Main Salmon - Favorite camps and highlights??
We finally got lucky and got a Main Salmon Permit for late July. We will be going with 5 kids between 9 and 6 years old. All adults and children have been on rivers and we are all comfortable with the whitewater aspect.
None of us have done the Main however.
I can't seem to find a list of the reserved camp sites- is this published someplace?
I understand the system of reserving camps, are there particular sites that you would recommend that might be especially cool with kids- a creek close that would be fun to explore, rocks to jump off (ideally into the river, vs. onto other rocks), a great surf wave close (of course levels change), rapids that could be swam close by?
Smaller non reserved camps that we should not overlook if they are available? We will have 15 people.
We will of course stop at the hot springs and the petroglyphs... With kids, or in general anything in particular that you would say to check out? We have several books and have a good idea of what is where. I am trying to highlight stuff that is especially cool, that we should not miss.
THANK YOU for your wisdom!
