Wonderful and friendly! “

Great host family. Front desk was very helpful. They escorted us to our spot. Playground was large and great for our kids (1,2,4,&8). Showers were clean and open late. C store was a lifesaver!!! Oh and you get a guest gift. We will be back!!!

More an RV park than a campground.

We had trouble finding a campground near Theadore Roosevelt NP and had to settle on this one. It was in Medora,SD and the spaces were extremely close to each other. It was a convent to get to the NP and the staff there was very friendly. They could use some maintainer and cleaning on their bath house. It was had spiderwebs everywhere and was not very clean. They had full hook-ups and some spots with just water. This campground was geared more for people staying only a few nights to watch the towns musical MEDORA not really for camping.


This campground was good. There are 2 campsites with full hookups, that includes electric. But it was taken by RV campers when I got there. The sites there are family run.They don't maintain the campground very well. The showers were really clean and the site was pretty clean too. The site s fill up very quickly so you should go pretty early. I went at 9 in the morning and the sites were almost filled already. The sites are really big an can fit 3 5 person tents.

Pretty, But Not Off-Season-Friendly

We stayed at the Red Trail Campground in Medora, North Dakota, the last weekend in April 2016. This private campground is quite large for such a small town, but during the off-season there are only about 15 sites available. The sites are primitive through electric, water, and sewer hookups. Cable was available for $5 more. We did not pay for it. Somehow, the Wi-Fi is not available in the off-season, even though the signal is there… in other words, even though it is advertised for this campground, they will not give you the password until May 15. That was a bit frustrating for us as we planned to be able to post photos and blog from the campground during the evening. The site itself was small. We have a 17' travel trailer that just fit, with a picnic table next to it. Our site did not have a grill at it, but there were several empty sites that had portable charcoal grills available so we were allowed to move one to our location. There is a shower house, but it is another amenity that is closed during the off-season, so we cannot give our opinion on that service. We never saw an adult owner during our stay. The oldest son was in charge of our check in, guiding us to the site, explaining that there was no Wi-Fi in April, and taking our money, which was cash and check ONLY, NO CREDIT CARDS. In addition, although it is a Good Sam park, we we not able to get a discount for membership because it was "off-season prices". Although the young man was friendly and helpful, we would have felt more secure in our stay speaking with someone over 18 on the premises. The location to Theodore Roosevelt National Park was the main reason for our stay, and for this we were not disappointed. The campground is located near the BNSF railroad tracks, so expect to hear an occasional train pass by (including horn blares). In general, the campground is located away from the main roads, so it was quite quiet besides the trains, and we had a very nice bluff view behind us at our site.
