I'm looking to do the Devils for the first time next spring and wanted some recommendations from those that have experienced it before ... gear to bring, not bring, ideal put-in/takeout, etc. The biggest thing I'm struggling with is do I risk damage to my own kayak or just rent there? I've read some horror stories ...

Matty,

I just posted a review of our April trip to the Devils here.

I cannot stress this enough: Rent your boat!! You are going to be happy you did once you run / drag rapids and see rocks with streaks the same color as your yak littering the trail behind you ;-)

I am happy to answer questions and if you take a look @ the thread I posted there is a user named Brady S that has a lot of information on where to camp and the rules of the river.
