My family and I were hoping to drive down from Ontario & do some car camping in the NY & Penn States and were wondering if there were any excellent information sites that could be recommended. We usually car camp as a family with kids in tow, packing it all into a backpack isn't reality. Or if anyone knows of a great camp that is semi-not too busy, has some activities near for 14 yr olds and offers good park staff service, that would be great. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

The Adirondacks in Eastern NY have lots of good car camping as does the Lake Champlain area to their East. I can't recommend specific spots but I found lots of info online when I was looking into meeting some NY relatives there earlier this year.  I can recommend a great ice cream stand in Cranberry Lake though!
