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.

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?

Forest Service encourages safe hunting season
 
WINCHESTER, Ky., Nov. 6, 2017 – The modern gun deer season in Kentucky begins Saturday, and many hunters are expected to seek their game in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

Since the forest is shared among multiple users, Forest Service officials are urging hunters and other forest visitors to take some extra safety precautions.

“The Daniel Boone has five wildlife management areas that provide outstanding places to hunt, but these areas are also enjoyed by hikers, horseback riders and other outdoor enthusiasts during this time of year,” said Forest Supervisor Dan Olsen.

“We want everyone to enjoy a safe recreation experience, including the hunters. For the next couple of weeks, all forest visitors should consider wearing bright colors, such as hunter orange. The color white should especially be avoided, since a glimpse of white could be mistaken for the tail of a white-tailed deer.”

On national forest lands, hunting is allowed in the general forest area outside of developed recreation areas, such as campgrounds and picnic areas. Hunters must also be at least 150 yards away from lakes, roads and trails.

Since the national forest is intermingled with state and private lands, detailed maps are recommended for hunters to determine property boundary lines and other locations. Maps are available at Forest Service office locations.
