Two years ago when we did that section we had permission to use it (This comes from Morgan at Winding Waters) and the beta was that the owner had decided to allow rafters to camp. We did so with no issues there (aside from cow poop). Though there isn't any good place to set up a groover...aside from the kitchen.
We haven't had any issues with locals or anything on that section, but I suppose YMMV. We were also there in April with Snow/Hail/Rain pounding us. Maybe they felt sorry for us.
Sure seem to be a lot of folks waving from vehicles once the road meets back up with the river after the W&S section.
