Camping is only allowed at locks or at official campgrounds, and it can be pretty far between locks. After Lockport, you can camp at Red Rocks Campground (primarily for RVs, but they have tent spots), and then at Macedon at lock 30. Reservations in advance are required for Green Lakes campground, then you can use locks 21, 20 and/or 15.
Be aware that not all of the locks have water or restrooms. When I did the route heading west last spring, we changed plans twice to avoid locks without services.
Doing it with all camping makes for some long days, but that might not be an issue for you.
Have fun and good luck!
