1 Review of Scoria Pit Dispersed Camping
Beautiful Views with great access to TRNP and Medora.

We arrived just after a rain. That made things a little messy to get in. There is a large mud pit on one side of the road and tire ruts on the other. Once you get past that, you're pretty golden. There is a loop you can pull into on the left. But, you won't get the views there. We're in a class c and went up a bit. We have views of the badlands and park. Halfway up is as high as we saw any rigs over 30ft go. There were a couple TT's at the summit. Lots of vans, popups and smaller c's up the foothill. It's windy, and you will hear some highway noise. When it's really windy, trucks hit the rumble strips often. It was pretty dead here most of the time. Labor Day weekend brought a lot of tent campers. Everyone is pretty quiet though. No cell signal st the bottom. Great AT&T and Verizon as you go up. Easy acces to Medora and the south unit if TRNP. The trails for the petrified forest are further down River rd. We used Sully Creek SP for water and dumping. There was no price listed, so we donated a few bucks.
