Beaver 2 does not have a lot that would be fun for kids, but is a good campsite. BLM has marked the sites really well, so just start looking for Beaver 1 across from and after you go past Rattlesnake. I stopped there last weekend when it was half of 30k, and there could be some extra foliage to park in at higher water, but should otherwise be good. Easy to find if the sign is not under water. Good shade and nice main campsite.
I am trying to remember exactly which camp is BR7, but if I have it right it should have an eddy, even at high flow, and some rocks to play around. Not a ton of shade though, so plan to bring some along. BR area gets a lot of whirlpools and really weird water at high levels. I would not worry in a raft, but be very careful if anyone (especially kids) wants to play in the water.
