For a forest service campground, they take lousy care of their trees. They are overgrown into the road and hang way too low to clear our motorhome or probably any fifth wheeler. We were able to back up the one way road into the end site and that worked. Otherwise we would not have stayed. The park is convenient and at $6 is not bad, considering there are zero services except water is available. The sites are generally small but some are large enough for our 40ft motorhome or a large RV. They are not at all level, however, and some have pretty bad slopes unless you are tent camping or in a very small rig. The pad surface is very poorly done and won't take any weight beyond stabilizers without some large boards or other devices to really spread the weight. I've boondocked for free with better campsites. - JimInTexas

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

The previous reviews describe the park well. This is primarily a horse camp that attracts large groups for events, weddings, etc. Except for a few construction workers, we had the place to ourselves. We had a full hook up site, but the sewer pipe was about 16 inches above the ground. The site is not level and a mixture of gravel, mud and weeds. Other than that, we loved it. You can see for over 30 miles in several directions without a lot of light pollution at night. We drove a short distance to the top of the hill and watched an epic sunset. Easy access to the NP. They have some electric only sites up on the hill, I would do one of those next time. - Fyrhawk

The CG is 6 miles EAST of Medora off exit 18. This is NOT the Buffalo Gap STATE Park. When you exit....GO STRAIGHT and do NOT turn LEFT. Camped in a 41ft MH. All the Big Rig sites are level. All have 50 Amp service. Power is FINE....no low or high voltage. Other than the 1 1/2 mile of gravel road (drive it at 15 MPH), that is the only disadvantage. No WiFi at the sites, only in the office/bar. CG is well maintained and grass is cut. You are OUT in the "boonies". But there is more DUST (been there) at the Medora CG due to the traffic. Would stay here again. - adventuroo

There's good and not so good about this place. First the "not so good." Also I should qualify this by saying that the big rigs were in a different spot of the property so some of this likely does not apply. The sites where we were were not very level at all. The hookups at some sites would have been tricky. The Bath house wasn't all that great. There is no shade anywhere, but it is smack dab in the middle of the North Dakota Badlands. The good: At $30/night it's way better than the other Medora venues I explored. It is a working ranch among other things. There is a good restaurant, as well as a saloon, on the grounds. The badlands which surround the place are amazingly peaceful. My wife and I would sit by the fire at night and listen to the coyotes howl. Despite the very average (or slightly worse) facilities, should I go to Medora again, I would choose to stay here, even if there were other availability at some of the pricier places with cleaner bathrooms. - mightywag

Perfect location to Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit / the Badlands. Full hook-ups, excellent wi-fi capable of streaming Hulu, good AT&T cell signal but no T-Mobile. Quiet park, mostly sightseeing adults / retirees when we were here (late August). Our site was mostly level, long enough for our Rv with the tow parked sideways behind it. We were able to fill our onboard propane here. I thought this park was an excellent value; would definitely stay here again. - MangoandJune

Showers were private. Bathrooms were mostly clean. Spaces were tight, not much room to yourself. Price is high, but free WiFi which worked better in our first site than second. Beautiful views. Access to pools. - Mari-

We stayed two nights in Medora to see the musical. Reservation process was good, check in was smooth. Sites are a bit tighter than we prefer, but we had good neighbors so it was no issue. We would stay here again. I rate it as a 9 rather than a 10 just because the sites are a bit tighter than we prefer. *If traveling with dogs, the dog area isn't the best as there is prickly pear cactus in it. Stay at the edge and you won't have an issue. However, the park just down the road on the edge of town allows off leash which gave us a chance to really give the dogs a good run. Just PLEASE, pick up after your "kids". - wyomingconnie

