For a forest service campground, they take lousy care of their trees. They are overgrown into the road and hang way too low to clear our motorhome or probably any fifth wheeler. We were able to back up the one way road into the end site and that worked. Otherwise we would not have stayed. The park is convenient and at $6 is not bad, considering there are zero services except water is available. The sites are generally small but some are large enough for our 40ft motorhome or a large RV. They are not at all level, however, and some have pretty bad slopes unless you are tent camping or in a very small rig. The pad surface is very poorly done and won't take any weight beyond stabilizers without some large boards or other devices to really spread the weight. I've boondocked for free with better campsites. - JimInTexas

This campground was a pleasant surprise. We were on our way home from Montana and didn't want to pay a lot to stay overnight. With our Senior Pass we paid half off or $3 for a spacious campsite in a very well-kept campground. There were probably 5 others in the campground, making for a quiet, restful stop. The bathrooms and showers were closed for the season, but it wasn't a big deal for us since we're self-contained. Would definitely stop again on our way through. - Marsha D

This is a boondocking campground that is convenient for visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit. With the senior pass National Park discount, the rate is $3/night instead of $6/night. We were a little concerned about finding a site that could accommodate our 43' motorhome and have decent Verizon service. We found that site 13, a double wide site, on the upper loop, accomplished both of these tasks for us. I think it could have been a challenge getting into and leveled in many of the sites - while they appear to be reasonably level side-to-side, they are very sloping front to back, hard for a long motorhome to level. There were some comments about no water here, but there is water in the bathhouses, and there are spigots around the campground (though they do not appear to have fittings for attaching a hose even for filling a tank). There is no dump station and no dumpster for trash. There is no reservation system, so you are limited to what is available when you get here - I think as long as you are not coming in Friday afternoon or Saturday that it is likely that you may find a site that meets your needs. - pattic777

This is a working ranch and not a frilly campground. It is located at the end of a 1 1/2 miles dirt road. The road was in good condition. I'd suggest to keep it around 10-15 mph. Office is in the restaurant/bar. The restaurant serves great steaks. I personally did not like the campsite layout, rows and rows of campers on dirt/gravel strips and some grass between the strips. Personal opinion.The facilities all worked. There was no fire ring or picnic table on any of the sites. We did not use the restrooms or showers. One camper said that they were clean but minimal. The office personnel were friendly and helpful. - BDP

The previous reviews describe the park well. This is primarily a horse camp that attracts large groups for events, weddings, etc. Except for a few construction workers, we had the place to ourselves. We had a full hook up site, but the sewer pipe was about 16 inches above the ground. The site is not level and a mixture of gravel, mud and weeds. Other than that, we loved it. You can see for over 30 miles in several directions without a lot of light pollution at night. We drove a short distance to the top of the hill and watched an epic sunset. Easy access to the NP. They have some electric only sites up on the hill, I would do one of those next time. - Fyrhawk

The CG is 6 miles EAST of Medora off exit 18. This is NOT the Buffalo Gap STATE Park. When you exit....GO STRAIGHT and do NOT turn LEFT. Camped in a 41ft MH. All the Big Rig sites are level. All have 50 Amp service. Power is FINE....no low or high voltage. Other than the 1 1/2 mile of gravel road (drive it at 15 MPH), that is the only disadvantage. No WiFi at the sites, only in the office/bar. CG is well maintained and grass is cut. You are OUT in the "boonies". But there is more DUST (been there) at the Medora CG due to the traffic. Would stay here again. - adventuroo

Good place to stay to visit the Theodore D Roosevelt Park, especially the steak house and musical. A bit tight in turns, and we had to ask for another space because trees too close. But not a bad place and the staff was courteous and responsive. We'd stay here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD

Nice enough for visiting Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Level pull thru 30/50 amp full hookup dirt sites. Pull thrus are short for big rigs, but can park toad sideways. Small store. Some satellite reception sites, but wooded. Foundation owned and operated so right in town. Would stay here again. - teepee51

An attractive place to stay while visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Medora is close and for a tourist town has enough services to provide for basic needs. Staff is friendly and helpful. Serviceable wifi. The park is a sprawling woodsy environment with attractive red sandstone streets when wet are a muddy mess. Sites are close and drive throughs are barely long enough for rig plus tow. Still, we enjoyed our stay here and would return when in the area. - Roger H.

