Henry B would stay here again

The campground is nothing special, but the location is what keeps us coming back. The backdrop to the campground is a huge scenic rock wall next to the river. You can walk down to the river and wade in the mud of the Little Missouri, or just skip rocks from the shore.

You are close to the cute little town of Medora. Medora is a pseudo-western town on the edge of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The town walks that line between authentic and touristy, not quite deciding which it is. It has a number of decent restaurants, a small store, and some entertainment. Chief among the entertainment is the Medora Musical, a hokey, old-timey musical variety show that is so cheesy it's good.

There is an ice cream store in town, too.

All of this is walkable from the campground if you are in reasonable shape.

The real draw is that it is close to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, one of the hidden gems of the national park system.

So if you want gigantic spots and modern bathrooms, this is not the place for you. But if you want a cute little town and some great scenery, this will fit the bill.

Amenities include water, 50 Amp, Sewer. I could work while there using my verizon mifi. We used this campground as a stopover and because it was recommended by a fellow camper. He like the Medora Musical which was fun and the musical stage was outstanding...overlooking the badlands. The campground is close enough to town to walk, but the town is mostly tourist. We did find a wonderful book store and the cowboy cafe where we had great rhubarb pie. we tried the recommended buffet/pitchfork steak cookout and I would not do that again! I enjoyed the people who worked at the office and our neighbors,but not the campground itself.
