Generally speaking most all of the camps we visited on our many annual RHT trip were in pretty good shape. That said, there are a few that are clearly being loved to death. It goes without saying that Black Rocks are pretty degraded. Beaches are seriously eroded, and the complete infestation by ants (due to infestation of humans with food and sugary drinks) have become a bummer of a stay at an otherwise amazing camp. Take care of your camp folks, it impacts more than just the quality of your stay.

that said, what is the BLMs approach to rehabbing sites that are looking pretty long in the tooth? Would there ever be a “experimental flow” for rebuilding beaches?

The only thing I can think of is closing sites for a season to let them recover from use. maybe BR could have blocks of sites closed for a season each over a span of years.

"Experimental flows" aren't really something that'll happen due to the watershed hydrology and upstream dams. About the only thing that might do it would be another 1983-type season, and I don't know if those flows even inundated the campsites down there.
