Enjoying the great outdoors during your trip to the Creation Museum can be as involved as hiking a natural stone arch or ambling around one of the many nearby county parks. Here are seven getaways that let you camp, canoe, hike, bike or just enjoy being outside:

SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. Boone County Parks: Looking for something low-key and inexpensive? The parks in Boone County offer fishing, hiking, canoeing, picnic shelters, playgrounds, playing fields -- you name it. Click on the Boone County Park System’s web page to see which park has what.

2. Map My Ride: If two-wheeled people power is your thing, the Map My Ride website lets you pick and choose from bicycle routes in city and country. There’s a page for Boone County.

3. Patoka Lake State Park:
Located across the Ohio River in Indiana, the park offers campsites, boating, water-skiing and horse riding, among other outdoor activities. Check out the web site for a constant3ly changing list of special events.

4. Licking River: Take a paddle down one of many scenic rivers in and around Northern Kentucky. For example: Thaxton's Licking River Canoe Rental, Falmouth, Kentucky, offers canoe, kayak and raft rentals and trips, for one day or multiple days (with primitive camping or cabin rental) on the Licking River southeast of Cincinnati.

5. Fort Ancient Earthworks and Nature Preserve: A scant hour’s drive northeast gets you to the preserve, Ohio’s first state park. Earthen walls 2,000 years old are what remains of a ceremonial and social gathering place for the Hopewell culture. There’s an interactive museum, hiking trails, scenic overlooks and picnic areas,

6. Hueston Woods State Park: Just north of Cincinnati is Hueston Woods State Park, which, like a good many of Ohio’s state parks, offers lodging, dining, hiking, camping, and other amenities. Though there are fees for lodging and camping and, of course, restaurant bills, general admission to Ohio state parks is free.

7. Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Resort Park: A little more than two hours from the museum by highway, Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Resort Park lie next to each other in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

Red River Gorge is 29,000 acres of cliffs, caves, waterfalls, pools and natural arches, and the Natural Bridge is just that: 65 feet high, 78 feet long, 65 million years in the making. Get there via sky life or hiking trail.
