Buffalo Gap Campground, near Medora, North Dakota


We headed out to Buffalo Gap Campground, a forest service campground for $6.00. At one time there was water, but there isn’t now, and only one restroom open. The road and sites are asphalt with a picnic table and fire ring. It also is by the Maah Daah Hey Trail, a 96-mile, non-motorized trail. We walked a 2-mile loop of it, and walked around the campground daily. There is a camp host, but we seldom saw him. Payment is as you come in by an information board and post. There were at most 2 others besides us and the host. It’s a nice campground; I don’t know why it’s not used more. There was a lot of traffic in the area, some of which were biking and hiking the trails. We were there 5 days, including a weekend. It’s right off I-94, so there is some road noise, worse depending on where you are parked. This is in the Badlands area. We had Verizon, no TV, 1 radio station.