This park is definitely NOT a 6. We were very pleased with our site, the facility, the hookups and the staff. We had very level back in site and staff parked us to insure we had proper spacing for the slides and to avoid the trees. The sites are close to your neighbor but we've stayed at worse. Compared to other options for big rigs in the area, this is clearly the best location (10 minute walk to town, less than a mile to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park entrance and about a mile from the Medora Musical facility). The office has a pretty well stocked store & supplies. I think if you remember you're in the middle of western North Dakota and set your expectations appropriately, you'll be pleased with this campground. The sites have a grill, but no fire ring. Campfires are not allowed due to local ordinance. - McGarrert50

It just opened a few days ago but it’s still off-season and we are the only RV here. It’s a little hard to rate since it’s empty and indoor facilities are not open. This section of the park has water on. The spaces do seem close together. Most are open with no trees or shrubs but some have a scattering of trees among them. Our site (D) is quite level and the others seem level too. It’s a two block walk to town (where very little is open too) and just across I-94 from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. No highway noise but frequent freight trains make you feel at home on the Great Plains. The $25 off-season rate for FHU pull-thru with limited amenities is fair. There’s a cable connection at the box, but I think the guy said ‘no cable’ so it’s probably not on yet. No OTA channels at all. WiFi is a nice 47 Mbps but of course no one else is using it. Each site has a picnic table and portable charcoal grill. I assume they do not allow campfires but I’m not sure of that. - MNroadie

When registering the employee wouldn't stop eating which I felt was rude and unprofessional. She asked how I found out about them and when I replied 'RV Park Reviews' she said "people only use that to complain" and the site was worthless! When initially making the reservation 6 weeks prior I specified I needed a level site for 43' Class A. I was put in the back at the base of a hill in the back which was basically a gravel lot. Tried to level but site was so bad both front & the right rear wheels were off the ground. Made 2 trips to office to try to get moved and was told no, others had no problem so I needed to learn how to level my coach. At the time the park appeared only half full. Another employee met me at the site and after looking at it agreed to move me from full hook-ups to W&E only, the only thing available. Office initially refused to refund the difference saying the price was the same, even though their web site indicates otherwise, and they don't give refunds. The employee who helped me move later brought the refund to me. On the campground 'rules' page a lot of words unnecessarily capitalized, which should have been a clue. Some issues with low hanging tree branches. We will never stay here again nor recommend to anyone. Overall not a bad park but prior reviews also indicate problems with the owners. - GrandpaDan

This is dry camping at its best. We didn't reserve online, so only paid $19 per night ($12 for camping and $7 for day pass). From the previous reviews, I didn't think this campground would have a lot of traffic, but it did while we were there (nights of September 10-14). The night of the 14th, both the Whitetail Flats and Cedar campgrounds were full. Campers were parking in the horse corral area. There is a .4 mile dirt road to reach the entrance to the campground. The road had some ruts/potholes, but was manageable. There is a self pay station at the entrance to the park. The board with the list of available campsites was not updated regularly during our 5 day stay. It's probably best to check online to see what's available. However, if sites are reserved for a particular date, the park ranger puts a note on the post with the dates. Interior roads of the park are dirt/gravel and sites are either dirt/gravel or hard packed dirt/grass. Sites are flat and fairly level. There's easy access for big rigs. We stayed in the Whitetail Flats campground. Sites in the Whitetail Flats campground area are spacious. I believe site 1 is the camp host site. Sites 2-6 are clearly pull-throughs on dirt/gravel, but sites 7, 8 and 9 could be either pull-through or back-in; they're on hard packed dirt/grass. Site 10 is a pull-through on hard packed dirt/grass, although it could be a back-in for a very short RV. The campground is very quiet and peaceful, but it can be a bit dusty. Cedar campground has a 40' wide, 10' height limit, but we saw 5th wheels that were higher than 10' in that campground. Cedar campground has many trees; sites are relatively spacious there too. Little Muddy Breaks sites have horse corrals at each site. There is a vault toilet in each campground. The dump station/water fill is conveniently located and has easy access. All in all a beautiful place. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

