This is a beautiful park and it was nearly empty while we were there. It's primarily a horse camp, but we didn't have any horses, nor did the other 2 people who were camped here. Our site overlooked the canyon, which was beautiful. The hiking trails are well marked, and you get a map when you check in. There's electricity, but no water or sewer. Showers are available, but you have to pay 50 cents for 4 minutes, $1 for 8 minutes. There is potable water onsite, so we just filled our 7 gallon jugs and we were fine. If you just want to chill, this is a great place. We traveled all over, but most people probably wouldn't. I would think this is mostly a destination campground, not a place to do day trips out of. It's fairly convenient for the north section of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Motorhome.

I wish we'd had more time to stay here. The park is much nicer than I'd expected. The campsites sit along the edge of the plateau above the valley of the Lower Missouri River and provide nice views of the badlands and forested slopes leading down toward the river. Although we don't have horses, the campground is obviously a horseman's paradise. The park provides free horse stalls with the camping fee, and numerous trails lead down toward the river and along the rim of the canyon. Although there are no water or sewer hookups, there's a conveniently located dump station with potable water and additional spigots located throughout the park. With 50 amp service, we could have run both air conditioners, but the weather was cool enough that we had to run the furnace instead. The park is two miles from the highway along a smooth gravel road (providing additional views of the canyon), and the gravel roads within the campground are also well maintained. The camp sites are unworn grass, which was in good condition during our stay in spite of the current drought conditions. Some sites would have been too sloped to level our motorhome, but it's picky about leveling and there were quite a few suitable sites from which we could choose. The only downside for us was that it has rained most of the afternoon and we have to leave early tomorrow because our next stop is a long drive from here. Horse and hiking trails lead to locations throughout the park, some along the canyon rim and many others leading down into the canyon. The park's web site had PDF maps of the campground and the park trails. Because sections of trail are along steep Badland slopes composed of clays, they can be muddy and slippery when wet as I learned this morning. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the most beautiful state parks I have stayed in. Showers were great. Pit toilets but very clean. Park is geared toward horse owners. We enjoyed seeing the horses. Scenery was spectacular. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for 2 nights due to high winds. Only people at park. Lots of paddocks for horses if you bring them with trails right off property. We did not have horses. Self pay at entry. Deep canyon in back of property with beautiful views. Electric only but with dump station and water at entrance if needed. Pit toilet gross. Clean paid showers that we did not use. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a couple days in this park, and enjoyed the trails in this amazing, quiet place. Views are spectacular, and trails are challenging. We didn't have horses, but did enjoy the trails.

The park is perfect if you have horses, or mules, to enjoy the challenging trails. There currently are not any horse rentals, it seems.

The shower is very modern, and new, and the toilets are primitive.

We will be back. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice to drive thru the valley and see the trees and badlands.

Oil pumping rigs are nearby, but not a problem

The previous reviewer said something about showers being built. It appears they are done. They were very clean. I had trouble asertaining whether the sites were "pull in" or "back in." The way the electric sites are arranged is: two RV's share one pole. Except one of you is 30 amp and one of you is 50 amp. If you need 50 amp, hope your neighbor sharing the pole is 30 amp. Also, the RV to the right of you, that shares the next pole down, will be kind of "cozy close" to you. There is still room to put slides out, but the sites are a bit cozy. I was here on a Monday, and only one other RV and the camp host were here. This park is built for the horse crowd. There are horse corrals and electric hookups close to them. You don't get a water faucet at this park. You fill up at the entrance (or one of the faucets around the park) and go in your site. For sewer all you get is the dump station at the park entrance. Verizon cell phone and Home Phone Connect (wireless landline) worked here. Verizon MiFi JetPack worked here. I have the JACK antenna and all I got was FOX over the air. I also had to drive 2 miles down the wash board road. Just take it slow. Good place to overnight if you aren't into horses. We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Motorhome.

None of the web sites/books we use showed this park as having camping, nor were there blue RV signs along the highway. However, a ND Dept. of Tourism brochure said this park had RV camping, so we took a chance because we needed to escape the high winds (50mph sustained!). We traveled down a washboard-y dirt road, wondering what we were getting into, then we saw it--gorgeous badlands and a very tidy horse camping park. Lots of corrals and horse trails. The camp host could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Fee is $12 to camp plus $5 ND day use/vehicle fee. Not bad. And the views are just spectacular. There is a picnic pavilion, a fresh water pump (not threaded), a dump station, and lots and lots of trails. They are currently building what looks to be a very nice showerhouse/bathroom. Until that is completed, come self-contained as it's primitive. And bring leveling blocks--just grass lawn to park on. With all those caveats, though, we really enjoyed this little park. Very quiet and highly unusual. We would stop here again and next time rent a horse to go on more of those trails! (Please note: Number of campsites is just a guess. None of the ND literature or web sites says how many sites there are.) We camped at Little Missouri State Park in a Motorhome.
