Pumphouse Camping

I have heard and read that there are nice camp spots on the Pumphouse run for overnight camping. I am heading up on Sat. morning, but logistically it doesn't look like it is going to be a very early start. Also, I'm guessing it is going to be crowded this weekend. Does anyone know approximately how many camp spots there are before Rancho. Would you suggest I just grab the first vacant one I see? Is there an online site that details camping spots, not just the rapids? Any info is much appreciated. Thanks...

Upper Colorado is between Vail,Steamboat<The Roaring Fork and Denver. It is very crowded. Don't let that stop you from going. On your way to pumphouse,stop at radium. Get a campsite just in case. If you cant get a spot in the first few miles you can stay there. get up early and head for one of the sites down river, they are nice. then from the bridge down the population goes down. you can camp anywhere you like.
