Good luck with your trip

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.
I still have not tried hammock tents. People love them and say they sleep great, but I can't conceive they would be restful. However, what they do well is set up where there is no site. You don't need particularly level, dry, or clear ground to be able to set one up. I really try to not camp where I am not supposed to. But, when there is nothing and you need to get off the river, I am not above unobtrusively commando camping. I leave no trace and I leave early in the morning. I think a hammock tent can be tucked into more unobtrusive spots than a traditional tent, so you might want to give that a try.
I recall reading accounts on this site from others who have made the Suzq trip. The archives are limited on this site, but maybe the OPs will see this.
