Great location right outside the park. Utilities all worked well. Beautiful walk down to the Little Missouri River. Train tracks nearby but they're not allowed to blow their horn through town, so all you hear is the low rumble as they go by, no big deal. Cons: sites are very close together, but that's pretty expected of a private FHU campground right outside a NP.
Great campground overall! Sites are a little close together (especially for RVs) and the tent sites are on uneven, rocky ground half the time. We went in mid September so the season was over and it wasn’t too crowded but I could see being frustrated by lack of privacy during peak season. You can hear the train at night, not a big deal for me but it’s relatively frequent and noisy. That being said the amenities are great - camp store, private showers, clean bathrooms, even a few tent sites with water and electric. It’s right in a scenic little cove and if you walk a bit there’s rocky beach access right on the Little Missouri River. It’s also walkable to TRNP which is fantastic.
Overnight and enjoyed quick drive (one block) to entry of National Park. Good access, crowded, but had an easy site to access.. Nice fun downtown (2 blocks) Bike trail at entrance also!!
We stayed here for one night on a 3-week road trip, and our boys declared it their favorite campground we stayed at! We stayed in the of the cabins, which had a really cool loft area the boys loved. Being able to walk down to the river and explore was neat. Bathrooms were clean. We had no complaints whatsoever here, and wished we could have stayed longer!
Close campsites. We only stayed one night going to the National park. Very small town, only one gas station that is also the small grocery store. Fun putt putt golf in town.
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.
Beautiful and short walk to the Little Missouri River. Very close to Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Nice size camping spots.
After arriving late for a site in the Theodore Roosevelt NP we decided on this one. Since I have a small van with a bed I was able to get a nice tent site with plenty of room to spread out. Bathrooms and showers are nice and clean. Surprised to see bats flying at night it was actually cool. Definitely would stay here again.
We stayed 3 nights in a PT FHU for $177. The sites are dusty red dirt (but that's the natural landscape of the area) and a little close together. The staff is very friendly and they have a small store on site. There's a picnic table, but it was very hot outside without shade. There's a great creek within walking distance that you can cool off in and let the dogs run around. The proximity to Teddy Roosevelt NP is the winner to stay!
This park is close to Theodore Roosevelt National Park The bathroom and shower were clean. That’s the end of the good news. The sites are small and very tight. We couldn’t open our canopy. When we stepped out our door we were looking right in the window of the neighbors. Lots of dust and bugs. The staff was not very friendly. They have the only campground in town, and know it. Next time I will camp 20 miles away and drive to the park.
