“family owned and operated”

Red Trail is a family owned and operated campground, providing campers with a second home for over 33 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, and drive though the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. That is the Medora experience.

Lady at desk insisted I drive my motorhome through trees where the opening was less than my width. Impossibe to do without scratching the paint. She argued with me, said she would throw me out with no refund of my deposit. The owner prohibits the cutting of trees so it's impossibly to move about this CG. Park is worn out and a bad value for $39.00/night. Don't let her argumentative attitude spoil your visit to a nice little town.

This is a very old Campground/Rv Park with the third generation of operators. Like an old chair this park is a little worn and threadbare, but very comfortable and relaxed. The wife takes care of the office and store, the husband gets everyone to their spots and keeps the park perking. The kids can be seen doing chores, but mostly playing on the grounds. This is a very nice family that we have enjoyed meeting and getting to know.
This is a big park about 90 sites both RV and tenting, as well as overflow on adjacent property. The sites are mostly back-in with only a few pull through.
There are both 30 & 50 amp, water and some sites with sewer. Tenting sites are with and without power and water. You choose the service you want. All sites have cable, very good cable with 60+ channels. Wi-Fi is also good.
This park is at the doorstep of North Dakota's Badlands. Everything is stone and rock and hard clay, and all very dry, soil is at a premium and so is grass. The grass here looks used, it is a little thin in places around the sites.
The grounds are clean and neat for the large number of users, but it is not a garden. The sites are close but wide enough for a picnic table and your awnings and/or slide-outs.
There is no grocery store in Merdora. The store here is very close to a mini-convenience store. It has a surprisingly large and current stock of basic groceries as well as a lot of RV accessories and supplies.
The bathrooms are adequate and basically clean. They could probably use a commercial deep cleaning and updating, but are very serviceable. I used the bathroom and shower and found them acceptable.
There is also a large laundry we used.
The park is not the destination, Medora and its activities and Teddy Roosevelt National Park are the attractions, this is the best jumping off place in town.
We look forward to returning.
