We took our 31 foot Airstream and towed it up this mountain. There was one turn around point maybe 1/2 mile into the road but that area was muddy and trashed. There was liter and old tires laying around so we kept going. That was a bad idea! There was no additional turn around points for the next 2.5 miles. The roads were very rocky and muddy. When we got to the top, we immediately turned around because we did not want to get stuck as it was going to rain later that week. It was a beautiful view if you don't mind trekking up 3 miles to the possibility of not being able to stay. We even stopped for a couple minutes at the top and took some pictures. We only saw one area at the top were you could camp besides the area at the bottom that was dirty. BTW, there was good signal due to a tower on the top of one of the other mountains. Just wanted to make sure we warned anyone just in case they had a large trailer and got stuck!

Definitely need 4WD and if you have just a truck camper, we would totally recommend that you could stay but don't try to tow anything up there!
