No, folks around here are generally fairly nice but the exceptions are are out there. There are however some legal camping options that I and others have given you beta for. Why don't you use one of those campgrounds instead of causing conflicts between boaters and land owners in a heavily used resource that is greatly valued by the area boating community. Just sounds fairly duechy saying you are going to show up and camp wherever the hell you want, and if anyone tells you otherwise you will call the cops. There are laws and then there is common sense. I value common sense. I am not saying everyone around here is a trigger happy hillbilly (we do have some of those though), what I am saying is don't expect a nice reception when you go waving your "legal papers" in people's faces and telling them your ranger fu•<ing Rick.

No I said my friend told me to camp where ever I want...I'm not trying to imply that I am going to do so but I mearly wanted to know what is the deal when I get there is all sorry if I came accross differently. I am not looking to piss anyone off and surley am not going to do anything screw up a good thing. My biggest questions were wheather or not there are in fact campgrounds along the Blackfoot because when I look on maps I see "parks" but didn't find anything about camping so thank you all for helping me figure this out.

I treat everyone the way I want them to treat me. I also won't shit in my own yard so I'm not going to do so in anyone else's.

It is critical on the Blackfoot not to piss off the landowners. Paws up has shut down access to most of the riverside land. however as I mentioned they own a major put in that they could shut down if people piss them off too much. Landowners are much more tolerant of rafters if they don't violate their private property rights. Don't be an asshole and hopefully they won't be that to us. The Blackfoot is really not a prime overnight run. Much work has gone on between stakeholders including regulators landowners and recreationalists. Sometimes it's a tenuous group but things seem to be going smooth, let's keep it that way
