I think it would be pretty cool to do that one weekend.
I think (but don't quote me) the Forest Service discourages folks from camping in structures like this that aren't maintained. It's simply a collapse hazard (honestly I would rather sleep outside in a tent than under that roof). But I doubt it is against any kind of law. The Forest Service is planning on closing off motorized access to that cabin, so in a couple years it will only be hiking access and will probably be a lot less used.
