Description

Little Lick sits on a long ridgetop north of the Cumberland River, west of the Rockcastle River, and offers plenty of opportunities to see the natural beauty of the forest.

The campsites are improved with tent pads, fire grates, lantern holders, picnic tables, and hitching posts. The campground has a water well with a hand pump for livestock watering only.

This campground was designed for horses, providing access to the Nathan McClure Trail. Loading and unloading areas for horses are located at the end of the trail along with parking spaces for vehicles. If you wish to ride the trail only halfway, there is a pickup point midway along the Nathan McClure Trail. The Nathan McClure Trail is a multi-use trail, which means it is also open to hiking, ATVs and mountain bikes.

Additional Details:

Little Lick Trail #502 was designed with fishing in mind, although it gets very little fishing use. Enjoy a quiet journey along the river to watch and listen to the wildlife. The campground has become a place for hunters to camp and hunt for squirrel, turkey, and deer.

The trail begins at the Little Lick Campground, then runs with the Nathan McClure Trail #530 along Forest Road #816B to the southwest for 1 mile, where both the Little Lick and Nathan McClure trails branch off to the right along a dirt path to the base of the hill near Lake Cumberland. At this point the Nathan McClure Trail bears left and the Little Lick Trail bears right and runs along Little Lick Branch to Forest Road #5149. The trail then turns right again and traverses #5149 to its terminus at the junction of Forest Road #816C.
