There is an option to open the map in maps. I opened it in Google maps and hit directions and it took me right there. Hope this helps.

I entered from this road. It’s about 9 miles of pretty rough driving, keep that in mind. I wouldn’t recommend if you’re only planning on staying a day or two. I found a nice private area off the main road. Dropped pin https://goo.gl/maps/euXhaAWoMsG9DviX7

Looks like Middle March Road goes off of US 80 to the NE and miles later it cuts 687.. turn left on 687. Just open Google Maps or Earth and look around... The GPS coordinates are included in all Campendiums reviews or you can visit the BLM website.. Then figure out the access you zoom in really close and actually look for RV's and or turnouts that look like already established sites/fire rings etc.

I've camped here twice, once in 2018 and once in 2011. Both times for two weeks. I was there to camp, hike, and climb. Mountain Project offers some good information for you too. I hope you go and safely enjoy your visit. BTW: In 2011 I drove my modified VW G60 to the END of the road. I averaged about 4mph though. Now I have a 4wd and still drove with caution. You can do it!
