Rock Ledge just bellow Dewey is a nice site. It is a scamper up the hill but has many tent sites.... great rock for kids to jump off of! (At least at high flow)

Thanks for all the suggestions, I might focus on some dispersed areas north of town like Willow Springs dispersed or perhaps this Courthouse area (which I am not familiar with).

An hour drive in the morning through Moab would be just fine.

I have had success at Willow Springs but that has always been rolling in on a Thursday or early Friday, Saturday night might be tough depending on which weekend.

Oct 4-6 is outerbike weekend which brings a bunch of people into town.

That sand bar across from the P. I might be your best bet on a Saturday night, Mark, considering how Moab area gets. Putting in at Mineral is definitely where I would rather float through, myself, if it works out for your plans.
If I i need to camp along the river corridor, I normally go for Dewey, some people pass it trying to get closer to town, so a better chance of finding a spot, and something about it has always given me good vibes.
Have yet to be hassled at P.a. As long as I get up early.
Have a great trip! I’m jealous, cataract is very near and dear to my heart, really wish I was going this year!!

We were just there two weeks ago. Easy to go across the river to the nice big sand bar. No motor needed.
