I've taken my 2wd Tacoma with popup camper in tow several times, often at night. No problems at all. Just take it slow.

Not trying to deter you, but I don't want you trying to get in there without adequate support.

Also - even with a really good SUV (or equivalent) don't even consider trying to tow a trailer in. It's too tight with steep drop offs from both entries.
I want the sticker I see on many Jeeps.

Stocking report says they've been putting fish in Low Gap Creek for the past few weeks so the roads got to be good enough to get a stocking truck at least that far. Worst case you can always walk to Low Gap Creek in about an hour if you follow the trail that runs above the river but that's not my favorite trek as I always see bear tracks rights about in the stretch where the hooch funnels through that steep gorge.

I was just up there last week the roads were fine and I passed a few passenger cars heading up and down the mountain. Although i didn't go too far past the check in cabin.

I talked to one of the guys at Unicoi Outfitters in Helen about 2 weeks ago and he stated the campground is open... You might want to pack your gear just in case...
