camping/fishing NEPA

Ok, so my buddy and I decided we're gonna take a camping trip this summer without the wives and kids, however, neither of us knows anywhere that fits our requirements.

We are looking for a place, not a campground, near a body of water that we can pitch two tents, have a small cook fire, and drink/shoot the breeze at night, and possibly fish during the day. We really do not want a campground, or place where tons of people are going to camping near us. Anyone have any suggestions? Feel free to PM me if you don't want the spot to be public knowledge.

Even better if there is enough space for me to set up my archery target and get some practice in when we're not fishing or drinking. Neither one of us mind if there is hiking involved to get to the spot, we're both outdoors oriented anyway.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

Re: camping/fishing NEPA

You can camp along the Delaware river in certain spots, it's better with a canoe.
It is said that there is trout in the stream that runs along a portion of the thunder swamp trail system. You can camp anywhere along the trail. Stillwater "lake" is another option along a portion of the thunder swamp trail, I don't know how the fishing is though.
Not sure if you can camp overnight but Bruce lake (near promised land) sounds like it would meet your requirements. If overnight camping is aloud it would be a good spot because it's a couple mile walk and I doubt too many people will be back there.

You can primitve camp in state forests following there rules.
Look at a state forest map in the area you want to be and look for a trail that runs close to a body of water.

Here are a couples links to check out.
