Moab Daily as an Overnighter

Any beta on ensuring a riverside (river right) camp on the Moab Daily section on a Saturday night? I'm hoping for White's Rapid Camp.

There is no way to ensure a camp. They are first come/ first served. Hell, it's not unheard of for a group to send down a member of their group several days early to hold down one of the Onion Creek camps for the weekend. Of course, I do not condone such greedy behavior.

That being said, I don't think that the White's camp is quite as sought after as the Onion Creek camps. Maybe you'll be able to get it.

Thanks for the beta, mikepart! Yeah, I'm not keen on sending people ahead. We have a group of 18 for a 40th B-day party, so it would be a shame to not get a camp. Not the end of the world though. Thanks for the thoughts about Whites!!

I ran the Daily for 10 years with co-workers every June on a Friday and Saturday and only saw people camping at Onion Creek a couple of times at mid afternoon. That may have changed. I wouldn't worry about somebody grabbing the spot as much as I would worry about there being a family there that didn't appreciate your 40th birthday party. It's a river trip, but nobody wants to be a jerk to the neighbors.

Camped there last Saturday night Sept 24th, set up camp around 3pm without problems. It seemed these was plenty of room for everybody.
