California Creeks - Stanislaus River below Camp 9

Dublin Core

Title

California Creeks - Stanislaus River below Camp 9

Description

Formerly called the upper Stanislaus, now the drowned Camp9 run, at one time this was acknowledged as the best intermediate run in California. People who knew the river before it was inundated by New Melones reservoir might feel overly depressed seeing it again, but for the rest of us, this run is well worth doing after a string of drought years. Many of the class II and class III rapids are totally unique, and beautiful limestone cliffs and forested hillsides are visible above the reservoir's bathtub ring. Although the length is only 9 miles, it goes slowly, so allocate an entire day.
