Which Jones hole camp spot has the best low water access. I usually take #2 and regret it later on after walking up that swampy bank.

2k is actually a pretty good flow for lodore and whirlpool canyon. low water is <1000 up there, and you gotta be careful at jones or else you'll break an ankle on the rocks.

As nice as #2 is, I won't stay there anymore due to the probability of slipping and getting hurt on that minefield of moss covered rocks. I don't care for the long row out the next day either. Other than that, it's wonderful!

One and two are a pain for landing and setting up camp when there are lower flows. 2000cfs is going to be a welcome upgrade from the 700cfs we had when we made the first run of the year through Lodore in April. We have a Sept 3rd launch!!!!!
Be safe out there....

I always stay at the one I am assigned by the ranger:(, but 3 is my favorite at any water level. This year all the skunks agreed to stay at 2 and 4 making 3 even more desirable..;)
