Cataract Canyon

Just got a permit for an October 6th launch. Sorry, but have plenty of people. Looking for feedback from people who have done the river at that time. Motor at the beginning and at the end? Any ideas welcome. any pitfalls to watch out for? Good and bad camping places? Getting off on the 10th.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.

4 days on Cat? motor for sure! Scout Big Drop 2 and 3, 1st isn't too bad if you go on the right side along the shore.

Just got off a 7 day trip without a motor and we all agreed next time we will bring one. Every boat that passed us asked "Got a motor". We got lucky and only had moderate winds on the last day of the row out across the res, 2 days 15 miles each with little or no current. The last good camps are just above Gypsum Canyon there is a small camp on the right just above Dark canyon in the tammys 10 people/ 3 to 4 tents max. I would recomend camping at Spanish Bottom or Brown Betty and hiking the Dolls House. Above the confluence there are lots of beaches and sandbars to camp. Plan your hikes and motor to camp and you can get alot done. Have fun.
