If the thought of traditional camping leaves you pitching a fit instead of a tent and cursing your cooler for not keeping your condiments chilled, give the outdoors a chance to prove its greatness via another avenue: a cabin rental.

Escape to Harlan County, Kentucky, where the activities—geared toward nature enthusiasts (hiking and fishing) and adrenaline-seekers (ziplining and off-roading)—outshine the coal mines and the state's famed bluegrass.

Fly through the dense foliage of the Appalachian Mountains on your included two-hour zipline tour with Black Mountain Thunder Zipline. Then slow things down on your included kayak rental—you can even be shuttled upstream so you can cruise down the Cumberland River at your leisure.

The next day, take your jeep or ATVs off-roading on Harlan County Trails or hike through Kingdom Come State Park.

At the end of the day, you'll bed down at Harlan County Campground & Cabin Rentals. Stay for two nights on Sundays through Thursdays in a one- ($142), two- ($239), or three-bedroom cabin ($299). If Fridays and Saturdays are a better time for you to commune with nature, beat the crowds with a two-night weekend stay in August and December 2012 or January and February 2013 in a one- ($171), two- ($249), or three-bedroom cabin ($333).

Besides the inherent advantages of avoiding tent pole-induced profanity and the chance of an errant raccoon in your sleeping bag, the campground's heated and air-conditioned cabins offer bathrooms and kitchens or kitchenettes, and some even have private hot tubs.

In the evening, cook dinner on the barbecue grill, gather 'round the fire for s'mores, and then watch a movie on your living room's flat-screen TV. Who said outdoor adventure and roughing it have to go hand in hand?

  • "Located on the doorstep of Black Mountain Off-Road Adventure Area, the Harlan County Campground is the only campground where no highway travel is required to get to Black Mountain."
