Backpacking in Tibbet Knob trail with a 10 yr old.


Im gonna try my first backpacking with my 10 year old and hopefully we can set up a tent in a secluded area. I saw some information and recommendation on Big School but almost everyone says it is way too crowded. So I figured we could try Tibbet Knob. Any recommendations on just about where to set up our tent ? maybe before 1 mile into the hike, before having to climb the rock scrambles (I assume it will be difficult to do so with our full backpacks ) or perhaps somewhere near the overlook ?  Also, is there any guidelines of where to set up the camp site or could it be anywhere we find a spot ?

Thanks for the help.
