full of poison ivy and cottonwood

I was so disappointed with our site. We came to kayak and camp because the reviews were so high and we are going to be exploring the national park and town of Medora. We had to pay an addition 21$ upon arrival for a vehicle fee. That, combined with our 56$ space fee equaled about 25$ a night for 3…

Beautiful views!

I didn’t make a reservation, but was able to find a site just fine! I stayed in site #29, in the Pine on the Rocks area, which was the best site I saw when I was driving around looking for one. Beautiful views right from the comfort of my hammock. The shade and a nice breeze kept me cool until the…

Great site off the beaten path

This site was very scenic and secluded, with trees between the sites making them much more private. Great hiking nearby, and only a couple other people there on a weekend in June. Great option if other sites are booked. $10 cash.

Nice campground, small sites

We enjoyed Medora Campground! The sites were quite small but we spent the majority of our time in town, in the National park, or at the musical. There was construction, to expand the campground, while we were there so that was loud and noisy. Bathrooms and showers were clean.

Riverfront camping with Bison

Beautiful spot on Little Missouri River. Medora is cool little town and Maah Daah Hey trail is epic single track for bikes. Unfortunately no off-road biking in National Park so use Sully Creek State Park trailhead. Bison regularly pass through campground on way to river.

Not a bad spot for a night or two

Sites are level and fairly close together (we had an end site). Water and 50 Amp electric was fine. Great location as its a very quick walk into downtown Medora. It is far from a resort, but if you’re staying in Medora, you’re there to see the National Park anyway, not hang out at your camper.

Scoria Pit Boondocking for the Win

This is a terrific spot for any size rig. Ample room to turn around and well-maintained gravel roads to get to the site. It can be extremely windy though, so beware (60 mph gusts when we visited).

Great Primitive Camping

Makoshika State Park is beautiful camping and is about as good as it gets for primitive camping. There's quite a few hiking trials, a small museum and a gift shop at the Visitors Center. The photography options are just about endless. Also, don't let anyone fool you into believing the Diane Gabriel…

Mesa views on Little Mo at Medora

A perfect campground for equestrian campers or those visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Just 3-4 miles from Medora ND and park entrance. Open views, good trails, great birding. The sites have electric, accessible water and dump site. Showers snd vault toilets kept very clean.

Convenient location for road trippers

Decent privacy for a highway campground, and great for stargazing while still being surrounded by trees

Place had everything I needed, including a shower. Website states they are coin showers but mine was free so unsure if they just updated to free showers.
