Yes, but be cautious as you approach the water, it gets to be very deep sand for the last 50-100 ft or so. Turn around in the big flat by the pumping station if you have concern. Also, I would suggest Kokopelli Rafting for shuttle. They had a guide who was in need of work help us out "under the table". I think we gave him $40-50 and a couple buds.
I would not suggest leaving a vehicle at Buckman. Last trip we camped there and only saw 1 suburban full of homies come through with music blasting and spinning donuts.... the security patrol that we spoke with in the morning said we were lucky that's all we saw, they had just finished filling the bullet holes in the pump station building...
