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?

This was from my September Western KY [bonanza] trip.  Sorry for the delay.

This is what I mean by negative insiders (locals). To combat such a cultural dimension, it really requires people like US to go to the location and keep an eye on it.

That is horrendous! Sadly its not the first time I've seen graffiti like that. I was exploring central Kentucky last weekend and encountered a lot of graffiti out in rural places. Tagged trees, rocks, cliffs. Disgusting.


picture from November

This isn't as bad as your arch, but this is also just a small sample of the graffiti at this overlook. Why? Why???

the arch, and Lakiji Rock are examples of the extreme. That overlook you show, is that near Morehead University?

Nope this is the rolling fork river valley near the new WMA.

I thought that looked like the Rolling Fork river valley.  It looks a little like the Scotts Ridge area, but that is at the other end of the county.

Yeah, you're about 9 miles as the crow flies from the Scotts Ridge overlook at this point. I won't say exactly where though, it's clearly seen enough traffic as it is.
