Pretty store, and fun layout withe the rope bridge. I hope we didn't miss it, but I felt that there was not, if not anything for fishing, mostly items for extreme adventuring, although there was a great clothing section for men, women and children. I did love the downstairs area with all the nature reference and home stuff. I think... More

My husband left one of his jackets at home, so we went to this great place (for the first time, but not the last) to get him some items. Great store, great sale and nice service. We enjoyed just walking around and looking at the store and the items. Lovely décor and great fireplace. He found several items and I... More

Our family enjoyed a great trip down the Little Pigeon with our NOC guide! Find the coupons they do have them and you get a good bit off your adventure. The NOC store is great we enjoyed browsing just a little expensive for us. We will go on another white water rafting trip through them and visit their store again.

We took our three children to NOC to let them conquer the rock wall. Needless to say our daughter (who is five) made it to the top!! (With just a little help). One of our sons made it half way before he decided to come down and the other just barely made it a full body length up. The children... More

More than enough to do .Canspend several days doing activities. Very affordable. Class II ,III and IV rapids. Even a novice can navigate most runs of the river. The guides are the best in the world. They make you feel comfortable, work in teams and are extremely knowledgable . Best zip line lines ever. The staff throughout will treat you... More

We took our 10-year old granddaughter on the Upper Pigeon River with Johnny on 7 August 2013. We had a fabulous time! They give you a good training session beforehand and we felt safe with Johnny. Our granddaughter had the time of her life and we will definitely return with more family members next year. Thanks NOC and Johnny for... More

Our family loved our rafting trips with Nantahala Outdoor Center! We had two groups... the older ones rafted the Upper Pigeon with Johnny, and the younger ones rafted the Lower Pigeon with Kate. Both groups had fantastic experiences!! On the Upper Pigeon, we experience the excitement of Class III-IV rapids, and while the Lower Pigeon was considerably tamer, the guides... More

This is the second time we have utilized the NOC for a white water rafting trip. The first time was in North Carolina on the Nantahala. This trip was a family trip on the Little Pigeon River. Great experience for the family. The trip is for the kids as squirt guns are handed out to all the little ones. Great... More

I'm not sure, maybe this is a good place but when I went there was nothing there but some coffee beans, key chains, and a blow up raft, wasn't worth the walk up the stairs to me, seems big from the outside. but its really small inside.
