Camping on the river
According to Paul Beebe, there are two really nice places to camp other than the designated river campsites. The first is just past Whitten access on river left. It is less than 1/4 mile past Whitten. I have it marked on a map. The other is a mile or two past Whitten on river right. The best I can remember, it is past White's Creek float camp. Both sites have ample space for tents as well as suitable trees for us tree dwellers (hammock campers). Since they are not designated campsites they do no have a picnic table or latrine.
