Grab some ADK guidebooks or Bill Ingersol's "Discover" series and read about the various areas of the park. You can pick places near your location, areas with ponds/lakes or areas of deep forest, whatever. ADK used to/still does ? publsih the ADK Sampler II by Bruce Wadsworth. If it's out of print, you can probably find it on amazon, ebay/ Bruce has a great gear checklist in the book.

Like you said, certain areas will be packed with people so take a tent. a stove is highly recommended as firewood is non-existant in most places. The High Peaks and Pharaoh Lake areas are the most used in the park and will be crowed, but you may find a secluded spot even in these locations on a holiday w/e; you don't never know!
