Medora Musical

Medora Musical

Next to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the small town of Medora, North Dakota thrives as an alternative to exploring the park with the Medora Musical, the Bully Pulpit Golf Course and, plenty of tourist shops & restaurants. The most appealing name of a local restaurant is the Pitchfork Steak Fondue, conjuring  images of cowboy chefs with slabs of steaks on pitchforks.  Keeping with the old west theme you can enjoy the Badlands Pizza & Saloon,  The Little Missouri Dining Room & Saloon and Boots Bar & Grill.  There are plenty of no-frills motel options, most with pool areas to keep the youngsters entertained.

We’re parked in sites #123, 124 and 125, some of the largest (but by no means spacious) sites at the Medora Campground.  Set along the Little Missouri River, this RV park of about 150 sites set in a large cottonwood grove.  The park offers both full (water, electric, sewer) hookups and partial (no sewer) hookups with 30 and 50 amp service.  The tent sites might be the nicest here, with lots of grassy areas along the river and away from the RVs.  After a particularly heavy rain yesterday, the gravel roads and sites still have standing water puddles and the red mud is everywhere. There’s no over-the-air TV service that we can find, however the free WiFi seems to work well enough for streaming video.   The Verizon broadband service is full 3G and T-Mobile is showing full 4G access.  We’re not sure what the other RV park in town looks like, but it might be worth an exploration it before returning here.
