Best access points New Castle to Silt?

Ran this many, many years ago, taking our 3 year old grandson for the first time...any recent beta for put ins and take outs? Last info I have is from 2013.
Thanks!

there's a ramp in New Castle south side of river, same one thats been there forever. Silt has improved theirs but it is in the same place, river left before the bridge. Those are your only options. Hope this helps.

What about the truck parking area off I-70 eastbound? Is that on that stretch? Tibbits Landing is the name, I think...

Yep, there is a primitive ramp there, I've used it the last couple of weekends. Mile marker 108 I think. You can only access this from I-70 eastbound. I know this area as Dinosaur, just downstream from the Dinosaur hole.

There is a long, steep, concrete ramp at South Canyon, Exit 111.
