Escalante- Whitewater Float

Is the Escalante- Whitewater section of the Gunnison still an appropriate 2 day float for little kids (3 & 6yrs old) at higher flows? Campsites still exposed?
Is there a shuttle company in that area?

This should be no problem at higher water for an intermediate, or higher level, oarsman; and I would only suggest having good support people with you for the kids in case of some odd event of a mishap. The campsite(s) at Dominquez Canyon should still be very exposed, although the docking area might be a little tricky since I believe it is on a strong side bend of the river. This is a great campsite and provides unbelievable access to some amazing side hikes into on "oasis". American Spirit, out of Grand Junction, may be able to meet your shuttle needs: (970) 523-7662. Have a great trip!
