National Forest camping near Vail

I'm headed to the Vail this weekend and am looking for some insight into good areas for FS camping. I tend to sleep in truck and just want to know of any good forest service roads that have dispersed campsites.

The snow line is still pretty low around here. Not sure if the Piney Road is open yet. Your best bet may be south of Minturn and Red Cliff on Highway 24. There are some decent semi-roadside campgrounds just past Red Cliff that will be accessible.
