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.

After coming to Gatlinburg numerous times we finally went inside this place and WOW! Huge building, lots of stuff to see, shopping, beautiful fireplace and a gorgeous Christmas tree! Merchandise is pricey! Better quality merchandise including the North Face line. Great place to do some leisurely "window shopping"!

had a guy's weekend and we went rafting with NOC. Not a ton of white water but it was still a lot of fun. I've been on faster water up on the Hudson River in NY in the spring. This river was calmer and more family orientated. At the end is a nice restaurant to eat and enjoy. Happened to... More

If your looking for a fun day in a beautiful place, then go here. The rafting was so much fun and our guide entertained us whild keeping us safe as we rafted down the river. KK and Kelsey were great guides. Had we had the time, we would have returned for a second trip.

This is the best outdoor gear and information facility in Gatlinburg. We booked our white water rafting through the store, and the rates are much cheaper at the store than online. And, it was an incredible rafting experience. This is a first class operation, a rock wall for the young ones, and great clothing, gear and accessories.

We went the day before on the Nantahala with NOC and we found it to be a little slow so we booked another trip, we would have liked to go on the Ocowee, but no water releases schedule during our stay, so we drove over to the Pigeon. Mostly class 3 with a couple of class 4's. This river was... More

We are patrons of this store every year. It is always clean, organized, and current with the latest equipment. The store has a fantastic rockwall in the entry for kids and adults to climb. The men's and women's clothes are great. The gear is the latest and greatest. The staff is helpful and friendly. Definitely book your trips through this... More

My wife and I wanted to go white water rafting, and were dazed by all the various offers in the many pamphlets around town. We went here, and a very informative young man arranged a terrific trip for us, and his initial quote was CHEAPER than all the so-called discounts. We will always use this provider when in the Smokies.

This is our second trip down the Pigeon River with NOC and we got a huge discount by being in the NOC store in town to get the tickets. $25.00 per person. Saved a ton of money. The guide, Chris, was awesome, put us right in the middle of the action, turned the raft every which way for equal cold... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting. We had a blast. The guide was very friendly and keep us all going the entire trip down the river. He made it more enjoyable. The entire staff keeps safety first. I wasn't too worried about the little ones falling out. Next time we will try out the pigeon forge tour with class... More
