Red River Gorge Camp & Climb
The Red River Gorge, less than 3 hours south of Cincinnati near Slade, Kentucky, offers world class rock climbing right in our backyard! People literally come from all over the world to sample the pocketed sandstone cliffs that litter the forests in the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Red River Gorge National Geologic Area.

If you've ever been curious about rock climbing, but weren't sure where to begin, this is your chance! We will kick off the weekend with an easy 2.5-hour drive to our campsite at Land of the Arches Campground. We will set up camp, and our trip leaders will cook up some grub while you relax around the campfire. Saturday morning, we will eat breakfast and head out to meet our rock climbing guides from Red River Outdoors. They provide all the gear and equipment and we will provide lunch and snacks, so all you need to bring is a sense of adventure and a camera to capture the fun. Saturday evening we will go back to the campground for some down time and dinner. You may also choose to eat at one of the nearby eateries if you'd prefer - Miguel's Pizza and the Red River Rock House are local favorites. Sunday morning we will eat breakfast, break down camp, and venture out to explore some of the gorgeous hiking trails in the area before traveling back to Cincinnati.
