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?

Copperas Creek Trip Report
« on: March 13, 2017, 01:58:42 PM »

Visited Copperas Creek over the weekend (3/10/17) to find Hopewell and pay respects to the waterfall, given some recent rain fall. I had the GPS coordinates for Hopewell and a printed topo, but still took a moment to locate. Those hidden treasures prefer to remain as such. I took the old logging road just down from Hopewell, bearing North to the large campsite. Lots of deer tracks on that path, it's virtually an animal highway up there. Enjoyed beautiful, sunny hiking weather and only saw a few people. I did not visit Snow, Double Deer, Sandy or Double Copperas Arches, but will save those for next time. :)

The blue water looks like glacier runoff.
