Yes. You will be fine just off of the main road. Get there midday or late morning to get the best available spots as people clear out from the night before. But if it rains or there was a recent rain, I would stick close to the main road as much as possible - lots of mud.

Absolutely! If you are not towing a trailer and are only in a car, you can utilize the majority of this area. The main road in is a graded gravel road until you get to the very last area (at the fence). Many spot are directly off of the main road. The side areas get a little tough, but should be no problem just go slow.

Definitely. Very smooth road getting in. Lots of spots accessible right off the main road.

Yes! The road is a little washboarded but it's fairly easy to get in and out of. There are also options to camp very near the entrance of the road that you could camp in order to not have to drive very far on the main road. Hope that helps!

There is all kinds of free camping along this road, a lot of it easy to get to and just off the highway. We made it no problem in a Nissan Altima :)

Yes but your best, easiest places to camp are the sites closest to the entrance. My small FWD vehicle made it over the rocks to a large far from the entrance spot but it was not a good idea for our large motorhome.

Yes, the road is gravel for most of the way down. The further down you go the more rugged and sandy it gets so use caution. Good luck!

Most definitely. There are popular mountain bike trails at the end of this road so and you frequently see cars coming down it.

There is a main road that is very well maintained. Some of the side roads are a little tougher, but you can make it on them if you know how to drive.
