Smithsonian Butte Rd. , Rockville UT

Is it possible to haul a small fifth wheel camper from Rockville Utah south on Smithsonian Butte Road to Big Plain Junction. We're also hoping to camp close to near Rockville if there is any BLM land to pull over on. Are there any other alternatives for camping within 30 miles of Springdale on the west side of Zion where we can camp on BLM land and not have to leash our dogs.

Here's a site for Smitsonian. Plan to drive ourselves this year but with a SUV. Don't think I would pull a 5th wheel over it but maybe local experts can tell you more.
