If you request an extra night on the river it will be a 5 night. It's a great idea but no guarantee- it will depend on availability. I would suggest trying to get 4 nights above the confluence if possible. Also get to the put in at Deerlodge the day before you launch and rig and ready to get on the river in the morning as this is one of your permit days-no need to waste this time at the put in when you could be on the river. Add in your night at
Deerlodge and you have a 6 night. Have fun... the Yampa will not dissapoint.

Don't forget to hike Jones Hole there is a water fall on a side stream to Jones Creek. Were you can have some one block the flow by sitting the Chanel above the fall and have a willing participant get blasted with a deluge of fresh water below. Very refreshing.

Watch out for dry bag eating ground squirrels!

Didn't have to stay there but I wasn't too impressed with the warm springs camp. Have had skunks visit at jones hole before.

+1 for the jones hole camps and hiking up to the waterfall. There is a good hike up sand canyon(last canyon on your left before the confluence). Have to scramble up 3 pitches and then there is a narrow canyon to climb.

I love jones 3 & 4. While there may be skunks, they are just looking for food. We've never been sprayed. Just put food away well and garbage high. Also, coolest petroglyphs I've ever seen are at echo park. They are above whispering cave and the first set of pictographs. About a mile walk up the access road, on the right. Well worth your time.

Ok, so I'll try my luck w an extra day request above the confluence, but will also request an extra day on the Green as a back-up plan. Any suggestions for two camps between the confluence and Split Mountain?
