It might be nestled in the North Dakota Badlands, but there's a whole lot that's good about Sully Creek State Park. Located just a couple miles south of Medora, this small but peaceful park is a great spot to stop for a night or two while you're heading to Theodore Roosevelt National Park or destinations further afield.
Sully Creek State Park campers can canoe and kayak on the beautiful Little Missouri River, or set out to explore the iconic Maah Daah Hey Trail on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. The park also boasts a small number of primitive campsites, making it a tranquil place to stop and escape the rest of the world for a while.
If you're planning to camp at Sully Creek State Park, let's take a closer look at how you can make the most of your stay.
Boasting a beautiful location on the banks of the Little Missouri River, Sully Creek State Park offers some of the prettiest natural scenery in North Dakota. This enviable location also means there are plenty of recreational activities for campers to enjoy.
If you're passionate about paddling, you'll relish the opportunity to take a canoe or kayak out on the river. This is quite a popular activity during springtime, and there's easy access to the water near the campground. And with spectacular views of the Badlands to be enjoyed around every turn of the river, you'll want to spend a while exploring this State Scenic River at your own pace.
Back on dry land, the park's other major attraction is that it provides access to 170 miles of the Maah Daah Hey Trail. Open all year round, the trail is popular with hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. The trail leads you past rugged peaks, breathtaking valleys, rolling prairies, and meandering rivers, and is quickly developing a reputation as one of the best outdoor experiences in North Dakota. If you get a chance to explore some of this trail, make sure you seize it with both hands.
If you plan to explore the Maah Daah Hey Trail on horseback, Sully Creek State Park is a great place to base yourself. As a designated horse park, it features 66 corrals and a range of other amenities to suit equestrian campers. However, a small additional daily fee applies per horse.
RV camping in Sully Creek State Park is a great way to experience the best the park has to offer, so book an RV in Billings County and then reserve a spot in one of the park's camping areas. Thirty-five primitive campsites are spread around three areas — Whitetail Flats Campground, Little Muddy Breaks Campground, and Cedar Campground. Some sites are set aside for horse camping only, so make sure you check the fine print before reserving your spot.
There are also six primitive group sites available if you're traveling with friends or family and want to park up for the night on the same site.
The park is clean and well-maintained, and most sites are reasonably level. A pay shower facility is available in the campground, and an RV dump station is available for added convenience.
Finally, pets are welcome to join you in the campground, but they'll need to be kept on a leash at all times.
When you've seen and done everything you wanted to in Sully Creek State Park, it's time to head out to explore the surrounding area. The good news is that you won't have to go very far to find an attraction or activity worth checking out.
If you head north just a handful of miles, it won't be long before you find yourself in the spectacular surroundings of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The park is known not only for its abundant native wildlife and spectacular scenery, but also its fascinating history.
Speaking of history, the Badlands Dinosaur Museum and Dickinson Museum Center in the nearby town of Dickinson are both well worth a visit.
Of course, if you'd rather head a little further afield to find a major center, Bismarck is a little over two hours to the east. While you're there, be sure to spend a day marveling at the hundreds of rare and exotic animals at the Dakota Zoo.
No matter which direction you steer your rental RV, you'll soon find something to put a smile on your face and kindle your love of adventure. Book an RV near Sully Creek State Park and set out to explore some of the most iconic scenery North Dakota has to offer.
