Where to stay in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

If you're intent on sleeping in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, you can pitch a tent in the campground in the North Unit or the South Unit. The park offers a special horse campground in the South Unit for visitors on horseback, but you can stay here even without a horse. The small town of Medora near the entrance to the South Unit has a collection of motels and a couple of campgrounds. If you're looking for more options for dining and services, choose one of the hotels in the town of Dickinson east of the park. The region's thriving oil industry makes accommodations harder to come by in summer, so book ahead if you plan to visit at that time.
