If I were an avid kayaker I would give this 5 stars as that is the primary focus here. We stopped in with no reason other than to check it out. We love the outdoors and mainly hiking and camping. They have a few packs and hiking supplies upstairs. Overall I felt the prices here were just too high. Again,... More

Had a great visit, talked about options and Matt made a few suggestions that cost less than what I thought we needed. He explained how he'd set it up, ordered it for us and... More

My boys love Patagonia, North Face and those kinds of winter wear, as they both go to school in the Carolinas. We take them shopping here frequently when they are home, and they have some GREAT sales too. The staff is super friendly; nice to support a local small business owner.

Dick and Matt were super helpful in helping me find a great backpack for a trip I took to the uk. I had done loads of research and thought I knew what I wanted, but with the knowledgable staff I ended up going with a pack I hadn't even thought of....and thank goodness!!! The pack was just what I needed... More

John S. was great! He communicated with us prior to having us drive up and wanted to find out what we were interested in and worked with us with everything from the kayaks, paddles, lessons and life jackets. They will work with you to help you get what you want! I tried out the kayak with 4 different paddles and... More

Went here through a Meetup for a first time paddle boarding lesson. They have a small lake behind the store where they teach you how to properly and safely go paddle boarding. The instructors took the time to show correct form, balance, and how to properly paddle. Would love to do this again some time. Thanks to Matt, Kate, and... More