We stayed at Sully Creek State Park based on the "Excellent" reviews. We registered and paid for 2 nights, but only made it through one night before we relocated. The ambiance of the park is just okay. No real enduring factors.
Issue 1: There is a sign posted when entering the park about driving slow due to the dust. This was certainly not obeyed. Issue 2: The site across from us ran their generator all night (I know this isn't necessarily the park's fault, but the host should enforce the rules). Issue 3: its a fairly rough road to get down into the park. Issue 4: you're basically setup in an open field with no shade (there are some shaded sites, but bigger rigs don't fit). Just wasn't our cup of tea so we relocated to an RV park in town. - OpenRoadJedi

Gorgeous dry campground just off of I-94 near Medora, ND. There were no trees for shade or screening in the Whitetail Flats loop, but we travel with two large dogs so absolutely loved that the RV sites are really widely spaced, so we didn't have to worry about shortening tie outs.
Cedar loop sites are much smaller and very shaded, but I would describe them as nicely spaced compared to many other campgrounds. We saw some RVs in that loop, but mostly smaller trailers and pop-ups.
Little Muddy Breaks loop is all horse sites with corrals in each. Plenty of big horse trailer/RV combos in that area. The whole park is easy to navigate with a larger rig (lots of room to turn around, etc.). No water or power in the individual sites, there are pay showers and restrooms at the top of the Whitetail Flats loop. A dump station and potable water are located at the entrance to the campground.
We paid a total of $21 for one night. $12 for our site, $4 reservation fee (we reserved in advance via phone), and $5 day pass for the state park. - Canadian in Minnesota

Well designed campground with two loops. One loop is for under 25’ RVs and tents and are back in or walk in sites. The other loop is for larger RVs with primarily pull thru sites. The sites are fairly level and are sand based which get messy with rain. There are a flush toilet facility in the center of each loop with composting toilets in other areas. The campground sits next to the Little Missouri River 5 miles from the park entrance. There are no hook ups or dump station but portable water is available on the way in. Generator hours are from 8 AM to 8 PM. It is a beautiful setting in the North Dakota Badlands. Bring all supplies since there is very limited shopping. - linnemj

We stayed here for a week, on the first day right after we got our site up and running a very large Bison moved thru out campsite and was no more than 5 ft from our motorhome. Wildlife every where in the park. As stated the road is under construction when you enter the park, it was dusty but we had no problems coming or going and I think the longest we had to wait was less than 5 min. Not good for AT&T service in the park. - Psi500

We did not stay at the campground, but stayed at Medora Campground just outside the National Park entrance. We took the toad through the park and I wanted to put out a warning that the entry roads is being reconstructed and it's one-way traffic most of the way to the campground. You need to wait for a pilot car to follow through the construction zone and the road has no pavement. I would expect that after a heavy rain, the road may well be closed. It looks like this may continue into the 2019 season. Just a heads up. - jplante4

There are 20 sites here. All sites have 20/30/50 amp, water and electric.
That's all there is. No restrooms or showers. No Wi-Fi. No manager/owner on site. Water pressure was so low we had to use our on board pump to take showers. You put your check in a drop box when you arrive. Sites are overgrown but the weeds were mowed. Trees need trimming so as not to run on your RV. All sites slope toward the North. I would not recommend this park unless maybe they start taking Passport America. At $35 a night ($200 a week) this place is way over priced. Oh yea, there is nothing in the town of Belfield to do. - jprisbe

We stayed for about a week. Our site had water , sewer and electric right there and was easy to hook up to. The park was clean and quiet. The stay was great. Sites are kind of close together but there are trees in between and surrounding the whole rv park. - MakenzieAdams

Spaces were wide and adequate for a big rig. Site was not level we had to move to another site. Not much grass for walking your dog. Would probably stay here again if we were to visit Medora again. - Pete M.

This place needs work. The the pull through sites are unlevel grass, ours had deep depressions where we need to park. The access roads through the restaurant parking lot are very rough. Most of the full hookup sites are taken by long term residents, looking quite trashy. Not really worth the $24 paid, but it's the only place in town. The other "campground" here, is now filled with permanent FEMA surplus trailers being used possibly as rentals. Upside, the sites are larger than those found at the two private campgrounds in Medora and not as dusty. - Teacher's Pet

Upside: good restaurant, Dairy Queen next door, friendly staff Downside: 18-wheelers rolling around, freeway and highway noise, train nearby, laundry is at motel not at campground and not an easy walk with a full basket of laundry, dusty - Oldtymrs
