This section is obviously very scenic. There are day trips you can take through the different areas, but the entire stretch is possible. Official campsites are non-existent, but there are a few islands and sandbars you can go on.
The water level was lower than I've seen personally in my handful of trips. Dayton's USGS gauge reading was at about 6.5 feet. Flow was at 1500, up from the average of 700 CFPS. Not sure I believe the averages, but the readings are what they are. There were plenty of rocks and boulders I've not quite seen on other trips, and I've gone in a dry October before.
