We were here over 4th of July weekend and found a spot in this off the beaten path area no problem on Saturday afternoon. If you enter the road from the entrance closest to Haystack Lake TH, the road gets bumpy and narrow after about the 3rd site in (that's as far as we took our Sprinter van), 4wd needed to go further. If you enter the road from the farther entrance it is easier to drive. There are some spectacular sites in about the middle of the road with awesome views. No cell service.
