Are you going midweek or on a weekend? Midweek, you can pretty much have your pick. Weekends, its going to be tough to find a waterside campsite that is 2 or less miles in that is unoccupied.

Copperas Pond and Copper Kiln Pond near Wilmington are both short hikes; each has a lean-to. Several of the ponds in the St. Regis Canoe areas have trails and can be reached by foot. The lean-to's on Taylor Pond can be reached by foot. The campground is closed but I'm sure it is OK to still use the lean-to's. I think there are also campsites on Taylor Pond.
