Where to go camping near Columbus Ohio? Fishing, and foraging preferred

I'd like to go camping with my son and daughter this summer, somewhere near Columbus Ohio.
We would like to go fishing (a place that is easy to fish at with high likelihood of success), and gathering some wild edibles that are easily identifiable with my wild edible book.

We plan to catch fish, gut it and cook it, and gather safe wild edibles to cook also (and bring some food too).We are new to camping, but we aren't skittish at all. We plan on spending two nights camping. Going to the bathroom outdoors is fine, no electricity is fine. How does one sleep when it's super hot out? Do we need a pad to put beneath the tent so the ground will be soft?
What good places are within a 2 hour drive?
What are your best camping tips to make the experience even better?
What wild edibles are easily found and identified (without poisonous look-a-likes) at that campground?
I have heard chocolate and whiskey are nice. A deck of cards, a whistle, a mirror, bug spray, sunblock.
