Plenty of it. 3 miles down from cisco (takeout) river right there is a great wash camp, sand and rocks. The river makes a right turn and there it is. Then on the Daily section Dewey to BLM ramp there are plenty of options. Onion creek is the best. Then you run the Daily, after that there are a few options river right. And then after the town ramp you will be all alone until potash.

I did Cisco (Fish Ford) to Take Out Beach last summer. We did it in 3 days and had a great time. There are no rapids until the Moab Daily on the 3rd day. We camped the first night on a island at the Dolores - Colorado confluence. Day 2, we camped at Onion Creek (I think #3). It was a good spot, but I think #1 and #2 are the better sites. If you want to get in the water and float the current, 1 and 2 are the spots. If you are looking for fishing and privacy, 3 is the spot. This float is absolutely gorgeous. You have views of Fisher Tower for 1.5 days. If you want a book that maps out the float pretty well, search for "Belknap's Waterproof Canyonlands River Guide-All New Color Edition [Paperback]". For shuttles, call They are pretty flexible and very reliable. Have fun and bring shade!!!!

The island below the confluence of the Dolores and Colorado was muddy at 30,000. We were afraid it would be swamped if we considered it during a rainstorm Memorial weekend. We chose BLM land before Dewey Bridge. Right (left) at the gauge station. Pit toilets within walking distance.

Cisco to Dewey Bridge camping

Camping is a bit sketchy on the section between Cisco boat ramp and Dewey Bridge. Not saying there are no spots, it is just not that stellar for camping and depending on flow level there may not be any beach pull-outs.
