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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Roosevelt National Park was quite interesting. Also the Medora Musical and the Theodore Roosevelt presentation were well worth the time. Lots of opportunities for music and activities. This town has done a good job of maximizing their quest for your tourist dollar in a very acceptable way. Quite a surprise for North Dakota.. the "Carmel" of North Dakota

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

The Maah Daah Hey trail is very nice if you like a nice trail through the hills southwest of the town. Beautiful views and no one else around. We also like the trails off of the park road. Nice walk into town and there are 3 ice cream shops: whoo-eee. The Chateau de Mores is a cool slice of history and the museum and house are excellent. Be sure to catch the guide tour of the Roosevelt cabin.

This campground is situated within a mile of the entrance to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We stopped for an overnight to get a site with sewer and water so we could shower and to take advantage of the campground's laundry facilities. For that purpose, this campground worked fine. Sites are gravel and level, have a picnic table and a stand-alone grill. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

You stay here because it's close to the park. Period. Sites are level but you are really packed in. Some have trees for shade, others are in full sun and pretty unbearable in the dog days of summer. Dust gets kicked up easily from the dirt roads; not pleasant. Bathrooms pretty old and bad, and their version of "clean" isn't really that clean; had to use them, though, so happy they were at least there. Their WiFi was inadequate, both in strength and in bandwidth, for the number of summer guests that stay here, but our Verizon MiFi signal was strong so we used our own. Zero over-air channels available and no cable. Each site has an old-style grill (I wouldn't use) and an old picnic table, but there's not really the space to enjoy either as they are right next to your neighbor's sewer. $40/night "because they can." The office people are really nice, however. But one 4-night stay is enough for us. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

As people have said, the nightly musical is good for one night of entertainment - it's right across the road. And you can walk into town along the sidewalk on the main road.

Levelish gravel lot. Wifi a joke. NO TV of any kind. Verizon cellular data was fine. Not a lot rv camp choices, so this one is good enough, we guess. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The scenic drive through Teddy Roosevelt is 1.5 hours *without stops*. Budget your time accordingly! I'd recommend a half day. There is a nice pool run by the city at the entrance to the campground where you can swim for $4/person. Great for the kids on a summer afternoon.

Other reviews pretty much sum up this place. Dusty and haphazard sites way too close together. Its run by the Medora foundation and they do a great job with lots of entertainment offerings in town but they should make this park nicer for the price they charge. We had rooftop satellite that worked, their WiFi wasn't too bad and location was great. The RV sites need to be about 40% farther apart and more defined with some landscaping, even local scrub would work. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Labor Day weekend, so the place was jammed. We also had a severe T.Storm, so experienced the worst conditions. The sites are very tight, gravel and grass. Some of the roads became rather flooded. Some units were oversized for the site, so vehicles were partially blocking roads. The rear bath building was closed, which is not good for a busy weekend. The pool was already closed for the season, also not good for the last big weekend of the year. All in all, it seemed rather pricey for the amenities. Having written all that, the location is really great. It is walking distance (on a paved path) to town and to part of the Maah Daah Hey Trail. The second left turn is entrance to the T. Roosevelt Nat. Park. Would stay here again, but still whine about the price. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location in a lovely town. The campground is just adequate and extremely dusty with its dirt/gravel roads. We had a short full hookups site and we're lucky that no one was on either side. Our patio side neighbors sewer would have been right at our door - at other sites the sewer hookup is under their neighbor's picnic table. The free wifi is only good for email. Our Verizon MiFi worked great. Our Direct TV would not work because of trees. Other sites were treeless - be sure to ask for a satellite friendly site if you have a satellite. No over air TV. The Medora Musical is a surprisingly good, quality show and well worth going to. The Pitchfork Fondue was so-so - beautiful location but cafeteria type food. We stayed here 3 nights while visiting TRNP. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

After 6 weeks of travel and multiple campgrounds we would stay here again. The spaces are average for an RV park, nice long pull through. The pads were gravel and fairly level. The sites had little grass but it is the high dry prairie so this is not unusual. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park was clean and maintained. Laundry was reasonable and clean. Right next to the national park. Within walking distance to downtown. There is a shuttle available for the Medora show. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
