Has a bunch of outdoor and camping stuff. Prices seem reasonable. Of course many items can be found cheaper on Amazon, but there you can't get a feel for the products. We stop in every time we are in Gatlinburg.

This is my favorite store in Gatlinburg. For hikers and people who are serious about getting into the park, this is a great stop for certain items on your list of outdoor gear. They have a great AT section of the store with books, trail tags, patches, and everything you could need to know, although the large vertical map that... More

We went rafting today using NOC on the lower pigeon river, it was so much fun! Our raft guide Johnny and his crew were a lot of fun and really made it a good time for our family! They even recommended a good local spot to eat after with some good local brews! Thanks so much for a great time!... More

If you're looking for ANYTHING related to outdoor equipment or clothing, this is absolutely the best outdoor store anywhere! I am an active hiker who is always looking for better gear or even just replacing some, and by far, this stop is one of my favorites. You could be away from this store for years, then come back, and it... More

A stop after one hour drive. Just a regular souvenir shop. Nice wood smell inside the store. Some activities are inside good for kids.

We always stop in here while we are in town. The kids really enjoyed climbing the rock wall. I like their large selection of outdoor gear. They offer a lot. I recommend stopping in.

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
