Flaming Gorge to Lodore Put-in

Has anyone ever floated from the Flaming Gorge Dam to the Gates of Lodore Put-in? If so, how long can you stretch it out to - 3 nights? 4?

Whats the camping like along the river? I have heard that its mostly public land. Can anyone confirm?

You could make a 3 night trip out of it and the camping spots are pretty nice. 4 nights might be pushing it.

You have to hold a lodore permit,in order to use the lodore put-in/takeout. Right? There's another take-out upstream,I forget the name.

Or no permit for low use season?

Check out Green River Fishing | Trout Creek Flies | Green River Outfitters for camp & shuttle info. They would be a good resource for take-out options. No camping allowed in section A, established camps in section B that are either first come first serve by signing up at Little Hole, or some are reservable on, not sure about camping in section C. Dam to Browns Park is on my list of weekend trips to do. I've done Dam to Little Hole many times.

The trip can be done and is nice over 1,000 cfs. The Lodore Ranger Station, aka Dick Ranger Land will harrass you to make sure you have the free Brown's Park "Play Permit."

The rapids are pretty easy, the campsites are nice. You could skip Lodore by taking out at Crook Campground 10 miles upstream or so.

It's a 3 day trip, but with a layover at a sweet site it could be stretched. The fishing is awesome.
