Default Re: Fly in and camp out destinations?

There is no camping along the Roaring Fork per say. Up above Aspen hwy 82 enters into White River National Forest and there are campgrounds there, but you would need a car to get back where the good fishing is. Also, I think there are campgrounds around Ruedi Reservoir (above the tailwater Frying Pan) and if you head south out of Carbondale hwy 133 runs along the Crystal River and will eventually enter into the White River National Forest and there are campgrounds. Casper, WY has an airfield and if you rented a car you could access one of the many public access points along the North Platte as the river follows hwy 220 and there is camping allowed at Grey Reef. Pinedale, WY has a runway (don't know about scheduled air service), you would need a rental car, but 10 miles north of town is the Warren Bridge, if you turn onto the gravel road it travels into BLM land and they have 10-12 campgrounds right along the Upper Green River. You could fly into Salt Lake and rent a car and drive over to Dutch John, UT. There are lots of campgrounds in the area and Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir has a walking tail all the way from the dam to the first takeout, 7 miles at Little Hole. Excellent fishing opportunities along that stretch, but no camping along the river. Below little hole there are campgrounds along the river on a first come first serve basis, you sign up at Little Hole.
