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. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Definitely attend the Medora Musical. It was awesome. The pizza place downtown (can't remember the name, but it's next to the musical's ticket office) was excellent.

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. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The badlands view is absolutely gorgeous and the trailhead for the Maah Daah Hey Trail is adjacent so bring your mountain bikes! Medora (about 2.5 miles away) is a very cute little resort town catering to Theodore Roosevelt National Park visitors. Lots of shops and restaurants to explore.

This park is usually the first night and last night of a several week trip to Montana and Wyoming. It is just the right distance from home for one hard day of driving.

I am there in the fall and at times there have been few or no other campers, other times the horse portion of the campground a bit busy.

It is quiet and away from interstate noise, will at times hear trains but along way off. Have your choice of open or in tree cover depending on preference and rig size. Place was well kept and clean, the park ranger very nice.

This is the type of quiet off the beaten path places I always try and find, hate crowed and overly commercial campgrounds. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Truck Camper.

$10 per night was for a primitive site on level gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. Additionally, we purchased the annual park permit for $20 for our RV and $20 for our tow vehicle. There were water spigots throughout the park as well as at the dump station. There were very nice pay shower stalls within the campground. If you like walking/hiking/biking/horse riding there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The southern entrance to the 120-mile Mah Daah Hey trail begins in the campground. The main campground loop is out in the open and any size RV will fit on the sites. The Muddy Breaks loop, which includes corrals, is devoted to campers with horses. The Cedar loop of the park is set up for camping units that are no higher than 10’ or wider than 9’. The last half mile drive into the campground is on a red dirt road which is quite dusty when dry and muddy when wet. The night sky is gorgeous, as are the sunsets. The campground is out in the country but only three miles from the town of Medora and the southern unit of the Theodore Roosevelt NP. There is some shopping in Medora and several good restaurants but prices seem a bit high. Cell phone service on AT&T is two bars of 4G. Verizon data coverage is was 4G LTE so we used our Millenicom Jetpack for Internet access. There was no over-the-air TV. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Motorhome.
