I'm planning a camping/float trip on the current.....i was wondering what cedar grove was like.....i prefer to have some distance between campsites....and to be somewhat secluded...and does it have access to the river, i.e swimming and fishing?...any info would be appreciated....thanks

These are rustic camp sites. There is space between most campsites (and woods for some of them) where you aren't neck and neck with someone else. These are pay and first come, first serve sites ($5 per night). The ranger will pick up the dues. Most sites are riverside. If at all possible, avoid Saturdays and Saturday nights. During the summer, the upper Current is pretty busy (above Pulltite). However, not as busy as past years. Probably due to ecomomics (ie. gas prices, etc.). If you REALLY want to enjoy the river and camping in the Summer, then try to do so any day except Saturday and Saturday nights. Just my 2 cents.
If one REALLY wants solitude, then the BEST BET is to park your car at either Akers, Pulltite or Round Spring; have an outfitter load up your stuff in the bus (ie. tent, etc.) along with a canoe and have them take you upstream. Then, float down to a nice gravel bar and set-up camp. This is the BEST way to go in my mind. Total solitude from anyone.
