Price reflects seven day/night stay including paying $2.00 a day for cable TV. Wifi is "free" and worked great. Very busy campground. Lots of RVers coming in and out. All pull thrus and back in sites are straight instead of angled. We were in a straight back in, but the office personnel did a great job in putting us in one that was easy. Some sites are very close together. We were seven feet from our neighbor with the slides out. However there are sites with more room. Some sites have shade some don't. Some tree branches need to be cut back. Asphalt interior roads and gravel/grass sites. Easy in and out with a HDT & 35 foot long trailer. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This has the look of an aging park. It needs some TLC. Sites are level, some close together. The cable is well worth the extra $2.00 a night. Wi-Fi worked very well. Verizon/Sprint service adequate. The area to walk the pup is limited. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Within walking distance to downtown Medora. This time of year, only a few of the shops/restaurants were open. The Cowboy Musical doesn't start until June. We drove up to the amphitheater, it looks like it would be fun to see. Very close to the south entrance of Roosevelt Park.

Easy to find from I-94; very close to Theodore Roosevelt Nat. Park entrance. Level, gravel sites with grass and some trees. Escort to site. Older park; friendly, helpful Owners. $34 reflects full hookups & cable, Good Sam discount. WiFi worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is gravel and grass sites some are very close together some have more room. Most seem to be back-ins. The office is very friendly and have an escort to the site, The escort is very good at helping you back in to a site. Forget about your mirrors and listen to him, it goes perfect. We enjoyed our stay here visiting the bad lands. We would return to visit again. well worth the time to see the area. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are very tightly situated, very buggy, flies, etc. Person helping park was very proficient, inside people okay. Easy to get to but once at drive's entrance not much room to await service. Restroom were very bug laden also, and seemed to need some care. Was not told there was a pool next door by front desk. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are a 39' 5th wheel. Since we were staying for just one night, we elected an electric/water hook up only. It had rained before we got here. Site was very muddy, and very tight to maneuver our rig into site. Took several tries by my semi-truck driver husband, and finally campground staff took over. We would have gotten in the same way he did, but were trying to get farther into the site so we had space in between us and next door neighbors. Cable TV is extra, which we opted not to use as we have satellite. Area is beautiful, but would not consider staying here for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, will not have time to explore the city of Medora, as it looked pretty interesting as we drove through. Will probably bypass this place next time, but not much in North Dakota to choose from! We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Kind of tight for 40' rig. OK park otherwise. Easy walk to town. Food is expensive in town. Rate is Good Sam discount. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Price of $31.50 reflects daily rate with Good Sam discount. Cable was an additional cost per day, which we didn't purchase. This is a large park, with easy access for big rigs (at least our 40' motor home). We arrived at a very busy time with new folks checking in. The person who was checking in new folks remained focused, yet friendly. There was an escort to the site. Sites were adequately spaced with a picnic table and grass between sites. Some of the sites are gravel and some are grass, and the park does get muddy when it rains. Park wifi was good, and our own Verizon service worked well. Laundry room had four washers and four dryers. There was a children's play area. Showers looked a bit worn, but they were clean. Medora is a neat town. The Little Missouri Scenic River runs along one side of the town, but the river has a rather unpleasant odor, which makes the entire town smell less than pleasant. Do make time to drive through the Teddy Roosevelt National Park if you're in the area, as it's a beautiful drive. We saw prairie dogs, bison, deer and wild horses while driving through. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

The rate shown is the daily portion of the weekly rate of $195. We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Medora. Our site (#46) was level, and had a clear view of the sky for the satellite. It is easy to walk into town from the campground, and the entrance to the South Unit of Teddy Roosevelt NP is less than a mile away. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Good Sam plus $2 per night cable. Sites are mostly level and gravel. A cloud burst dumped a bunch of rain but it drained away nicely. Camp guide escorts you to the site and directs you into place. Sites are large enough and ample parking for the toad or tow vehicle. A mile or so from the south unit visitor center of Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Badlands (huge!). Lots of one-nighters coming and going. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our visit. Medora is fun and western with nightly musicals. Fuel stop in town. We would return when through the area.

Easy access from I-94 but no highway noise also near railroad but no horn. Friendly, helpful owners. Our site no 45 plenty of space but majority sites in the middle crammed. Office area and campsites need refurbishment; although functional, our picnic table was old and disintegrating. Price reflects $2 per /night for cable with good selection of channels. Only quarter mile from Theodore Roosevelt South Unit and walking distance to neat town of Medora. There was a problem with wifi on our first night but was working well after that. Would recommend but, especially at the weekends, it is very crowded., We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our rate was with a Good Sam discount. We loved the staff at this campground. We were guided to our site and they helped to assist us in backing into our location. We had a full hook up site that was very level. Easy walk into the quaint town. Sites are a bit close but the road through the campground was wide. We would stay again.

At first glance this older, in-town RV park seems a little rough, but is actually a fine park. Restrooms are modern and clean, with good hot water. They charge an extra $1 per day for cable, but it is a full line up including HBO and well worth the buck. The park is convenient to the town's attractions, including the Roosevelt National Park. Sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. No campfires permitted due to local regs. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice campground to stay at when visiting Medora. We travel slowly so we stayed for a week but most campers stayed for 2-3 days. Wifi is very important for me and theirs worked well. Medora is a nice town to get around in if you just want to ride bikes. The only time we used our car all week was to go to The Musical, which is on top of a hill that unless you are an avid biker you would not want to tackle on a bike. If you are visiting here make sure you have everything you need because there is not grocery store in town. The closest groceries are 40 miles away in Dickinson. We ran out of a couple things and the local convenient store had a couple tomatoes and apples they could sell us. Don’t miss going to Roosevelt National Park it is a wonderful park. We would stay here again. Rate reflects a weekly rate. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.
