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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

You really have to try the Pitchfork Steak Fondue and take in the Musical. Unique and we were surprised at the quality of the food and entertainment.

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Theodores in the Rough Riders Hotel is an excellent place for a fine dining experience. And, Badlands Pizza has outstanding pizza. Don’t overlook the badlands tour in the North Unit which is gorgeous.

Well when we finally found the place, we were unsure about the entrance compared to the website photos. It looked very deserted at first, then we saw several RVs parked nearby. When we saw the Check-In office we were relieved. The young man at the office was most gracious and was happy to show me how to get out our Site 129. He said this was their last week, as the park was closing for the season, September 16th. The park is all gravel/dirt sites and mostly level, with very large Cottonwood trees. Sites are fairly close to each other but nothing unusual. All hookups easy to access, and our site was long enough to unhook and still leave our truck enough room to park. No Cable or Antenna available, but Wi-Fi (Public) access was good. Restrooms/Showers & Laundry close by. This Park is definitely setup up for easy access to "Teddy Roosevelt National Park" and would also be a good overnighter. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

"Teddy Roosevelt National Park" is a must, which is a 35-mile drive loop with many pullovers with scenic views and several "Prarie Dog Towns". The very small town of Medora mostly shuts down after Labor Day. Only 1 gas station which includes a small market. Give yourself time to fill up during Seasonal months.

Perfect location to Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit / the Badlands. Full hook-ups, excellent wi-fi capable of streaming Hulu, good AT&T cell signal but no T-Mobile. Quiet park, mostly sightseeing adults / retirees when we were here (late August). Our site was mostly level, long enough for our Rv with the tow parked sideways behind it. We were able to fill our onboard propane here. I thought this park was an excellent value; would definitely stay here again. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

No grocery or gas stations nearby. Very close to T.R. National Park entrance. Entry to the park is $30 per vehicle - recommend an America the Beautiful pass ($80 annual if you're not yet 62) if you plan to visit lots of national parks.

Showers were private. Bathrooms were mostly clean. Spaces were tight, not much room to yourself. Price is high, but free WiFi which worked better in our first site than second. Beautiful views. Access to pools. We camped at Medora Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights in Medora to see the musical. Reservation process was good, check in was smooth. Sites are a bit tighter than we prefer, but we had good neighbors so it was no issue. We would stay here again. I rate it as a 9 rather than a 10 just because the sites are a bit tighter than we prefer. *If traveling with dogs, the dog area isn't the best as there is prickly pear cactus in it. Stay at the edge and you won't have an issue. However, the park just down the road on the edge of town allows off leash which gave us a chance to really give the dogs a good run. Just PLEASE, pick up after your "kids". We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice location in regards to the night show. It sits on the Little Missouri River. The campground was full when we were there and our neighbors are quite close. Our neighbor's sewer connection is very close to our picnic table. We did not use the table, but it still is not an appetizing setup. Also, there was a grill at our site. It had not been cleaned so the grill had a hefty stack of burned wood in it. In spite of these issues, we would stay 1 or 2 nites again ay this location.

It is convenient to the Medora Musical Show. There is a 36 mile badlands park nearby with a scenic wildlife drive and good area for hiking. Also, south of town about 3 miles is a scenic 9 hole golf course.

We had made our reservations 4 months prior for a FHU site for 2 nights. We have a 36 foot fifth wheel. The first site we were given was not doable. We were told to we had to pull through a back-in site. Utilities were on wrong side and we would have to drive through a large grassy area to return to the road. When we complained we were told someone would come out to the site and we were to try again. So, after the second attempt, the office agreed it was not going to work. They said there was only one site available that we would fit into. It was unbelievable how close we were to our neighbors. After a lot of maneuvering we finally got into the site and luckily we had very nice neighbors on either side. Our neighbor's sewer hose was directly underneath our camper steps. We were able to get our slide out, but not our awning. We could not move the picnic table next to the camper, so it was out by the road. The staff attitude was very disappointing. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a busy campground right at the entrance to the North Dakota Badlands. The sites and well laid out but they have put as many sites in the campground as they can. That said, they were clean and efficient and it is the best campground to stay at if you want quick access to the Badlands. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rustic can be charming. Or rustic can be dust, dirt, mud and clay with weeds and unmowed grass sites. Minimal energy and money on maintenance. Spaces are not just unlevel, they have lumps/speed bumps. The only differentiation between spaces are the utilities. We had a back in space that was so short we decided to drive thru a field just to get into the space. The office guy even suggested it. Vehicles everywhere. Poor access to satellite/cottonwood trees and no cable. Other utilities worked fine. Park is only 1/2 mile from the NP entrance and town. Medora is a cool little town that we really enjoyed. National Park was magnificent. The price you pay for access is a very average/at best RV park. There are really only 2 choices in the greater park area (discounting camping in the park). Loved the town and park but I would not come back. It is a long haul from anywhere and this park seems to do the minimum. I really have nothing positive to say about the park other than it's location. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Pulled in without a reservation & got an OK site. Dirt pad, dirt roads. Trees. So there was shade. At $42 for the night it seemed pricey for what we got. Lots of family's there looking like they were having lots of fun. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Positives: Very, very close to the entrance of Theodor Roosevelt NP. Pretty nice setting as well. Has a playground my kids enjoyed. Negatives: The sites were too close (but plenty long). I made sure that I left enough room next to my neighbor's picnic table as to not crowd them when I pulled in, but the neighbors on the other side of me did not do the same. We had maybe 2' of clearance between our picnic table and the neighbor's rig. I think the price is too much considering how packed in the sites were & given the location. Bathrooms were adequate & had tp, hand soap and hand dryers. Did not shower there. Wish I had stayed inside TRNP instead. We camped at Medora Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit expensive for what you get, but excellent location to T. Roosevelt NP. Our site was extremely close to our drivers side neighbor. Site next door was a very short pull through. Their awning almost touched our slide out. We could see straight into their coach as they could see into ours. Park is mostly gravel and dirt. Rained first day and water and mud puddles stayed for our 3 days there. Our sewer hookup was under our neighbor's table. Careful walking pets as there is prickly pear cactus in perimeter areas.
