In this talk we briefly review both recent and upcoming experimental studies of nucleon structure functions at large Bjorken-x. In particular, preliminary results on the (nearly) free neutron F_2 structure function measured by the BoNuS experiment performed in Hall B at JLab will be discussed, as well as the approved extension of these measurements to even higher Bjorken-x and Q^2 utilizing the upgraded 11 GeV electron beam planned for the CEBAF accelerator. Estimations of the quality of structure function data, and both flavor and valence/sea separated parton distributions, which would be possible utilizing a hydrogen target in a high flux neutrino beam will also be discussed.
