Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

Has anybody been down Chimney Top Road lately I read there is a very rough section with a deep water hole about mid way but the road is still open?

I was recently down the road for the Rugged Red Trail run. There was a large hole filled with water, but several cars, not 4x4's, are able to navigate it. I'm not aware of it currently being closed, but you can always check the DBNF Facebook page[https://www.facebook.com/danielboonenf/] or their main site in alerts and warnings[https://www.fs.usda.gov/dbnf]. If they close any road, it will be posted there first.

Man, that picture brought back lots of memories.  Climbed that rock many times with my son 25 years ago.  There were many days when there was a que of people going up and down.  We spent nights on the top while backpacking with numerous other backpackers.  One day as we waited in line to climb to the top, we noticed the line hadn't moved for too long of a time.  Upon investigating, I found that a young girl had stopped at the small cave on the way up and would not go up or down.  She was frozen there for better part of an hour.  Finally, I climbed up to her and steadied her feet with my hands and I talked her down.  Took about 15 minutes or so.  She was so scared, she wouldn't talk and never said a word even after we got her down.
 
I'll post something new here shortly.
