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?

Broken Leg Falls?

edit ... nope

haha, liked your edit. Not Broke Leg Falls, but you certainly would end up with a broken leg if you try to navigate around the short ledge to the shelter.

This is in a well-known, and well-trafficked area.

Very intriguing looking spot but I'm clueless of it's whereabouts.

I was afraid it could be tough. A couple helpful points. I did zoom in, so this isn't an iPhone type photo. You'll have to think big picture here. There's a landmark out of frame that would immediately give this away.

 I also believe I'm facing a SW direction. That should help eliminate any north-facing overlooks.

A little wider angle. The giveaway is still out of frame to the right.

It was working yesterday...but I was still clueless.  I know somewhere that looks like that but there is no prominent landmark to the right of it so I don't know.

It's working on my desktop, but not my phone. No idea what's up with it.

Some more clues. If the leaves were gone you could see some hints below the ridgeline. And this particular area is not on forest land, though I am. Also, south of the river, north of the parkway. Need any more hints? :)

You are on a short, off-shoot from the Star Gap Spur Trail, looking SW with the cell tower just out of view, on your right.

I love that spot. Some of the best views there IMO
