Found ourselves with some extra time on our hands due to other vacations (by plane) being cancelled/postponed. We've always been intrigued by the Snake from Jackson Lake Dam down to Alpine Canyon, but I'm having a shockingly hard time finding any trip reports or info on this (other than commercial websites promoting 2-hour scenic floats). So, any information you all can share? It sounds like it's pretty braided but fairly easy to navigate. Any info on campsites? Ideal flows for a 14' raft loaded for a multi-day trip? Typical time/mileage per day? General feedback? It looks stunning, but given the lack of trip reports I'm wondering if maybe it's not as enticing as it sounds. Thank you for anything you can share.

Its primarily braided class II with the main hazard being a significant amount of wood in places. The most difficult stretch is between Deadman's Bar to Moose. Currently GTNP is not allowing boating, although that will hopefully change soon. Even then, there is no camping in the river corridor within the park. Downstream of the park, there are a few BLM parcels where you could camp but they are not necessarily easy to find.
