The Alley Spring camp ground seems that it would be compatible for you. It's nice and flat with accessible restrooms, etc. You can park near the 'take out' gravel bar and wade a bit in that area. I don't know if there are any great fishing spots that you will be able to get to, but at the very least it's an enjoyable spot that is easily accessible. I am not familiar with any other camp grounds in the area, so there may be other good options out there as well. Good luck to ya!

I don't think any of the other public campgrounds have as many amenities as Alley Spring, though perhaps a couple of the big private campgrounds would work for you. Of course, the water adjacent to the campground at Alley gets pounded, but I have hooked a couple of big smallmouth right in the campground (including one right in front of the canoe take-out) in the past, so you might do okay. Most of it is easy wading when the water is down.
