This is one of the nicest outfitter type stores that I've ever been too. It is multi-level and has just about everything you could want. It's one of the nicest stores on the strip.

Great selection of items. Not as "tacky" as some of the other shops on the strip. This is a fully fledged outdoor shop.

Great selection of most outdoor gear. However no bike gear?! Great destination for mountain biking and rode biking with Clingmans Dome a climb away. I think they are missing a great market by ignoring this segment.

Emily and Taylor were fantastic! The views were beautiful and it was easy to learn how to zip. My fiance and I were at the Natahala outpost near Bryson City. We cannot wait to go back and do it all over again!

Best place to visit in Gatlinburg! NOC has a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I love all the cool gear they carry. It doesn't feel like a cookie cutter store like REI.
