BEST $2.50 WE EVER SPENT!
This campsite is in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Western North Dakota. The river runs right along the edge of the campground, and the cottonwood trees were a brilliant gold as the bright October sun shown through the remaining leaves. The strong wind had already taken care of many of the leaves, and they lay on the ground in a colorful carpet. The sites in a National Park are normally $10, but with a Golden Age Pass they are half that, at $5. However, they had turned off the water in this park so were charging half price. We camped for $2.50 a night, which would transulate into $75 for a month's rent! Bet you can't beat that!
