Outdoor Adventures

Do you like exploring the outdoors? At and around EKU, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy all that Kentucky has to offer. Our beautiful main campus features several outdoor spaces to study, hang out with friends, or just relax. Looking for a little more adventure? Head down the road to Richmond’s Lake Reba Park for canoeing, kayaking, fishing and walking trails. You’ll also want to check out Red River Gorge – a stunning natural area in the nearby Appalachian Mountains with ample opportunities for camping, hiking, climbing and biking.

Through EKU’s Adventure Programs, you can join a community of students who enjoy outdoor adventures as much as you do. Go on adventure trips, volunteer to improve the environment, rent outdoor equipment and gear, or learn to rock climb on EKU’s indoor climbing wall.
