Ok, I'll play nice, I love Ledges, Upper ledges is nice too. It gives you a nice setup to hike Havasu the next day.

Day 1 Lee's Ferry: (private trip to commercial TL) Hey where you planning to camp tonight?
(Commercial TL to private) Bass Camp!

*don't mean to rattle anyone's cage, I've just heard it has happened...not my program... Privates are awesome! As long as they camp where they say, and do not split their trip to grab good camps. (it happens alot)

I think all the camps can be good camps. Especially ones that I haven't been to yet. I am going with a group early March, so maybe see you there!

Mmmmm . . . the makings of an unecessary controversy here . . .

ALL camps in the Grand Canyon are good. That's the way you should approach it. I.e., with an OPEN MIND, launch at Lee's Ferry and, while there, ask around about who plans to camp where, giving due regard to commercial guides who are ON A SCHEDULE (there is no reason for animosity between private and commercial as to camps, and most commercial guides are also private boaters) and, as you travel down river, TAKE IN THE WONDER AND AWESOMENESS OF THE PLACE and wherever you camp each night, IT WILL BE THE BEST. My point? If you put too many expectations on the trip and too much emphasis on a "this is my camp" attitude, you will surely miss out! Go with the flow! It is GEORGIOUS EVERYWHERE down there!
