Overnight Hike - Around 6 Miles RT (Southern Region)

Looking to do a nice overnight hike (this weekend 7/27/2013) with a round trip of around 6 - 8 miles (3 - 4 miles in). There doesn't need to be any Lean-To's, however primitive camping sites would be nice. Near water would be nice as well.

Was looking at Benson to Silver Lake (7.5 miles) but that is a little farther then I would like to hike, and I was also thinking Jockey Bush but that is a little too short of a hike.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, I am looking up that info now. I don't have any interest in hiking to the top of the falls, just hanging out by the lake would be what I was looking for.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

First post! Siamese ponds off of Rt. 8 is my go to for a spontaneous night in the woods. There is a lean-to at the bridge or take it all the way to the pond. There are a few sites around the waters edge. Easy going the whole way.
