No, the center rock island is almost totally covered and there is a big pillow at it's head. You will need to work to stay river left of the island. Other than that it's just random suckholes that open up in the area.
I wouldn't even consider swimming there right now. All kinds of weird hydraulics that could suck down a swimmer, even with a big PFD.

You might want to rethink camping at BR.......heard they are all pretty flooded. The only site that would seem to be above water is Bull Canyon.
The good news is that you can now boat the Cottonwood campsites now.

Yes......DO NOT SWIM AT BLACK ROCK! My 16' foot boat didn't like the 4' whirl pools and its pushy! took me several attempt to get to BR 8 and 9.

From Loma to Westwater is a 5 hrs trip at this speed/flows... if you row, its 4 hours!!!

Good luck have fun,
