It is open, it is dry. There are a bunch of people that camp on it. I will suggest you follow FR700 (piney rd) 6.5 miles. Camping on 700 sucks due to the large amount of people that drive to Piney lake at the weekend. Turn left at fr734. Go 1.6 miles greatest campsite that I know of. This is the start of the Buffher creek trail. You'll see a sign. There is a wooden pit toilet behind the big tree.
Get gas in Summit Co, it'll save you $$.
I'll try come up and meet you.
