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.

Be aware that the gas station in town can accommodate cars, but could not handle our 31' motorhome. Plan on getting your gas/diesel somewhere else.

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.

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.

Close to everything. We were there in 100 degree weather and all utilities worked great, Stayed in #164 and Direct TV OK. Saw plenty of Bison at Teddy Roosevelt NP, The Medora Musical entrance across street. Swam dogs in River on campground. Will stay again. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Do the park loop at sunset. We saw so many animals- prairie dogs, bison, coyote, horses, deer, pronghorns. Not to mention the sunset from Buck Hill. My favorite time of day in this park

This is a very large campground in a very small town. The road and sites are gravel/dirt, and the sites are really small. The restrooms were old, but well kept. The wifi was good, there are no TV channels, and I thought the price was a little high for what you get. There isn't a pool, but there is a playground for kids. This park is close to Teddy Roosevelt National Park, and there are some good restaurants close by. We would probably not do an extended stay here again, but it's good for a night or two. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were interested in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Badlands. This park was almost at the entrance! It's owned by the local foundation. There are a few typical tourist sites, like a couple of small museums, horseback riding, entertainment venues, but the park is the main attraction...and WHAT an attraction.

This RV park provides what you need to enjoy the area.

It wasn't packed at this time of year. Things were just opening up.

We have a 42' Winnebago Tour and we've been in tighter spots. It was dry so only a little dust...but this is the Badlands after all! We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Take the 2 hour drive through the park! We had buffalo wrestling on the road as we drove by! Wild horses...and scenery as beautiful as the Grand Canyon!

We stayed here four nights over the Labor Day weekend. The campground was jam-packed and the sites were extremely close. Out pull-through site, and many others, was quite short, with barely room to park the truck across the front of our rig. We were fortunate, however, to have a scenic view of the badlands, as the campground is in a picturesque setting. The campground hostess could not have been friendlier or more helpful. This campground is only a block from the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and within walking distance of the little town of Medora. There is a small convenience store in town that has only basic essentials (not a real food store) with gas pumps attached for fuel. We suggest making sure to bring the food you will need and fuel-up on your way to or from Medora at Exit 42 on I-94, 15 miles East of Medora. The campground has red clay sites which we understand are normally quite dusty but, apparently, unusual rains created oozy red mud that was difficult not to track into our camper during our stay. Although it is a basic no-frills campground with some deficits, of the two in Medora this is the better choice and if you want to see the North Dakota Badlands and Theodore Roosevelt National Park(which are well worth the visit) it is a convenient place to stay while doing so. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Okay place to stay. Sites could use a little TLC and sprucing up. A little muddy if it rains. Wi-Fi OK but not the fastest and is not always available. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground was a good place to stay for a visit to the National Park. Check-in was a little slow. We had reserved a 30 amp long site but were assigned a short site. After we checked the site we asked to be moved and they were very nice about moving us to a longer site. Wi-Fi worked, not super fast but good. I changed the listing to 'no pool'. The pool is part of the city park next door and was an extra fee but it was closed for long term structural repairs. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was fine for a short visit to see the National Park. Gravel roads and sites and a bit dusty. Long pull through sites, however not all were level. They had shaded sites and open sites for satellite. Full hook ups. Would stay here again if in the area. It is a long way from the North Unit of the park, but convenient to the South Unit. Very limited groceries in town. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is on the west side of town. The showers were moderately clean. But the wi-fi does NOT work. We felt it was over-priced at $35/nightly. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.
