Deso/Gray kids trip

Interested in any tips on best kid friendly campsites and side trips you may have experienced in Deso/Gray. Three 11 year olds, one 16 year old, one 14 year old and one 9 year old. Going in early June.

My 4 year old loved finding this "secret note" under a rock at Upper Wire Fence camp! 3 Canyon is also a favorite!

All the camps I've seen are fairly isolated so you don't need to worry about rowdy neighbors.

Hike up to the moon shiners hide-out (River left) in Firewater Canyon, across from Cedar Ridge. Watch out for poision ivy at the spring though.

Opposite Mcpherson Ranch, Stay river right after Joe Hutch Rapids. Nice beach, swim area, plenty of shade
