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?

POWELL COUNTY, Ky. —

Three hikers were rescued Tuesday night after getting lost in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge.

Authorities said a mother and two teens got turned around while hiking at the gorge, a popular canyon system located near Lexington.

Search crews said the trio was attempting to hike to Gray’s Arch, but somehow got turned around.

"We went the wrong direction and we didn't find out until we found a really steep hill," Jeremy Moore, one of the three hikers, told our partners at WLEX-TV. "It just kept going up and we knew it wasn't anywhere near."

The lost hikers called for help. Rescue crews at first tried to guide them out over the phone, WLEX reports.

The phone calls were unsuccessful, so two search crews were sent down two different trail systems. Authorities said the hikers were found safe, and guided back to familiar territory under the moonlight.
