Older campground, sites are very close, they have some pull-thru, some back to back sites, but most are back in. We pulled through the site behind us, into a 50 AMP electric/water. We are staying through the 4th of July. They have a fenced in play yard, and a fairly well stocked store. The roads are gravel as are the sites. Space between our site and the next is about 10 ft. We're toward the front of the park and close to the paved street, so have nice area to walk the dogs. A short distance from the park is a grassy area along the river. We are within an easy walk of downtown. Great WiFi-free, $2.00 a day for cable, we could not use Satallite due to trees around us. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It's 3 days until the 4th of July and a lot of empties. Will see what the weekend brings. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town itself is an easy 10 minute walk. Cute shops, lots of restaurants, a museum, theater, and several other activities. The town is at the entrance to Roosevelt National Park, with lots of hiking, and a 36 miles circle drive.

We enjoyed our visit to Medora, and Red Trail provided an adequate site for our 33' motorhome during our three night stay The site was a level, full hookup, 50 amp site. The sites are close to one another, but the park was quiet at night. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception; the park Wi-Fi was adequate. Red Trail allows guests to wash their RV and car. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Boots Bar and Grill is a good place to escape the heat with a cold beer and an appetizer.

Price includes a Good Sam discount and $2 for cable. This campground is close to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and we were here on a Friday night, so the campground was very busy. We saw several rigs come in and leave in about 5 minutes, as the park was full. We had made a reservation the day before, so if you are planning to stay on a weekend during the summer, you might call ahead for reservations. The staff was not rude, but were nowhere near friendly either. This could be because they were so busy. The park is not fancy by all means. The sites are grass and the roads are dirt. Our site was fairly level, but was very tight to get into. There was 50 amp service and water but no sewer. Also, there was very little shade on a 90 degree day. There is no real place to unhook your tow, the person who guided us to our site waited for me to unhook in the road by our site. There is cable and Wi-Fi . The cable works well with over 50 channels including HBO. The Wi-Fi is slow, just like every other park I have been in, so with a strong Verizon signal, I just used that. There is no real place to walk your dog, we just walked ours across the street. We overnighted here on our way east on I-94. We would overnight here again, but probably would go someplace else for an extended stay. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Staying here is like staying at a Badlands ranch, you are in the middle of them and campground is rustic. It is not a resort, but sites are good, level, and utilities are well placed. Sites are back in, so you do have to unhook your car to get into site. Owner/operators are accommodating. Owner escorts you to your site and directs you into site, do not think you can just back in using your mirrors, things are close and you cannot judge your distance. He is excellent at getting you into site perfectly. We were in site 47, along outer perimeter fence and had plenty of room, open for satellite, so did not pay extra for cable. Sites under trees were back to back and seemed tighter. Wi-fi was adequate, our Verizon was good. Campground is in pretty good shape considering harsh and long winters and numbers of campers in. Our rate of $29 is based on weekly rate of $195. Weekend was completely full, reservations are recommended. Be sure to specify what you need, ie 50 amps, FHUs, Big Rig, satellite, etc, to be properly accommodated. Located on edge of town, which is quaint with lots to see and do. Town ordnance against fires at campground, so no fire rings. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure you visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and drive its 36 mile loop for a good feel of Badlands and sightings of wildlife. Don't miss the Pitchfork Fondue (it's an experience) and the Medora Musical. Another not-to-be-missed, is Theodore Roosevelt at the Town Hall. The fellow plays TR around the country and even at the White House.

Older park with level gravel sites with grass between. Many are shaded by cottonwood trees. Sites are pretty close together. Well-equipped small store. Had a full hook-up site with cable ($2 extra). Everything worked well. Pleasant check-in, escort to site who also directed the back-in and puts you exactly in the site so the slides have room and utilities reach. Convenient location for Theodore Roosevelt NP and 15 minute walk to Medora town center. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Located in the small town of Medora, this campground is quiet with lots of trees. Utilities were fine, the site was level and cable is $2.00 per day additional. Close to everything Medora has to offer. There is not a grocery store in this small town, but the campground has the necessities. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We came here to go to Theodore Roosevelt NP, and that was great, but DO NOT MISS the Medora Musical and Pitchfork Steak Fondue dinner!!!!!

Great location to tour area but park needs TLC. Lots tight, not much grass or gravel, cars park in front sideways so can be tough to get out if others are not in tight.

Rudest check in woman in 3 years of traveling. Waited 10 minutes to check in while she worked on computer asked about things to do in area she pointed to a map on side wall and said it is all on there. One other campground in area not sure what it is like but would try there couldn't be worse than here

Would not return. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoyed Teddy Roosevelt performance in town and Medora musical. Don't miss see north loop of NP more spectacular scenery than south

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
