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!

I love Theodore Roosevelt National Park! So pretty... we went in the early spring before the shops were open in Medora (all but a couple) and I imagine it was the same for you in the fall. The shoulder seasons are the best for seeing some of these sites :)
Happy Trails! And God's Peace...

We believe that Theodore Roosevelt National Park is the most under rated park in the system. It is so beautiful, wild, and natural. And we love that there are no crowds there! Yes, Medora was a ghost town. We ate at a tiny, rundown, fly infested joint, and the buffalo burgers weren't that great either! We are enjoyiing our adventure, and I wish you God's perfect Peace right back!
