The London Ranger District is best known for Laurel River Lake, a 5,600-acre reservoir. The district contains two state designated Kentucky Wild Rivers, the Cumberland and Rockcastle, and a portion of Lake Cumberland.
Two wildlife management areas, Cane Creek and Mill Creek, are popular for hunting. The Whitman Branch Shooting Range provides an excellent location for practicing target skills. Cliffs line the Rockcastle and Cumberland River, providing many scenic miles of hiking opportunities.
