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?

No, Mark W had a nice shot of Buffalo Arch in the last picture. This one is somewhere else.

Thought so; nice shot of Log Arch, by the way. Fog really makes it nice. I only visited Kingdom Come State Park once but was pretty impressed by the views, especially from the Creech Overlook. Beautiful. On a less awesome note, the "campground" at KCSP leaves a lot to be desired, at least in my opinion.

Hint: Along the Sheltowee in the DBNF.

second hint:  The creek submerges the creek bed in this photo, then it "resurges" in the one above.

I thought one of you might have hiked by there:  Resurgence Cave, near McKee, KY.

From Jackson County KY Tourism:  "This Sheltowee Trace hike leads through the War Fork Gorge to Resurgence Cave, where War Fork emerges, flowing cool and clear year-round. War Fork flows through a geologically interesting valley. Much of this stretch is drained by caves underlying the War Fork Valley. War Fork holds water at Turkey Foot Campground, the hike starting point, but is often dry upstream. It again goes underground below Turkey Foot before resuming flow at Resurgence Cave."

Someone else can post a photo of a different spot in KY.

I also think this looks like Lake Barkley from the Trace.

Good guesses, both, but this is not Lake Barkley and not taken from The Trace.

Kentucky Lake, yes, but not the spot or trail.
