Endless routes for all levels of experience, but I would highly recommend RRO to anyone with little-to-no outdoor climbing experience looking to get started outdoors. Very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly staff!

My colleagues and I were at Red River Adventure to “test the waters.” The workers here were very polite and very helpful. The river makes for a good ride. I had a great time as I watched my team partake of a kayaking race.

My boyfriend and I did a Gym to Outdoor class with RRO. It was great-- everything we could've asked for. The guides with us, Chris and Dan, taught us everything we needed to know, and then some. I always felt very safe, and they were extremely helpful if I had any questions (which, of course, I did). It was also... More

We just spent 6 nights in the Whip-Poor-Will A-frame cabin at RRO. What a cool cabin - we all loved it and it worked out perfectly for our family of 4. The kids stayed in the bedroom downstairs and my husband and I stayed in the loft. The property also had some nice trails and good exploring - the kids... More

Our family vacation this year was a 6 day adventure trip around Kentucky. One of our choices for an adventure was outdoor rock climbing at the "Red". My husband, daughter (11 y/o) and myself have rock climbed indoors for a few years but wanted to experience real rock. We only had a half a day to climb and now wish... More

A group of us wanted to climb at Torrent Falls over Thanksgiving, so we decided to rent a cabin through Red River Outdoors. We reserved the Windy Corner cabin (suitable for 6, but we added a 7th person). The cabin included a full bathroom, a bedroom with a queen bed, 2 queen beds in the loft, and the couch was... More

Red River Outdoors is under new ownership. We take great pride in making sure that the cabins are thoroughly cleaned. The dust and debris situation is no longer an issue. Both portable floor fans and air conditioner work. Due to the nature of the cabin, it is challenging to heat it when it gets cold outside (below 30). The cabins... More

Make sure to buy a trail guide book. The views are spectacular but some of the trail can be quite challenging.

Red River Outdoors is under new ownership. We stop renting the boats out when the water level gets low. It is not an enjoyable trip when you have to drag the boat half of the time. Also, the dragging causes damage to the boats. When the Red River is to low for a float, we do rent out boats and... More

This adventure made the memory for our vacation. We just arrived home from Slade, Kentucky which is only six hours from St. Louis and one hour south of Lexington. We have been getting away with our three teenagers over Thanksgiving weekend for the last few years. We have bouldered before, but never had gear on except for an indoor climbing... More
