How is the camping and ride - C&O Canal Path N. of Harpers Ferry?

My wife and my 6 and 4 year old boys are going to take an overnight on the C&O trail. Looks like there are two or three campsites in the first 20 miles (mile 60-80 is where we'll be)

Our rig is going to be xtracycle+topeak kid seat+front panniers and a 7 speed cruiser tandem with my wife and our elder son + front basket, rear rack, and a rack top bag w/integrated fold out mini panniers. If we can't get everything loaded on those bikes, we'll pull a trailer as well.

Anyone done this section? Any advice?
