Nearby the Murhpy/Middle/Bennett Lakes area is the Silver Lakes Wilderness. Definitely some good spots back there on the Northville-Placid Trail. It's early enough in the season that you shouldn't need to worry about too many through hikers on the NPT yet.

If you can spot a second car or get a ride, the first section of the NPT itself in the Silver Lakes Wilderness is the prefect length for a 3 day trip.

If you're willing to go a little bit further north, either the West Canada Lakes or the Siamese Ponds Wilderness areas are great destinations with secluded camping. The West Canada Lakes is a little bit more remote than the Siamese Ponds, but both are great places to explore. Note that some of the dirt roads that access the trailheads in the WCL aren't yet open for the summer.
