Red Trail Campground
250 East River Road (Red Trail St.)
Medora, ND 58645

August 27-28, 2016

These comments are just the experience of the two RV Gypsies and do not make the campground good or bad in general.

Red Trail is a family owned and operated campground. It is open summers - May 15 through September 30. 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. This was a very busy campground, so reservations are recommended.

An office worker led the two RV Gypsies and their RV to their space. At first the roads were paved, but had some watery holes in them. But as the two RV Gypsies got to their space, the roads were not paved. This was a very busy campground and the two RV Gypsies were glad that they had made reservations.

Every RV gets escorted to their site and the staff member directs backing in or pulling into the site and stays until the RV is totally parked. Do not move the RV after staff has left. No wood fires allowed per city ordinance. No grills on picnic tables.

The campground advertised 100 sites, modern rest rooms with showers, laundry room with 4 washers and dryers, and a small grocery store, all of which the two RV Gypsies did not explore.

Below: The back-in space for the two RV Gypsies. Gravel roads and gravel/muddy site. Full hook-ups, 50 amps. The campground had coded Wi-Fi but it was ultra-super slow, so the two RV Gypsies used their own Wi-Fi. Cable TV cost extra money. Trains could be faintly heard, but no train horns, on this date.
