As you might expect, Kentucky offers hundreds of miles of horse trails throughout the state. And what better way to explore than grabbing your horse for an adventurous weekend of camping in Kentucky? Daniel Boone National Forest and Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area both offer horse-friendly campgrounds, as do five of the state parks. If you're heading to the Kentucky Derby, stay at a Hipcamp or campground in the Louisville area. Of course not everything in Kentucky centers on the equestrian life. Explore underground at Mammoth Cave National Park and Carter Caves State Resort Park, or visit Cumberland Falls State Resort Park for a chance to see the “Niagara of the South.” If you’re into climbing, you’ll want to visit Red River Gorge at Daniel Boone National Forest, which is consistently ranked as a top global climbing destination.
