2014-09-08 I noticed nobody has updated this one in awhile. The road was predictably very good. Some dips and washboards that were less than pleasant in my low riding passenger car, but true to the description. You can park right next to the trailhead, but you can‘t camp there. The camping area is a few hundred yards away, but you have to pay. There are increasingly better dispersed camping options the more you hike in but not much close to the TH. addrock528
