Camping on Westwater

Anyone camped below Cottonwood creek on westwater? River office says you can camp without an overnight permit, but it has to be between cottonwood and cisco landing.

There are a few spots. They tend to get messed up, as they are accessible by 4x4 as well.

Cottonwood Creek? Is that the big rock and amphitheater on river right about a mile before the takeout?

I camped on the top of the island right before cisco and noone said anything to me. Wasn't too bad... Also fishermans beach on the left but you have to scramble up the bank

You can camp below the island where the no motorized upstream traffic sign is on river left.

Thanks for the info, and yes, Cottonwood is about 1 mile above Cisco.
