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?

WOLFE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A hiker was rescued in Wolfe County after he fell more than 80 feet Saturday night.

According to Wolfe County Search and Rescue, the man was camping at an overlook on Sky Bridge Road in Devils Canyon, when he tripped and fell off a cliff.

Rescue teams were called out at 10:40 p.m. They were able to get the man to safety just after 2 a.m. Sunday with the help of Powell County Search and Rescue.

Crews say the man has multiple traumatic injuries, but he is expected to recover.

Wow, 80 feet. That man is lucky to be alive. I can't imagine the narrative going through his head during the 2+ second fall into a complete black void.
