I’m organizing the logistics for an Upper Salt excursion for a dozen boaters from Oregon launching next month. I believe I understand the shuttle and WMAT permit options but still have a few questions.
We’re planning to arrive at the put-in the afternoon / evening prior to launching. Are there any challenges with finding room to camp at Mule Hoof and rigging the night before launch?
Which camps would you recommend for a layover (we’re planning seven days)?
Any side attractions / hikes not mentioned in the readily available guides?
Did the big January flush make any of the mapped camps unusable / undesireable?
Is there a SCAT machine anywhere near the take-out? If not, what are the typical disposal options?
All advice is welcome on or off-board.
