Fun thigs to do at RRG

A truly unique experience

The Red River Gorge extents over 5 counties and boasts more than 100 natural sandstone arches found in its 40,000 acres. There are over 70 miles of trails to hike ranging from beginner to experienced, in addition to kayaking and canoeing several miles of the Red River. At the Red River Gorge you will find beauty everywhere you look. It is a great day trip from Lexington, Louisville or Cincinnati and since there is so much to see and do, one day is not going to do it!.

The Gorge Underground

 This is a unique and fun adventure that you just can’t get anywhere else. It is one of the coolest activities I have ever done. No matter how hot it is outside, the Gorge Underground is a cool 55 degrees. Enjoy kayaking in a professionally guided tour year round rain or shine. All of your equipment is provided. You can choose between a kayak or cave-boat tour.

      Creation Falls

Hike to a beautiful waterfall via the Rock Bridge Trail to see these falls. It is a 1.3 mile hike roundtrip. It is a loop trail and I would suggest taking plenty of water with you. I am not an experienced hiker and I was able to complete it without any problem. Creation falls is worth the hike. It is simply breathtaking and it is located at the ½ way point. This trail was maintained well.  This is considered a moderate hiking trail.


This is a must see.  Also known as The Gateway to The Red River Gorge is a must-see when taking a vacation in Red River Gorge. A 900 ft. tunnel located along Rt. 77. Built in the early 1900's, this one lane tunnel once provided railroad transport of timber from the Gorge. It is breathtaking!

          THE SKYLIFT

Located at Natural Bridge State Resort Park this is a fun way to see the Natural Bridge. If hiking isn't for you are you are short on time taking the Sky lift is a great alternative to see natures beauty. Located in the Daniel Boone Natural Forest and Red River Gorge the sky lift takes you on a ½ mile journey through spectacular mountain scenery. Once you at the top you can walk over 900 tons of sandstone molded by nature into a 30-foot wide skywalk.


 Did you really go to Red River Gorge if you didn't go to Miguel's? I think not. Miguel's Pizza has long been the hub of rock climbing culture in the Red River Gorge. If you're craving pizza, this is your best destination. Also, don't worry if it looks packed. There is plenty of covered outdoor seating. It is a great place to relax and unwind after a hike.

"Sally and Jeff thought of it all. The bathroom was great. Overall, it felt like staying in a boutique snappy-chic tent! Just do yourself a favor and book now!"


"The tent itself is very cozy and has a large warm bed with a heated blanket which was great for us as it got a little chilly at night. Great amenities. Bathroom was clean and shower was nice and hot. This tent is also not too far from natural bridge and a nice coffee shop."

- Isaac

"The bed was very comfortable and even had a heated blanket. Also there was a shed that had private restrooms for each tent, toilet, sink, and shower. The location of this was close enough to all our hiking locations and made it is easy to get up and on the road. I’d highly recommend staying here."
