Limited public access, put-in and take-out only. All the land around the take-out (spring creek rd) is private, but at the put-in you can hike down a ways to fish.
I don't think camping is allowed(?). Especially at the put-in, and im pretty sure everything below the canyon is private land, in fact the private land starts before the canyon. I'm sure you can get away with some low-key camping, but be careful.
The put-in is at the bottom of the dam and has a gate that is only open 8am-8pm. Wave to the guard! Don't leave your car down there past 8 or you'll get a hefty fine. Put-in is definitely class V like melted ice said. Bring a long rope to make things easier.
Take out is still there. Reached near record flows this summer and still going pretty good. Beautiful short stretch of easy class 3 read and run. Enjoy!
