Any Easy Rafting Near Green River, WY??

Just looking for a place to do a couple of day trips near Green River, WY with the family. We are looking for Class II at the most, and will be taking down a 18' cataraft, so a decent amount of water would be nice.

It would be great if it could have the following:

No Permits (hoping to do it next weekend)
10-15 mile range
Be near some camping (currently don't have our groover and firepan, so won't be able to do an overnight river trip or we would do Sections A,B&C on Green)
Be somewhat scenic, with some decent hiking options

If we can't find anything in Green River, we may be interested in the Snake in Jackson Hole. Any info on this would also be greatly appreciated.

Southfork of the Snake is a great weekend float. Class I-II, with no permit, and good camping. Blue ribbon fly fishing also if you're into that. This stretch is below Palisades Reservoir, Put-in at Conant, take-out at Byington. Good concrete boat ramps at both for easy launching & loading if you have a trailer. 25 miles with decent flow all the way. Southfork Outfitters is right at the put-in and they will shuttle your rig for about $40. You do need a Southfork User pass for parking, and you will need some sort of groover & firepan. You can probably get by with an oil change pan, and a bucket/gamma lid groover is easy to make.
