Established in 1995, Outpost USA is America's oldest Adventure Travel website. Its thousand pages contain information and photos to help you plan day, weekend or two week trips. Coverage includes hiking, backpacking, canoeing, rafting, skiing, bicycling, amusement parks, history sites, cities, national parks and even Route 66. Details on lodging, restaurants, trails, rivers, slopes, rides, beaches and other features are included.



The destinations radiate out from Kentucky but include trips to all corners of the nation. We especially focus on planning for kids because while we want everybody to experience outdoor adventure, we think it is critically important that kids have the experience and we fear fewer and fewer of them do.

70% of our readers live in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana and another 20% live in states adjacent to those. So our routefinding directions start from there. But 10,000 of our readers each year visit the Outer Banks, 20,000 visit Disney World and 1100 drive out Route 66 to the Grand Canyon.

Unlike many web sites, we never evaluate anything we have not personally experienced, be it trails, rivers, slopes, rides, lodging, restaurants or beaches. And we return to these sites annually, to keep the information as up to date as possible.
This is not a site where readers post their own reviews. While that is an easy way to create content in a hurry, it is not reliable. You don't know who the people are. The internet is filled with restaurants, motels and others paying their employees to go to those sites and post negative reviews of their rivals and glowing reviews of their own businesses. Here, you can get to know us, then read our reviews confident that we are very consistent in what we're looking for and what we dislike.
