We stayed here in August 2021 and loved boondocking at this campground. We had a 36ft Class A with tow vehicle and appreciated the pull thru sites that had plenty of room to spare. No hookups or dump station, so be prepared. Sites along the west side have great views out to the hills and walking paths to the river. Very quiet campground with short drives to great hiking at TRNP. Be careful of bison driving at night, they appear where you least expect them! We had site 9 which was one of the best sites for views with a big rig.

We very much enjoyed our campsite in the Cottonwood Campground. All sites are within easy walking access to restrooms (no showers) and most have ample trees and scrubs around so you're not staring at your neighbors. I don't believe any of the sites have hookups, but if there are there are very few so plan on boondocking. Half the sites are reservable, the other half are first come, first served. If you don't have reservations, plan on getting into the campground early in the am and stalking sites that are emptying... you'll be SOL if you're coming in late in the day and hoping (that was us). Not much in the way of hiking near the campground, so we were moving our RV daily, but our site was never disturbed and we left belongings there during the days we were gone. Would very much enjoy staying again and would make reservations next time around.

We spent two nights in Medora. We were tent camping and the setting was beautiful. Hearing that breeze at night through the Cottonwood trees was pure medicine for the soul. The campground was neat and clean and exactly what we needed. I recommend it highly.

We only stayed one night en route on a longer trip out west, but it was a really pretty spot to camp — we managed to reserve one of the walk-in sites overlooking the river (you can only reserve odd-numbered sites). We camped in early July and didn't get to the park until around 7, and the FCFS sites had just filled. It would also have been super peaceful if there hadn't been a group of young guys at the site next to us who didn't care about quiet hours. The walk-in sites are spaced out decently but don't have any privacy between them. They aren't a super long walk to get to - we have a big tent, and it was no big ordeal to get all our stuff to our site. They must have just redone the bathrooms here; they are by far the nicest bathrooms I've ever seen at a campground (note: no showers). Most of the sites were a decent size that would have accommodated our 10x15 tent. Overall really nice, and we'd definitely stay here again.

This park has quickly become one of my favorite National Parks. The campground is part of the reason. The host is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rangers are informative. The campsites are spacious and the amenities are clean. The south loop has 2 bathroom locations with flush toilets. Water spigots are throughout the campground and very accessible. Wildlife frequents the campground. Bison were right behind my site. Someone else reported also seeing wild horses. We’ve also spotted several rattlesnakes. None are to be feared...just keep your distance and don’t interfere with them.
