I have floated and camped from the liverpool area down to City Island. There are some great spots on the islands for camping down there. Call Mary at Blue Mountain Outfitters and they will direct you to some nice camping spots and provide a shuttle if it is just you and your daughter. If someone plans a group float/camp, I would be happy to lend your daughter a HH or CC LEX. My son is 12 and uses a CC LEX with great results. Kayaking and hammock camping are 2 of my 3 favorite things to do(not counting family). Add smallie fishing and I am in heaven.
