Could anyone with info include the Stillwater section from Green River down? I'm doing a trip there this June.

I did it in march last year-camp situation was a little renegade. There was only two of us so we weren't in need of a huge space,that helped. I remember camping on a couple sandbars and a nice big beach on the end of the bowknot bend,saw a sick green meteor there! Also,if your launching from Green River state park(above that other ranch put-in) there was a really nice campspot by Dellenbaugh Butte,on river left(i don't think you can see the butte from the campspot or river so just be aware on your map) that we stayed at.

The tammies are definitely dead. I wonder what that beatle is gonna do now, probably morph into some psycho fish that swims up your cracks. They should burn it.

I paddled this in late October. I assure you the tamarisk are alive and thriving. The beetles have not made it to this area yet. Large sites are hard to come by. A machete could be very handy. Here are a few suggestions:

- There is a small sandbar right at the mouth of Trin-Alcove or you could carry (not fun) up to the base of the cliff above.

- About 100 yrds below the River Register on river left.

- On river right at the start of the hike to The Loop overlook is one of the best large sites.

- There is a very nice island beach at ~ mile 61.5

I was on the Green in Deso and the Colorado near Maob in October. All of the Tammies I saw were green. The beatles munch down in the summer and then go into hibernation by September giving the Tammies a chance to green up again in September and October. This cycle might eventually kill off most of the Tammies but you will probably have to wait 10 or 20 years to start seeing new campsites appear.
