Camping around fordyce

We have a group of 4, 3 tow rigs and trailers going to fordyce later this month and we are looking for camping/rv places. The rigs are legalish with plates for the street but we would like to stay off i80 if possible. It looks like Cisco is shut down for nightly spots. I was looking at Snowflower Rv park. From Google earth there appears to be a back road that goes around and crosses the railroad and then dumps into Eagle Lakes rd. Is this a viable option or is the road im looking at gated?

Sould we just suck it up and stay at Big Bend and drive on i80 with flashers on?

I never been without big snow drifts. I've heard that people bring large motorhomes in.

Realistically whats the travel time one on the dirt road? Im guessing its a slow go. Also the pete does have a locker so not really worried about traction just the tight turns.

Your tow rigs can make it to meadow, but the road is rough and just take you some time.

I have never camped here, but it looks beautiful. It's right where you would start the dirt road into Meadow.

Weber looks nice and all but it'd be an hour ride in the juggys to get to the trailhead at Meadow Lake
