Upper C area - Camping with Kids?

Hey folks,
Headed for a couple days of float'n and camping on the upper c this coming weekend and need advice on camping spots. There will be three couples and six kids (5-10 yrs old) between us and we could set up a tent or two on thursday if necessary to get a nice spot. An open area on the river (with three teenage swiftwater rescue certified baby-sitters) would be perfect.

Thanks for any advice you might have.

There is some camping above yarmony, but most of it can be driven into. After Yarmony canyon directly on the left is island camp, which is great. Just below island on the left are a few marked camps called the benches, I think there are four of them, and they are all great. Just past benches on river right is lone tree camp, which is a big open grassy area on the river. It is very nice but has no shade. There are many other sites out there but these are the good ones that come to mind.
