The nice thing about Raven Cliffs is the proximity to the parking lot. Just bring all your stuff and walk it in from the car. Great time to experiment with your gear and lots of knowledgeable folks to help you out.
I know that place well. I've led some GATC club hikes up there and just down the hill at Dukes Creek Falls. I usually just day hike around here, but have admired so of the nice camping near the creek.
