I'd like to take the family tent camping and boating at the Allegheny National Forest. I live about 3 1/2 hours away so all my planning is in the internet. Does anyone have advice where to go? We would like to camp 2 or 3 nights and run the pontoon boat around during the day. We pull the kids on the tube, but no waterskiing. We'd also like to do a little fishing. It's a big place with lots of info on it, but I'd like a little insider advice if you can spare it!!
We'd be going in late June or July. I also have the option of going during the week if the crowds are too unbearable.
Kinzua has excellent Boat in only campgrounds, as well as lakefront drive in campgrounds with mooring. ALthough the lake gets some traffic, it would be a great lake for a pontoon boat. if you can swing a "during the week trip" I would recommend it.

Here is another twist you guys may be able to help with...
Do you know of any cabins/cottages/motels that are on the water or very close? I'm thinking something along the lines of some of the Canada/NY fishing lodges I've been too.
