Norwood Canyon Camping?

I'm trying to put together a overnighter, close to home for a few buddies that are in town visiting. I was thinking of squeezing a overnighter through Norwood Canyon and the ledges on the San Miguel, but I don't know if there is camping in Norwood Canyon.

If anyone has any beta on the section that would be much appreciated, and if anyone has another suggestion for an overnighter near Durango that would be great as well.

Hey Targos,
There are good numbered campsites in Norwood canyon. They start after the halfway point if you launch at Beaver, I'm guessing about 5 sites. I've camped at a couple and my favorite has been at the mouth of Horsefly creek on river right, can't remember the # on this one but it's not 1 or 2. Numbers are on the 45deg. cut off ends of 4x4 posts; not real obvious, but there. FWIW 700cfs on the Placerville gauge is about as low as I'd run this with my 14' cat. Have fun!