When registering the employee wouldn't stop eating which I felt was rude and unprofessional. She asked how I found out about them and when I replied 'RV Park Reviews' she said "people only use that to complain" and the site was worthless! When initially making the reservation 6 weeks prior I specified I needed a level site for 43' Class A. I was put in the back at the base of a hill in the back which was basically a gravel lot. Tried to level but site was so bad both front & the right rear wheels were off the ground. Made 2 trips to office to try to get moved and was told no, others had no problem so I needed to learn how to level my coach. At the time the park appeared only half full. Another employee met me at the site and after looking at it agreed to move me from full hook-ups to W&E only, the only thing available. Office initially refused to refund the difference saying the price was the same, even though their web site indicates otherwise, and they don't give refunds. The employee who helped me move later brought the refund to me. On the campground 'rules' page a lot of words unnecessarily capitalized, which should have been a clue. Some issues with low hanging tree branches. We will never stay here again nor recommend to anyone. Overall not a bad park but prior reviews also indicate problems with the owners. - GrandpaDan

Reviews by others and in some travel blogs lowered my expectations. That said, the park was fine. I was thankful to find a park open after Labor Day. I had an electric only site with a picnic table. I was thankful for the attendant who led me to my site and assisted me with backing in. He aligned my coach so I could deploy a slide. Free WiFi. Verizon signal strong. The campground is right in town and walking distance to dining. Unfortunately, I missed the local Medora Musical season by one day. - SunStar203

An old campground, but close to Medora, walkable to town. $35 for W/E/cable, no sewer. A plus is the tall trees for shade in most of the campground. CG very busy in August. Owners do not appear to put much money back in the campground, as office and other facilities appear shop-worn. Best thing about this campground is that it is a close walk to downtown. - Sadiesmom

This is dry camping at its best. We didn't reserve online, so only paid $19 per night ($12 for camping and $7 for day pass). From the previous reviews, I didn't think this campground would have a lot of traffic, but it did while we were there (nights of September 10-14). The night of the 14th, both the Whitetail Flats and Cedar campgrounds were full. Campers were parking in the horse corral area. There is a .4 mile dirt road to reach the entrance to the campground. The road had some ruts/potholes, but was manageable. There is a self pay station at the entrance to the park. The board with the list of available campsites was not updated regularly during our 5 day stay. It's probably best to check online to see what's available. However, if sites are reserved for a particular date, the park ranger puts a note on the post with the dates. Interior roads of the park are dirt/gravel and sites are either dirt/gravel or hard packed dirt/grass. Sites are flat and fairly level. There's easy access for big rigs. We stayed in the Whitetail Flats campground. Sites in the Whitetail Flats campground area are spacious. I believe site 1 is the camp host site. Sites 2-6 are clearly pull-throughs on dirt/gravel, but sites 7, 8 and 9 could be either pull-through or back-in; they're on hard packed dirt/grass. Site 10 is a pull-through on hard packed dirt/grass, although it could be a back-in for a very short RV. The campground is very quiet and peaceful, but it can be a bit dusty. Cedar campground has a 40' wide, 10' height limit, but we saw 5th wheels that were higher than 10' in that campground. Cedar campground has many trees; sites are relatively spacious there too. Little Muddy Breaks sites have horse corrals at each site. There is a vault toilet in each campground. The dump station/water fill is conveniently located and has easy access. All in all a beautiful place. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

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

We stayed here for a week, on the first day right after we got our site up and running a very large Bison moved thru out campsite and was no more than 5 ft from our motorhome. Wildlife every where in the park. As stated the road is under construction when you enter the park, it was dusty but we had no problems coming or going and I think the longest we had to wait was less than 5 min. Not good for AT&T service in the park. - Psi500

We did not stay at the campground, but stayed at Medora Campground just outside the National Park entrance. We took the toad through the park and I wanted to put out a warning that the entry roads is being reconstructed and it's one-way traffic most of the way to the campground. You need to wait for a pilot car to follow through the construction zone and the road has no pavement. I would expect that after a heavy rain, the road may well be closed. It looks like this may continue into the 2019 season. Just a heads up. - jplante4

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

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

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
