Dewey to Moab takeout

Anyone have info on this run for the end of March, rapids, crowds, shuttle?

Looks like the flows are usually around 4,000.

We'll be breaking in our new Mini Max, R2 self support.

From the other posts looks like Onion Creek is the place to camp.

I did Professor Valley to Moab the same time last year. Easy flows, easy camping, and easy car shuttle. Not hard to hitchhike this one.

That's good to hear on the hitchhike because the shuttle service I called wanted $100.

Onion Creek is the daily put-in, camp there if you want company. Whether you do or don't, you'll have it by 10 AM following morning... Might want to think about camping river right instead, lots of drainages that lead up into backside of Arches (Bull Canyon, other sandbars likely out in 2 weeks...). It is still COLD but you can time sunshine for max exposure as you float down into Castle Valley.

No... daily put-in is Hittle Bottom. Onion Creek has great big beach camping on river right a few miles into the daily.

The big beach river right is what we were planning on.

Brain fart - corrected: Hittle Bottom is most used daily putin, on river left. Onion Creek on right, and a decent camp with morning sun.

What is camping like on this stretch? Is it just the campgrounds? Or are there sites or make your own?

We have backed our trailor in at Onion Creek and off loaded the boat. There is a small boat ramp in the willows that a lot of the rafting companies use too for a slightly smaller trip. We run this a lot and have use the gravel boat ramp at Onion Creek several times from March threw Oct.
