G'day Mick,
the track can be a bit rough, but no problems, just take your time. I go through there quite often with a trailer. Don't go if there has been heavy rain unless you have plenty of time.

You can pull of the track for camping.
I found a good scheldered spot about 40 km before you get to the Lassetter HWY.
I road gravel pit on the r/h side of the road.
You can keep out of the wind and you won't be seen from the track unless you have a roaring fire.

We've camped off to the left about 40k east of Mulga Pk, found an old track and wandered out of sight of the road to a sheltered spot.
There are quite a few faint tracks leaving the road, just pick an unused one and go for it.
There is free camping area at Curtin springs too. Just have to pay for power if you want it.
When we were last that way the only access to Mt Conner (4 years ago) was on a guided tour from Curtin, no camping but it may have changed now.

Found a few goods tools on this track due to corrugations shaking gear off other vehicles.
Corrugations can be horrendous if there moving stock.
Camping can also be poor in spots due to weeds/thorns/degradation of land due to poor management.
My advice is if you can't afford 2 days to do this route take the bitumen

the road's a doddle.
A few years ago we camped on the left of the road about 10km after leaving the hwy. Nice rocky area with plenty of sandy ground for the swags. We could hear the traffic on the Stuart in the distance, so you might consider moving further west.
