Families have made Medora their summer vacation destination for years, and we love seeing them grow year after year.
Every year, hundreds of families make their way back to Medora to fulfil a tradition that goes back decades.
There are so many things to do in Medora, make sure eating is one of them!
Sure, Medora is known for its Musical talent, its fantastic entertainment, and its friendly workers.
With live shows like the Medora Musical and Jared Mason: LIVE!, concerts like Legends: a Tribute by Kat Perkins and 1964: The Tribute, and historical re-enactments like A TR Salute to Medora, it’s no surprise that Medora’s other attractive qualities get lost in the mix.
But everyone’s got to eat, and conveniently, Medora has some of the best food you’ll ever taste!
The first week of June was full of painting activities for Medora visitors. The first ever “Spur Your Inner Artist with Drawing and Watercolor” 4 -day workshop was held in the Bill and Jane Life Skills Center from June 5-8th.
Taught by Wahpeton, ND native and visual artist/veteran teacher Barbara Benda Nagle, this class was a creative vacation for those who may benefit from the inspiration of the Badlands. Many in the class signed up for the Stay and Paint package, which included the workshop, lodging and the Medora Musical. At least half of the students classified themselves as beginner artists yet they all progressed rapidly through the process from drawing to painting.

But I stayed and fell in love with Medora because of Harold Schafer.
Schafer Stories: as told by John Hild – Former TRMF Maintenance Director and current owner and rancher of the land that was once the Maltese Cross Ranch.
Interviewed June 26, 2017
“I was 14 years old when Harold first came into Medora; that would have been back in the early ‘70s. My mom actually worked for Harold, she was the Head Housekeeping at the Badlands Motel and we grew up as ranch kids out in the ranching industry.
At that time Harold was getting Medora built up and rebuilt to what it is, you know, before today- regenerating it.
