P3 Concept Envisions 900-acre destination resort in Red River Gorge

A destination resort may be on its way to roughly 900 acres of Eastern Kentucky’s most popular attractions.

Red River Economic Development, a nonprofit group in the charitable arm of the state’s chamber of commerce, the Kentucky Chamber Foundation, is seeking to create a master plan for a resort in the Red River Gorge region.

The envisioned resort would be a public-private partnership and include a 150- to 175-room lodge that would accommodate families and meetings year-round, 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space and wedding venues, among other amenities, according to a concept paper.

But don’t get too excited or too angry about the resort just yet: the concept might not become a reality, and construction wouldn’t start for a few years, said David Adkisson, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

“This it is not a project yet,” Adkisson told The Courier Journal. “There is not a set of blueprints. It is a concept.”
