    Stay in the town of Medora. There are a couple of campgrounds there. You also will want to take in the Medora Musical in the outdoor amphitheater - it is western theme and if you are a veteran it is also very patriotic. But before the musical take in the "Pitchfork Fondue." They cook ribeye steaks on pitchforks and serve it all in a buffet setting outdoors with a spectacular view. Look for the elk on the hillsides. If you miss this you have missed a once in a life time experience. Here are a couple of links to check out.
    Medora - North Dakota's #1 Vacation

    Medora, North Dakota, Visitor Information

    We have stayed at the Medora campground. It has full hookups and a pool. All the spots are gravel. Make reservations and be sure to tell them the total length of your rig (stretch the length a little to be sure you get a big enough site). You can also make arrangements to go the fondue and musical from here. It's right next to the park entrance. The park itself is a drive to through the North Dakota badlands with some neat views and you may see some bison and antelope.

    You will need at least two nights to do this - you can tour the park and take in the musical in one day. Depending on what time you get there you should walk around the town of Medora (small western town) and visit the many shops and listen to Teddy Rooseveldt give his speech from of the buildings balconies.

    Anytime for June to the end of August is good for a visit.

      We have stayed in both the Northern and Southern units of this park. We always stay inside the parks in their campgrounds, which are very nice and have sites capable of handling large RVs. As with most NP campgrounds there are no hookups.

        We too chose to stay at the NP's instead of a campground. We boondocked for 4 days with no trouble. Actually at a few of the sites there was a water spigot. The scenic loops are fantastic. If you're into golf, you must play Bully Pulpit. It is phenomenal!! Can't wait to go back and play it again.
        In the "upper" NP campground, don't be surprised to be surrounded by Buffalo on a regular basis. What a hoot!!! We do plan on going back one day.

          When we visited the Theodore Roosevelt NP we stayed at North Park RV in Dickerson, ND. They have huge FHU sites of all sorts. We chose a back-in. When we were at this park they were giving a 50% discount to everyone with the national access card and no time limit. As you can see in the picture we had no problem finding easy dish signals. We spent a week there visiting the park and lots of the surrounding area including downtown Dickerson. The sun sets were spectacular.
