Smokey Boulder Road is an easy gravel bypass around New Meadows, Idaho, and it can be driven by any vehicle. The major hazards are blind curves and moderate washboards in places. Much of the road travels through dense forest.

Camping is interesting, with many designated, signed, and numbered campsites along the ridge portion of the road. It is set up like a linear campground, with up to about a quarter mile between sites. Some sites have fire pits and pit toilets, while others don't. A few sites are accessible pulling a trailer, but many are not.
