This campground is quite large and was very full. My husband checked us in and said they weren't very friendly, seeming to be too busy to want to help. The spaces are close together. We found the town to be quite charming. We would stay here again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is conveniently located to the many attractions in beautiful Medora. The amenities were as promised, the cable was $2 and worked well, and the WIFI was free and also worked well. The campground is wooded tho not heavily so. No restrictive branches.It is nestled below a beautiful bluff. Our back in site was a little tricky for our 40' 5th wheel but we were one of the last in for the night and got one of the last sites. Sites were level and grass/gravel and spacious with picnic table and grill. Recent rains left a lot of mud but rain isn't their fault. They might think of fresh gravel in spots, but as they are very busy and due to close for the season soon, maybe it is on the "to do" list. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay. We would stay there again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Interior roads were dirt/gravel. Sites had level gravel pads with good spacing and utilities placed at the side (S) and back (E/W). Our site had good shade and a grassy area with older picnic table & small grill. Staff guided us into the site. No noise to speak of. They have a camp store with some supplies and basic grocery needs. WiFi coverage and throughput was excellent as was Verizon Cell signal. The CG is very close to Theodore Roosevelt NP in the ND Badlands. There is NO real grocery store in town and the closest is about 30 minutes away in Dickenson or Beach so stop on your way in. As well, only one gas station in town. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't miss an evening at the Medora Musical. It's a lot of fun, family friendly entertainment and you can opt for the cookout before hand... the Cowboy Cookout or the Pitchfork Steak Fondue. The food is good.

Stayed here for a week in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a back-in site that was dirt, grass and stone. Had to pay extra for cable tv ($14.00/week). Wifi was good. Nice that they escorted us to the site and helped us back in. With rainy weather, the sites had a tendency to get muddy. Very convenient RV Park to Medora where you could easily walk into town. Roads inside park are somewhat narrow and unpaved. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Medora is a great, little town with a lot going on. Teddy Roosevelt National Park is very close and well worth a visit. The town is clean, the restaurants are good and the people are friendly. Great Teddy Roosevelt impersonator gives a great show and the Medora Musical was something to see. Harold Shafer Museum was excellent and inspirational.

There are few alternatives in this area with the state and National Park campsites with no utilities. Spaces are close and on fairly level gravel. Interior roads are also gravel and dirt so heavy rains cause potholes. If full maneuverability would be difficult in some back in spaces. Laundry room was clean and $2/load and $1/dryer load. Cable was an extra $2/night. Free WiFi worked well. Verizon data and cell worked well. No area to walk dogs in park however there is a wide sidewalk along a grassy area on the main road. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for two nights in order to Golf at Bully Pulpit golf Course on our way to Billings MT. Previous reviews complained about the crowdedness. Yes, the park is tight, but it isn't as bad as some others we've stayed at. The water pressure was good. We felt is was a good value. Other campgrounds were either closed for the season a bit "out of town" for our taste. We would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Medora tourism is closed after Sept 10. The musical was over. The Pitchfork Fondue was closed. The McAllister House was closed. We basically played the Bully Pulpit Golf Course and ate at Boots Bar and Grill. The Golf Course was beautiful (and tough to play) and Boots was great. They have a Rueben Pizza that was very good.

We echo the reviews below from 2016. Can only beat the bush so hard... Teddy Roosevelt Nat. park and the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame is the big draw here, and the park is OK for a 2-3 day stay. Nothing spectacular, just a general gravel road park needing some updating. Site was average and we did pay the $2.00 extra fee for cable which was nothing short of terrible, but better than zero stations available over the air! Convenient to town is the key phrase here. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The town is charming, is an easy 1/2 mile walk, and diesel is available at the 1 station in town.

The North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame is here, and well worth a visit. It is professionally done, and is exquisite is every detail! Theodore Roosevelt National Park is interesting and well done also. Take the 35 mile loop drive around the park. Many buffalo to be seen. Teddy Roosevelt lived here before he was President, had a custom tailored buckskin outfit from New York, and his bucknife was made at Tiffany's. He also sported a silver plated 6 shooter! Quite a "Dude"

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.

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.

Seems like the owners are milking this for all they can,with not much effort going into the infrastructure. The sites are tight and each could use a load of gravel, the streets are dirt, and the check-in staff griping about "the unhappy campers". There is a house on the property that looks like a picker's heaven including an old bathtub in the yard. This is about the only place to stay if you're visiting TRNP. 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.
