We stayed here three nights. OK park next to Medora ND. So if you are going to visit Teddy Roosevelt Park this is one of the places you would stay. The park is fine, but a bit funky. Water pressure and flow is low on both. This is walking - biking distance to Medora. Strong Verizon signal. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tiny, close-together sites. Weeds instead of grass and weeds needed cutting. Ugly place. Close to Medora and national park is only plus. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is located less than a mile from the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It was very convenient to I-94. Our site had full hook ups. It is an older park. The restrooms and showers were dated, but were clean. The staff was very friendly. Our biggest complaint was the driveways and site pads. They are mainly sand with quite a few low spots. We had a large mud puddle right where we had to park our truck. It was so deep that the truck had to be pulled up for the passenger to get in. With a little time and money spent on adding gravel to the sandy roads and pads, this would be a much nicer park. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Not your top of the world campground but it's close to Medora, walking distance to downtown, the outdoor Musical is only a few miles, and there is enough space for 39' fifth wheel. Folk are friendly and helpful. No full hookup at our site, electric and water only. We did see a few with full hook ups, don't know if they are full timers here or not. The only thing is the grassy area at campsites aren't mowed but they stay full all the time. Picnic tables are nice, aluminum. You are taken to your site which is a plus in my book. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We rated this campground with one star out of 10 and as "Terrible" in every category. We could go on and on about how we felt about Red Trail Campground but it will suffice to just say that we would not stay here again and we would not recommend it to others.

Our recommendation to other campers is, before handing over any money either cash or by credit card, ask to see the site where this campground plans to park you. You might just decide to move on to another campground. We wish that we had done this before paying. There are a number of options available in or near Medora and in our opinion, all are far superior to this park. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The small town of Medora is a wonderful town with a number of restaurants and shops. Medora and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park is well worth the time and effort to visit. We moved from Red Trail to Cottonwood (NPS Campground) and easily found an available campsite and had a delightful 3 day stay. While in the area we visited Buffalo Gap Campground and found that although they offer no services, it would have been another delightful option if Cottonwood had been full.

The park is convenient to Teddy Roosevelt NP. It had good 50 amp, water pressure, no sewer, wifi was non existent. The lots were quite close. The interior roads became mud holes after the heavy rain. AT&T was good. The staff was friendly but wow, they need to clean out that office. The park itself could use some TLC with signage and mowing. The park is HEAVILY used because of the NP. We stayed her for 3 days and probably not return. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Very convenient campground! Right next to TRNP and to town. Almost all back in sights (we liked ours the best as it was on the end with nice shade trees and out of the traffic). Staff was nice, and "parked" you - really needed it as some sites were tricky, but they knew what they were doing! Lots of people coming and going all the time, busy place because of the National Park. Could have used 5 days instead of just the 4. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Lots! Visiting TRNP is the main attraction - save time to see both ends (each takes a day). Take in the Medora Musical and Dinner Buffet, it's really worth it! The shops in town are the basic tourist "stuff", nothing unique, but the food is good.

Nice park in town close to TRNP and the Medora Musical. The musical is well worth going to. The park is a little aging but very acceptable. Would stay there again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Bathrooms dirty. Sites close together. Asked to change sites for second day (a Sunday). Response was: "No, we have a lot more people coming in." The next morning, the same sites (and there were quite a few), were still empty. Convenient to Medora, a big advantage. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

We only stayed a few days in a pull thru site. The sites were pretty close together. There were some permanent residents in the park and actually some stick homes in and around the park also. We had people walking through our site every day! The WI-FI was basically nonexistent where we were located, even though we were informed that there was Wi-Fi all over the park. We could never get on the internet at all. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Clean campground with some shade but not all sites. Was escorted to the site and received help to back in. Larger sites did not have shade trees. Good store, office, with very helpful people working there. Park was busy with the summer traffic for the Medora musical. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This small town of Medora has the Medora Musical, the Badlands National Park, and the famous Bully Pulpit Golf Course. This area was one of the homes of the late President Teddy Roosevelt. Good shops for local trinkets, some good eating places and the excellent Cowboy Cafe. Busy and small but excellent food and plenty of it.

Cable is $2 extra. Sites were almost level. Nice long pull-through. Easy access to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Liked the trees but a little tight for big rigs. Pleasant hosts. Hookup posts could use some updating. Served us well for an overnight & a quick national park visit. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I spent 3 nights at this park while visiting Medora and Theodore Roosevelt NP. My site was a back-in. One of the staff was very helpful in assisting me with getting into the site. Since I was going to be using my tow car, disconnecting was not a problem. My site was level enough and gave me a clear sky for my satellite. WiFi was adequate. The park is beginning to show its age; however, it was satisfactory enough for my stay. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Check-in staff was friendly and provided escort to site. The park has a variety of back-in and pull-through sites and should be able to handle most any size rig. The pull-throughs are long enough that it looks like they could place RVs in them back-to-back. Sites are gravel/dirt with grass between. They really need more gravel; when there has been lots of rain, as it was when we were there, there are a lot of muddy spots and standing water. Some sites are in among large trees, other are in the open. There is a picnic table and small grill at each site. Wi Fi worked well sometimes, could not get on at other times. Cable TV has about 60 channels ($2 per night charge). The park is conveniently located near the many tourist attractions in Medora. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an older park which is showing its age but it works just fine for staying in Medora for a few days to visit the national park. It is very quiet. Wifi has worked well for 3 days. Cable TV is a must if you want to watch anything at all because over-air TV doesn't work here. Staff is friendly and helpful. The gentleman who assists people with parking is extremely good at it and we had no problem getting into a 90-degree slot (which we hate doing). Would definitely stay here again.
