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.

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.

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.

Stopped for one night on the way through. Seemed like a little decent place next to the river and the badlands. Nice and easy to find about just off the interstate. The washrooms and showers were old but were pretty clean. Medora is a pretty small place but it's very touristy and was kind of neat to check out. Wifi worked well. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

Large city operated RV park with gravel roads and sites with grass areas and table. One area has lots of trees and wide pull thru sites and a separate area with back in sites and very few trees. Both areas have water, sewer, 30 and 50 amp service. Separate tent areas. Free un-secured Wi-Fi. Kids playground in the campground, but no game room, but a city park with heated swimming pool and large kids play area only 200 yards away. Very good Verizon cell and 4G signal. Satellite TV signal only in the back in sites with only a few small trees. No cable TV available. No scheduled activities or breakfasts, etc. Staff friendly and helpful and park accepts pets. At the edge of the wonderful small town of Medora. Visit the many museums and shops in town and go to the Medora Musical. Theodore Roosevelt Nat’l are a must see. Rated 7 for location, 6 for the park itself. Stayed 4 days to explore the town and area and would stay there again. City park and does not accept GS, Passport, RPI, ROD or C 2 C. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Shore Services: 50/30amp. Sewer good. Water @ 60psi Sustains 45psi. WiFi is available, but I didn't use it. AT&T Cell Phone good with 3 bars. 3G Sprint Air Card is poor. Verizon Air Card good. Cable not available. Site is gravel, reasonably level both ways. Site lengths vary, ours was not long enough to park my truck on the site, Site closeness vary also; some have plenty of room, but mine was so close that the picnic table could barely sit on it. Roads are good entering the park and through the park. Restrooms are old and need updating. The showers are separate and that is nice, but they also are old. Direct TV satellite is easy to access. Discounts are not available. Payment can be with credit card. The $35 price for this campground, I think is a bit high. This is a large campground and has plenty of room, overall. I would stay here again. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice city owned park. Lots of shade trees and nice, level pull through sites for big rigs. Great location for touring the Teddy Roosevelt National Park and seeing the Medora musical. Our Verizon aircard worked well, but their WiFi signal was weak where we were camped. It is the only game in town and we would stay here again. Rate shown is the daily rate for 50 amp full hook up. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the first time we have stayed in the Medora area in decades. We tent camped in TRNP back in the late 1970s. We had a FHU, pull-through site. We were able to get satellite reception but not that many sites in the park are satellite friendly. This is a city run park and handles everything from tents to big rigs. Most of the RV sites are pull-throughs but they vary from W&E with 20 A to FHU with 50 A. The roads and sites are gravel. The site length and width varies. There is a small laundry with cheap machines and the bathrooms are old but usable. We were happy with our site and the park overall. You pass the city park (playgrounds, ball fields and courts, large pool, etc.) on the way into the campground. The city park pool is available for $2/day. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very busy park in summer, & we arrived without a reservation & wanted 30 amp. Nevertheless, the staff found us a site. The park has expanded their 50 amp area, & it's nice, but you'll probably need a reservation. The private showers are terrific, & really clean. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We used this as an overnight stop and worked out well. They had a blow up slide and pool for the kids which is great, and you can walk along the river next to the campground. Views are very nice and located next to the tourist trap, I mean town. I felt like we were being setup by two "campers" for the music show/dinner which is also promoted by the campground. Something didn't seem right but they left us alone once they knew we were not going and then they wandered to the next trailer that just pulled in. The kids liked this place, lots of room to ride bikes and was an easy place to go explore from. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Due to travel distances we have stayed here 3 times in the last 2 years, and every time have experienced loud, late night parties. (Twice the noise was coming from town employee housing, in mobile homes attached to the park.) It appears to be a college party park with parties lasting as late as 4:00 am and significant drinking. No police or security presence that we could see, and no one answered calls at the "office." Scary for families! WiFi is available, but was not very good. Once again, consider this a college party place. Doesn't happen all the time, or every night, but it happened at least once during every one of our stays. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good, basic campground for use as a base for visiting Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Sites are a bit narrow, but we were able to run out our 40" slide. We were warned that our site was uneven, but it was dead level. Pool is a bit of a walk from most sites. Wi-Fi is decent. Note: Medora has NO grocery store, only a small convenience store. If you need anything other than the most basic items, make sure to stop somewhere 30-60 miles before you get to Medora. There is nothing around here! We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.
