There’s no place quite like Medora.


It’s a town of about 100 people most of the year—but May through September, several hundred thousand travelers visit here, chasing the allure of the Badlands, the experience of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the great golf or a night at the world-famous Medora Musical, which we operate here at the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation. And we do a lot of other things, too!


But we couldn’t do any of it without people like you.


By joining TRMF for an amazing summer, you join a team dedicated to having and creating fun. A summer full of adventure awaits you in Medora!
