Kayak Camping in Colorado

Where are some places in Colorado where I can either self support for a few days or just set up camp and kayak near the camp site? I would prefer not not have to by a permit.

What class water are you after. Upper Colorado has gore (4-5) followed by 60 miles of II with the occasional three.

You could run the length of the Ark, but from browns to the gorge(50+ miles) is pretty sleepy at present flows.
Car camping along the Poudre may be your best option for varying degrees of difficulty.

You can get ruby permits mid week, but not much for rapids.
