Owner description: NOC’s 18,000 square-foot flagship store sits at the downtown Gatlinburg entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. NOC Gatlinburg carries everything necessary to enjoy excursions into the Smokies including our signature “gifts, gear and guidance.” The in-store shopping experience is unique and fun, boasting a swinging rope bridge, a kid-friendly bear cave and a giant fireplace for warming up on cool days. We also help guests plan and book whitewater rafting and other guided Smokies outdoor adventures in-store.

“Delightful”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

We stopped here expecting to find a 'store' but instead it is a lovely solid building with a climbing wall, terrific presentation of goods, and the most friendly and helpful people on earth. We were looking for some outdoor wear for cool weather, and with the help of their staff were able to find what we wanted and it was on sale too! It is rather set up like a very small Bass Pro Shop, but with a more homey feel. There were a number of hikers who were there either on their way to the park or on their way home; never saw so many fancy backpacks! A climbing wall? Woow! Not for us, but for those a bit less aged....

“Great place for gear and info”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

This is a huge store with a lot of camping, hiking gear as well as clothing from brands like Northface. Good selection of clothing items for men, women, and children. They also have fun items for kids, a climbing wall, and quality "souvenirs". All in all, a fun place to visit, they probably have anything you may have forgotten!

“HUGE!”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

This place had everything you could imagine and lots and lots of space. We didn't purchase anything but if you need it, they probably have it.

“There is something for EVERYONE here”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Info on hiking, white water rafting and rappelling all in the same location. This was formerly the Open Hearth Restaurant and NOC did an outstanding job of making it fit into the surroundings. The staff is very friendly and knowledge.

Go and pickup some great hiking great.

Near the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
