We live in Middletown and usually fish in the SouthWest Region. We recently adopted 4 children from Texas and we had 2 children before that giving us 6 (4 boys). I have told them that I would take them on a camping/fishing trip this Spring and thought the AEP area would be a perfect weekend trip. I have never been there and could use lots of advice. I was thinking of a weekend in April or May. We have already bought 2 tents to use for camping and have other camping gear. Here are my questions: When would be the best time to go? Where would be the best place to camp with kids (ages 8 - 13)? I would prefer someplace quiet and a little secluded close to fishing spots. This will be our first fishing trip and I would really like to make it a good one. We would be bank fishing (I have a small boat but it's only big enough for 3-4 people. If my wife and the girls come along we would need showers and good restrooms as well. Any advice on making this a great trip would be greatly apreciated. I would like to do trips like this a regular thing going to different places and it will all hinge on this trip being successful.
