Section 2 of the CT is one of my least favorite stretches of land; it's a burn area that runs along a ridgeline that Mama Nature uses as a lightening rod.
Plus, camping is prohibited within some distance of the S Platte at the north end of the section and it's an exposed climb up to the abandoned quartz mine. After that you're still pretty exposed for the next mile or so. The south end of section 2/north end of section 3 might be good. There is a formal campground off of a paved/plowed road towards the end of section 2. Still a dry camp, but should be easy to get to assuming the gate isn't closed for winter. I'll be up in that area this weekend and can check.
