Main Salmon Camps

So we are loading up the truck and heading to Idaho to float the Main Salmon in late July. It will be my first trip down and I was hoping for some insight on great camps for a group of about 12. We are planning on 6 days from Corn creek to Carey creek. Is a layover possible in that amount of time? Suggestions please...

You can only layover in non-reserve camps. 6 days/5 nights from Corn Creek to Carey Creek would be a bit tight for a layover. It would require some higher mileage days. We always do either an 8 day/7night trip with a group of 10 or less (two layovers), or 7 days/6 nights with a group over 10 (one layover).
I'll PM you more camp and river info. The main Salmon is my favorite trip, and I've done it about 15 times in the last ten years.

We just took off the MS. Don't reserve Mackay Bar Bridge camp - we did, but after looking at it, floated on by. It's accessible by cars and had a distinctly industrial feel.

Also, jet boat traffic seems quite a bit heavier than in past years.
