There is something called the Susq. River Trail that includes camp sites for part of your trip. I suggest you call Blue Mountain Outfitters in Marysville, Pa and ask them about the trail. I'm pretty sure you can buy a map of it from BMO.
Stealth camp and no fires|

I've traveled a few places in somewhat civilized areas and got by with following the simple practice of not pulling into shore until dusk and NEVER building a fire or using lights to give away my presence. I read the trip report that you linked to your post. It sounds like these guys traveled in a similar manner and did just fine. fore sure, planning ahead so that you can be certain of where you can and cannot camp is a good idea, but "things happen" and you may need to pull in some where.

I would love to do the upper section of that river, from Cooperstown perhaps to Binghamton. if it weren't for my son's graduation that week I would offer to join you. Good luck!
