NOC just does it right. They have a great selection and friendly knowledgeable staff in this location. Hard to find an outdoor store that has a good selection now days. They also offer 10% discount to Park Association members.

I visited the store while on vacation to purchase new hiking boots. They are located right on the main street and had a great selection of boots at reasonable prices. I bought a pair of Salewas for a hike to the Chimney Tops in the nearby national park. The gentleman who helped me out also brought me a pair of... More

I stop in NOC at least once each trip to the Smokies. I love that I can buy my Route 11 Chips here right in town instead of having to try to find them at a grocery store or market elsewhere. I usually stop by before or after dinner at the Park Grill since it is right next door. The... More

Went in to purchase white water rafting tickets, and enjoyed walking and looking around the outdoor center . We purchased a few items. We actually went back the night before we left to look around again. The staff was very cordial and helpful. St.Bernard Parish, Louisiana(New Orleans area) Jaylynn Bergeron Turner

We had 2 groups Kayla was the guide and our trip. She was fun, knowledgeable and laid-back. Hugh was the guide on the other floating trip. They loved him as well saying he was friendly and funny. A great time was had by all. Loved that NOC was not gimmicky and a tourist trap. They are a true outdoors company... More

This store is Awesome for hiking of all kinds along with anything needed for a Day Hike to the Appalachian Trail! I spent $300.00 in two separate visits! The staff is very knowledgeable and helped with directing us to the trail heads we hiked! It sits just before the Sugarland Visitor Center as you head into the Park!
