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?

KYhiker40, you were first.  So if Doogal40 confirms the location, it's your post.

These are close to each other.  One is trail side and the other can be heard from the trail but not seen unless you look very carefully.  Can you name the trail area where these are found?

No.  Right Trail, wrong area.

Directions:  Both waterfalls are mainly wet water waterfalls.  When hiking uphill, the second waterfall, with a drop of about 30 feet, is found off to your left, across a ravine and can be heard but not seen because of the leaf cover.  It drains down into the ravine.  A bit further up the trail is the first waterfall, with a drop of about 10 feet, just to the left of the trail.  That waterfall is along the path of the creek that drains into the ravine.  Above the waterfall the trail runs directly beside the creek for 10-15 yards.  If you are hiking downhill then everything is in reverse.  Clear as mud?  Name the location.

Hint:  The trail section passing the waterfalls is along an old railroad bed used for timber removal.

So if I got the clues correct, it is along the Trace, an old railroad bed and small watersheds? I'm guessing the have to be somewhat small watersheds since I don't recognize them. Must be off my radar.

Yes onesmansadventure: along the sheltowee (a well traveled section), an old railroad bed, and beside a named watershed.  Don't over think this one, it's not meant to be that difficult.
