If you can't find a place to camp on Union Pass Road, you aren't trying. The road traverses the high ground between Dubois (locals pronounce "DEW boys", FYI) and Pinedale (roughly). There is a lot of dirt road here, at least 70 miles from one side to the other. Once you get away from ranches and vacation homes you'll drive into national forest. The road is washboarded and has some potholes, but I was in 2WD from Dubois to the Pass and never even glanced at my 4WD lever. I DID air down my tires and would recommend doing so. The climb from Dubois is quite steep for 5-6 miles (most of it through private property) and once you get to the National Forest it levels out a bit. There are spur roads and clearing everywhere. Check Google maps satellite view. We arrived on Friday before the eclipse and felt like we had the place to ourselves. We parked in a large meadow with 20 other large campers and could not see another vehicle. Note: The road is listed on the "dangerous drive" website. It could see it being dangerous in a whiteout blizzard. Or if you were drunk. We saw Subarus and old Fords. We also saw Elk, antelope and bear tracks. It IS grizzly country, to take proper precautions. We did have dogs and kids and had zero problems. Big views, good nearby fishing, and no cell service makes for a great place to watch an eclipse or get away from everything.
