Red Trail is a family owned and operated campground, providing campers with a second home for over 44 years. We try to provide friendly and professional service to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We have been told "You come as a stranger and leave as a friend". We hope that you will feel the same way. We try to make you feel like coming back to visit Medora and stay with us at the Red Trail Campground.

Red Trail Campground is nestled below a butte on the southeast edge of historic Medora which takes its name from the wife of its founder, a French nobleman, the Marquis De Mores. Though his dreams of a cattle empire and meat packing plant have long since vanished, the town survived to witness, and retain in history. For a short time Teddy Roosevelt stayed in Medora opening two cattle ranches. Custer camped in Medora while on his way to Montana. Many other notables besides these have stayed in Medora. Come see the Medora Musical, learn a little more about us, where the west picks up its heels and parts of history began. Browse through our shops, enjoy the authentic western food at any of our restaurants, look though our museums, North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame, and drive though the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. That is the Medora experience.

Location was the best!

Walking distance to downtown and very short drive to the national park! The site was kind of unlevel but the laundry machines were great!

Fantastic Campground!

We love this campground. My husband and I and another couple come to Medora every Labor Day weekend for the musical. We have always stayed at another campground, but this year that campground was booked. We called Red Trail and they had 2 open sites. We will be going back to Red Trail from now on. The staff are so helpful and kind. The campground itself is very cozy and we loved all the trees!

Good location

The campground was well maintained and meet all my expectations. No problems with the wifi. Hoped to see the Medora Musical, but it didn't start until the second week in June.
