogo

Inside the South Unit of Roosevelt NP. No hook ups, potable water available, but no dump site. Marginal Verizon wireless connection. Roads inside campground are narrow with lots of low hanging branches. Many pull through sites, but difficult to get the trailer in and out. No fire pit they provide a charcoal grill, but couldn't use it due to burn ban. - Bburgbrewer

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

We stayed for about a week. Our site had water , sewer and electric right there and was easy to hook up to. The park was clean and quiet. The stay was great. Sites are kind of close together but there are trees in between and surrounding the whole rv park. - MakenzieAdams

Spaces were wide and adequate for a big rig. Site was not level we had to move to another site. Not much grass for walking your dog. Would probably stay here again if we were to visit Medora again. - Pete M.

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
Sep 2007 - $24.00
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
