We ran deso in the 83-84 (?) when it hit 48,500+. This was helped along with a reservoir failure on the lttle snake, this was the same failure that put northern pike into the river sysyem
. This failure plus a LOT of water made for the high flows. Camping was tough, I remember using a "turtle camp" the first night! The flow was such that we made milage quota in 2-3 hours. The pull outs were tough with huge eddies and lots of trees, limbs dead animals ect.. The only other camp I remember was rabbit valley, you may have to double up on campsites, do not let a good one go...you can always make up the miles next day! The only rapid I remember is THE Joe Hutch, those mid stream rocks made for some HUGE waves...stood a Havasu 3 straight up! The rest were washed out as I remember. This is just old history, you are on your own for your own trip...hang on and have fun.
