Everybody working in the NOC that I came encounter with was super patient. My family and I went there for fishing licences and the cashier really took her time in explaining the details and regulations and gave ideas on where to fish. My Goddaughter also climbed the rock climbing wall (easy and difficult side) which gave her a workout she... More

This store has tons of hiking and camping supplies. Hiking boots, sandals, clothing, gear, and pretty much anything else you need to trek out through the wilderness. I just enjoyed looking. The store was set up nicely and even had a little wooden swinging bridge on the top floor.

After many years of service, and many, many miles of trails, my boots gave out on me in Smoky Mountain National Park near Gatlinburg, TN. We had a lot of hiking yet to do, so I needed a repair quickly! Who knew that in the kitsch and neon of Gatlinburg we'd find that and more? NOC had Freesole shoe repair... More

The kids will love their climbing wall in the store. Cost is very reasonable for this. I love their sandals & shoes. Oh, and they have a good assortment of various brands like Patagonia, northface, keens etc. Staff are friendly & helpful. This is a laid back place which we try to visit during each trip to this area. Two... More

I've been here at least twice a year for over 30 years now. There's always something new to see. Right on the river.

Stopped by today just for fun since the park was really foggy. From the moment you walk in the store, it feels like home, or at least the way you want your home to look and feel... great big fireplace with rocking chairs to sit and enjoy it. The staff is very helpful, but laid back. My 8 year-old son... More

NOC, Nantahala Outdoor Center, is a terrific place to get some outdoor clothing or items. Similar to REI & Cabela's, this store provides a wide variety of items in a beautiful wood building. Enjoyed the visit to Gatlinburg and the NOC!

We went there for camping stocking stuffers for my family and ended up watching my kids rock climb. It is such a neat store. They really hit the nail on the head with the design of the place. It looks like a rustic cabin on the outside. Super place to shop.
