  • Great place to pick up some gear and beer. Super cool craft beer section. Wicked friendly and informative staff. Rentals are available and are decently priced
  • This shop in Bryson City has great trail gear, hiking odds and ends, and plenty of local hiking swag to remember your time in this part of the Western North Carolina. Their staff is knowledgeable and supportive... they even helped me facilitate a return (out of state) for a recent item we purchased while visiting there. It's a must-stop-by-spot if you are in the area.
  • The store is very well stocked with a wide range of outdoor equipment at reasonable prices. The folks working there were friendly (not pushy) and knowledgeable. This last summer, my family & I were staying about 50 minutes away on Lake Santeetlah. We wanted to rent two paddle boards to use on the lake but by the time we arrived the store was closing. They stayed open late, helped load and tie down the boards, provided everything we needed and a demo/tutorial on set up and use - all with a pleasant mood. The equipment was top notch. Since returning the equipment in Bryson City wasn't along our route the next day, they made special arrangements to meet us and pick up everything - only asking a small fee to cover fuel cost - very reasonable as it saved us almost two hours on the road. Highly recommend them for equipment rental, advice and gear.
  • Bryson City Outdoors is a great shop! They had a great selection of quality items, good prices, and really great service. I bought a hiking shirt, a hammock, a thermos, and several other outdoor related items. From small misc. goods like bug spray and maps to larger luxury items like hiking boots and hammocks they had a good selection. I had several questions during my shopping spree there about some of their gadgets etc and they were both very helpful. They also had an adorable dog in residence that was friendly and I think their store is pet friendly because i saw a water bowl upfront.
  • Stopped on last summer, very friendly, helpful, no pushy sales, good deals. I like supporting local small business so this is the place to shop.
