Gates of Lodore campsite recs?

What are the best campsites to stay in to split the trip up evenly????
Obviously want to stay in nice camps as well. I have never run this section before and want to make the best of the trip. I need to send in paperwork soon,

Pot Creek, Wild Mountain/Limestone, Jones Hole 3/4 (preferably 3).

Pot Creek and Jones both have cool hikes (so does Limestone, if I remember correctly). Jones 2 is usually super muddy, Jones 1 has a steep bank, 3 is the best but is popular.

Wow stuntsheriff! You think compromise is a good site? I think it is just that, a compromise when you can't get a site at Jones hole. I second Pot creek, Limestone, and Jones 1.

Jones hole sucks, always tons of people and random hikers walking down from the road. No thanks.

Pot creek 1&2 are both good, rippling brook 1&2 are also good.

I forget the name but the camp right when you come out of the canyon and enter rainbow park looked good, that might be sea cliffs?

Compromise is one of the few Grand Canyon style camps in dinosaur....pull in, park, set up the kitchen in front of the's one of my favs...Jones Hole is over rated as a camp site(s)......haven't been to the new camp in the middle of Whirlpool but I've seen it before they designated it I guess last looks pretty sweet as well....
