Nice park for a short stay

$30.00 a night gets you full hook up and a nice place to park your rig. Nomad campers have a separate section apart from the long term campers. Short term have the best view of Heart River. My only complaint would be the very rough gravel entrance road. Just go slow and all will be fine!

Medora, North Dakota, 40 minutes west, is Home to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Medora Musical Theatre. I highly recommend both and the Musical will renew your passion for our great country!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Secluded!

When we camped here it was the off season and we only had to share the campground with 3 other groups of people. It is a close drive to Theodore Roosevelt National Park which is nice because we could spend all day at the park and then easily make it back in time to cook dinner and enjoy the site as well.

Convenient campground right next to TRNP

We rolled up late in the day and they had plenty of tent sites available. Beautiful views and a nice path to sit next to the little Missouri! Fire pits are shared.

Quiet stay

Campground is huge but feels quite cozy and friendly. Helpful office staff and they take you to your site. Close to everything in town and only 30 minutes from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Full hookups. Level sites. Laundry and bathhouse were clean and convenient. Would stay again.

Great campground, sites are spaced apart

Great campsites.  Stayed in the non-electric sites (Cedar Campground) that are among the trees.  Secluded, well spaced apart from other sites.  Perfect view of the mountains.    Note-Electric sites (Whitetail Flats) are all out in a large open field.   Also, the back group of sites were all reserved for horse camping.  Easy 10 minute drive to TRNP for great hiking.  Also had local trails right at the campground.  In between Sully Creek and Little Missouri River, so kayaking/canoeing/fishing all right there.   Showers and toilets were always clean.  Rangers and on-site host were friendly and helpful.  I will go again.

Worth the drive for the peace

The campsite is a good 25 min off the highway on a dirt road so don't plan to go back-forth a lot. But it's worth it for the peace and surrounding beauty. That's what you came for right? 

We stayed Sat-Mon in late June and it wasn't crowded at all. I think the most we saw were two other camp sites filled. Even if it was at capacity, you wouldn't hear or see much of others. The sites are spaced apart and surrounded by trees. 

The water pump is a blessing since it was in the 90s when we visited. You really have to work the old fashioned pump but the crisp water is worth it. The pit bathroom is cleaned and was stocked with toilet paper. 

We wandered around the hiking area (Magpie Trail starts nearby) which follows a small creek.

Clean, nice views

Perfect for the horse enthusiast, with corrals available for every site. It was full the day I got there, but stayed for breakfast before the check ins started (I asked first). Right on the MDH Trail, for us MTB peeps.

Peaceful and clean!

NF Campground. Pay $6 per night or less with America the Beautiful pass. First come first serve. Lovely wildflowers to admire. Right on Buffalo Gap Trail which bypasses TRNP for us MTB folk.

Love it here!

We have stayed at the Cottonwood campground in the T.R. National Park a number of times & have loved it each time!! We’ve tented &, more recently, stayed in a RV - both types of stays were great!! Love the scenic drive loop because of the gorgeous views & you are guaranteed to see some wildlife - buffalo, wild horses, elk, prairie dogs, deer!! Great scenic stops along the drive in the Park. Wind Canyon was a favorite stop. We also went horse back riding (in the Park) one year that we visited. We had buffalo walk through the campsite when we were in the tent! Although there’s no designated swim beach, we were able to walk down to the river to cool off (muddy though). Great views, wild life, history, & scenery - definitely worth a trip!!

Great location with great views

Stayed here while visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The location is great as the park entrance is just a few miles away, along with the gateway town of Medora. Reservation and check in was all digital which was nice. There is no office on site, but we didn’t need anything. The owner is very responsive to messages. Great views of the surrounding area. WiFi was decent as was Verizon cell service. Full hookups for RV and everything worked great. Only thing that left us wanting a little bit was the spots were a bit close together and there are no picnic tables or fire rings. The price per night was lower than other campgrounds though. Overall great experience and would stay there again.
