The drive into town from I-94 is scenic as you descend into the valley. Red Trail campground is also sorta scenic, nestled below a rocky butte on the southeast edge of town. The best thing about this campground is the location. It's a short couple block walk to all the restaurants, shops, bars, museums, etc in historic downtown Medora and Medora is at the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The worst was their restrooms and showers. Had to wait quite awhile before any hot water showed up in the shower and you definitely want to wear your flipflops when you shower. There was a sand play area for kids right outside the womens restrooms. Looked like someone had hauled their kid rightouta there and drug him directly into the shower without shaking any sand off first. But besides easily-cleaned surface dirt like that; the long time bulit-up grime getting a good hard soap & clorox brush scrubbing would sure help.
The staff was friendly enough but very busy when we checked in. The guy that guided people to their sites was also constantly on the run. Think the main problem here is the place is understaffed. The campground was OK, there are alot of shady sites, ours was graveled and level. The sites are somewhat close together but this is a rather isolated tourist area, so choices are limited. Utilities and WIFI all worked OK. I liked that you only paid for the type of site and utilities you want to use. Full-hookup W/E/S, W/E, E, tent, back-in or pullthru, cable TV were all optional. They give a Good Sam Discount, see their website for rates, etc. There is a railroad about a block away, but no train whistles allowed in Medora so the noise was minimal during our stay. There is only one lone convenience store/gas station in town and no chain fast-food restaurants, only local establishments which made for a small western-town laidback atmosphere I enjoyed.
