Thank you to all that have come out to experience what we offer here at Boone Creek! The word is spreading and we couldn’t do it without your adventurous spirits and awesome feedback. With one year under our belt we are feeling excited and inspired for the next. In this first year we have received the 2018 Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor with ALL 5 star reviews, been featured on several local news stations including Lex 18’s Live with Lee and Hayley, WKYT’s Out and About with Deann Stephens, and ABC 36’s Midday KY. You might have caught us at our booth at the Lexington Legends Stadium, the annual Reforest the Bluegrass event, the Daniel Boone Festival, and more! Stay tuned – we are just getting started.


There is something new to experience in Lexington!  We are excited to offer great group rates and packages perfect for your company’s next retreat or outing.  From a full day of teambuilding, a picnic by the creek, to a large reservation Canopy Tour, we will accommodate to fit your needs!

Along with our Canopy Tour, we offer a hiking trail that follows the creek through the gorge, past towering limestone cliffs, wildflowers, old growth trees, and a spectacular waterfall.   We have ample indoor space for programming, activities and relaxation.  A lodge is nestled on Boone Creek with plenty of indoor and outdoor deck space for groups as well as a smaller cabin with a spacious outdoor deck.  Picnic tables, benches and campfire rings are also available.

We invite you to come see the property and showcase all there is to offer your group.  Whether you are looking for a fun place to boost team morale, host team building workshops, or just a new destination to send corporate guests who are visiting central Kentucky, Boone Creek Outdoors is a perfect spot for it all.
