I think all of the campsites are very nice in lodore canyon. I have not stayed in all of them. I think each has subtle pros and cons. Wade and Curtis has a bit af a bank and so does limestone, I think. Other things to consider are how you want your trip to flow. Do you want to run all the rapids in one day or break them into two days. The two pot creek camps and kolb will cut the rapids in half. Another thing is your last day out. You have to get to split mountain before the afternoon wind comes up. It is a lond way if you stay at the jones holes, stateline, seacliff. Not too bad if you are further down stream. How big is your group, and how well will your group be early risers. Should you have your last nite further down? Do you or anyone in your group care for fly fishing? If so, stay at jones for sure. It is a wonderful hike at jones as well. As some one else mentioned, you do not get to choose in full anyway, you just get to send in your wish list. It is a wonderful trip!
