August in Southern Kentucky / Tennessee

I'm starting to plan our annual summer family vacation and this year we are thinking about a trip up from Florida to Tennessee and southern Kentucky. I'm definitely open to suggestions and places to stay up there.

We have 12-14 days available so we are thinking we can take two days to get up there, then spend 2-3 nights in the areas recommended.

My thoughts are to do some hiking, horse back riding, white water rafting, visit a cave or two, and anything else three kids (13, 11 and 9) would enjoy. I value the suggestions the community has provided for our past trips so I can't wait to hear about that hidden piece of paradise someone has visited.

Well, you could make part of your trip to Cave City, KY and visit Mammoth Cave. This place is a pretty big tourist trap area, lots to do. Visit Mammoth Cave Canoe and Kayak for kayak/canoeing on the Green River. Owned by good friends of mine Becky and Larry. Tell them I sent you. Their son owns a really nice zipline business there. There are a lot of campgrounds in the area. For the kids, there's a Jellystone right there in Cave City.

Another good place in Kentucky/Tennessee is the Land Between the Lakes area in Western Kentucky. Lots of nature trails, lakes, hiking and camping. Beautiful area also.

There's a wealth of things to do in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area of TN. Great Smoky Mtns NP, Dollywood, Cades Cove & dozens of other attractions. Way more than 2-3 nights worth, but if you narrow down what you want to do, you can take in a few highlights.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
