river perfect but beware if you own personal equipment the private campgrounds and canoe outfitters will refuse your business and try to make your life rough

I have floated here many times. Go in the winter. Summer months are crowded there are a lot of canoe outfitters here. They can help you plan your trip.

River has best class I & II water in the state. primitive camping allowed but sand bars and beaches are far and few between. Camp early or you might get caught canoeing after dark.

Nice river. Good Class I & II water. I caught the water just after a spring rain and was able to put in at 76 hiway, a rarity. Great float. Very view sand bars. Primitive camping opportunities are slim, so choose early or you will be kayaking in the dark.
