Towing a tent trailer to Rock Creek?

I am heading to Montana next week around Missoula, and was wondering if it really is suicidal to try and take a trailer up Rock Creek Rd? We were talking about hitting Harry's Flat campground, and there might be a good storm Tuesday and Wednesday, so it would be nice to not have to be on the ground in a tent.
I've never been, so I don't know what to expect there.

Cool...appreciate it guys! It is a super small and light one, so I was thinking it might be fine. Now I gotta start tying some flies up for it!

Harry's Flat is 17 miles from I-90 and ~ 5 miles from the blacktop. I've pulled my raft trailer up and down that road for years. It's no problem if you take it easy. It gets very narrow in places and there are herds of sheep crossing the road.

Sometimes they grade the road and if you happen to drive it right afterwards you'd wonder what all the fuss was about.

Tent trailer will be fine. Those cumbersome 5th wheelers should be banned, though.

Was one of those guys last October with about a 20 foot camping trailer. Was actually tighter on some of those blind corners on the blacktop than later on. Luckily it was Fall timeframe. Should be fine!

Those tight corners are really scary when any festival is going on at Rock Creek. Drunks!

I was there last week and drove 25 miles up the dirt road and pulled my drift boat the whole way while scouting the area for bank fishing. Narrow at times but a smoothe dirt road and an occassional place to turn around. Go for it!
