If you go now you won't run into this but in the summer the river is packed and the better (tent) camping spots go quick. So if you are with tenters (I was) it makes it a little trickier to get a spot.
There is a great spot up a feeder creek past Turnhole bend aobut a mile on the north side of the river. It is just wide enough to get a kayak in but opens up and shallows out. You go about 100 feet up the creek and it forks. The right fork is just fed by run-off from the hills. The left fork is fed by a spring that comes up out of a cave. The best way to find it is to check the water temp coming out of the feeder creeks. In summer it will be ice cold. In winter it may feel warmer. The reasons it is so good of a place to camp is A) it is not a camp site B) clean cold water C) you are up off the river a ways and more secluded.
The kayak/canoe "cradle" at Dennisons is a trip.
Aha..."cradle". That sounds much
kinder and gentler than a "shoot". But honestly as steep as it is I sort of launched my boat down like a slow
shooting out. I did hold on to my rope so as not to have the boat leave without me and the rest of the gear. Fun times! I can't wait for it to warm up and hit it again this spring.
