The dirt roads (126 & 126.A) off of US 285 that allow dispersed camping are well cared for and can be navigated by normal passenger car.

General Site Information:
There are about a dozen developed camping areas off of FSR 126 and 126.A. There is a vault toilet that is sometimes available for use at the intersection of FSR 126 & 126.A
with a small parking area to accommodate hikers and campers to the area, although the last time I was at the site there was a sign on the restroom stating that it was closed. There is no potable water at this sites, and there are no picnic tables in the dispersed camping areas which is to be expected, but the developed camping spots do have stone fire rings and generally have nicely cleared areas to set up a tent. Several of the spots are large enough to accommodate several campers in one location, so if you are traveling with others you will want to scout out one of the larger sites.
