What you are trying to do is possible but I am not sure you will get the best out of the area. It is a long and hot hike that if you are not in excellent shape will give you aches, pains and often blisters. It is not for the faint at heart to hike down or back. You can take the helicopter out but get in line and wait as you will probably be waiting for 3-5 hours. Though they say first come first server for the heli they don't tell you that the locals go before you no matter when they got there or you got there! Once down at the campsite it is another 4 miles to Beaver falls and again is not for the faint at heart or one who does not like heights. To get to beaver falls you will hike down ladder that are far from OSHA approved, walk through water ankle deep, etc. The minimum I would consider to do the area right is 2 nights and 3 days. The bathrooms are pit toilets and the only running water is the potable water spring known as Fern Spring which is at the entrance to where the camping is. This is a VERY remote area so don't plan on much service other than what the others have mentioned. There are no electrical services except at the village which is 2 miles from the camp area. Also there are raccoons in the camp area so you will need to bring some light rope to hang your pack/food from a tree! Good luck and have fun. It is absolutely gorgeous there and well worth the hike!
