When we were there us was fairly well graded and there were campers driving regular sedans. Unless you are in a Ferrari, you should be fine. It’s a cool place!

It's no more than two miles, probably less. It is not well graded. You have to go from side of the road to the other at some spots to avoid large pot holes or ruts...but its doable. We've been there in a 25 ft Air stream which has poor clearance. That being said it is a great campground and well worth the effort. You are surrounded by the sawtooth mountains with lots of interesting rocks to climb around the campground.

We've camped back in there with a small 19 ft RV towed by our Honda CR-V. The road is dirt but graded. It can be bumpy, if it hasn't been done in awhile but we've never encountered any deep potholes. There are large motorhomes back in there.so the campground is accessible. Once inside the campground the roads are gravel and easy to drive on. We love it. We now have a 32 ft Class C and wouldn't hesitate taking it back there.

The dirt road is bumpy and washboard in some parts...drive slow and take it easy. We did it pulling a 35ft 5th wheel, no problem

Fairly decent one mile dirt road, with a few dips, just take it slow.

It’s just over a mile with some washboarded areas and some area of loose sand/dirt. Definitely want to take it slow.
