Thanks for all the info!!! Sounds like I got a good excuse to build a rack for the Subaru for a ten foot raft!! Set up at camp throw the cooler in the frame at the launch and get out of dodge!!!!

Honestly, the best plan is to find a flatbed trailer to rent, drive out there with an mostly empty trailer and a rolled raft, then get your raft rigged at the campground the night before. Then roll down to the ramp and push off whenever you want to launch.

A section in June is going to be a floatilla- While B will be quite a bit different experience. a few driftboats- but you should have a much better experience. Depending on flow- you could definitely do the A into B in the first day- set up camp, and finish out day 2 on the B. There is no road access- aside from the ramps. Road to the B takeout is pretty good quality gravel- but lots of gas trucks to dodge. It's a pretty long shuttle from Dutch John area to the B takeout. Have fun! It's a gorgeous place!

At the "A" section boat ramp there is no check out just launch and go. I go down rigged at 7am to launch and have a fair amount of time to myself before it gets crowded most commercial trips arrive at 7:30 to 8:00, launch 8:30 to 9:30. If possible show up rigged and have the grand parents drop you at 7am. If the flows are above 1200 consider doing "C" section also and you will be alone most of the time. you can apply for a special permit to take out at The Gates of Lodore put in ramp. There are eagles, moose, elk, deer and really big fish, although not many on c.

if you are too slow at the Flaming Gorge put in I have seen the ranger send people to the back of the line.

I take my grand kids and they love the trip. If you do the A section buy the most powerful water guns you can find for self defense and to surprise the "well behaved" Boy Scouts. is online now   Reply With Quote

We'll be there the weekend after you. We have a big group campout going June 12-15. Some folks want to float & fish section A one of those days. I'm bringing my mini-cat. We'll also be doing some kayak touring on Flaming Gorge as well. Please post a trip report about section B. It's on my list, and I'd love to hear about the camps, fishing, take-out, and shuttle. Have a great time.
