San Juan Long Row Out; Doable?

Steer Gulch is a great campsite when there is no mosquitos. We stayed there last May. No issues. Has a great cot site under an alcove straight up from the boat parking.

Gremlin, the bank into Steer Gulch was a mud flat that required hauling gear at least 30 - 40 feet through thick mud. Maybe as much work as rowing out. Keep in mind this was at 850-880 cfs. Levels are going up so this may not be a problem at higher levels. Trimble right now is a debris/rubble field with really no place to set up.

You can do it. You will want to get packed up as much as possible the night before and eat breakfast on the river. Prepare to have a long day of rowing and pray for merciful wind.

We camped here last week. No bugs and very well protected from overnight breezes. Tie boat to bank at 1,100 cfs (no mud slog). Not the prime campsite, but there are a lot worse.
