Best Camping in Gunny Gorge

I have a 4 person, 2 boat trip the first weekend in June. We're going to spend 2 nights in the canyon and we have not done this stretch before. We're looking for some campsite suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Make sure you are prepared for extremely high flows. The projection is going to 11,000 starting next week. If you have never run this stretch make sure you know what that means. A lot of camps will not exist. At those flows, the trip will take about 2 hours. I'm not sure what the ramp down looks like or when it occurs, but be ready because it will be game on out there.

I have never run it above 4000, but a couple of years ago I ran the North Fork and met some people at the Pleasure Park who had just finished in the 8000 range. They looked shell shocked, and like they had been through the ringer. Probably one heck of a ride until the first swim...
If you catch it on the way down, around 3000 is a very nice boating level.
