The beautiful Red River Gorge area in the heart of Kentucky is a prime destination for a relaxing, nature vacation. Here, you can bask in the refreshing air, take in the stunning views, and explore the surroundings with a variety of activities all at your leisure. Stay in a comfortable cabin from Red River Gorge Cabin Company to experience this incredible setting to the fullest! Their selection of cabins are readily equipped with modern amenities such as kitchens, hot tubs, and fireplaces. You can choose from their three locations: off-the-grid cabins in the Red River Gorge Geological Area, close to the Natural Bridge State Park and Mill Creek Lake, or secluded woodland cabins that are a ten minute drive to the Red River Gorge. No matter what you choose, you will love the calm natural environment and the easy access to outdoor adventures. Explore the area on an invigorating hiking trip, spend an afternoon bird-watching for species such as woodpeckers, kinglets, and American goldfinch, or head to Mill Creek Lake to cast a line for bass, catfish, trout and much more. There's something here for everyone to enjoy!
