The only way you are going to traverse the back roads and trails around the Smokies is if you have very good maps with elevation. They have them. This store is a browsing paradise. You can book an NOC white water rafting experience at the store, although the actual location is a ways out of town. Their rafting tours are... More

Very large selection of camping, hiking, and outdoors gear. If you need it, they have it. Located at the end of town.

Had planned on doing this later in the week, but Sunday was the last day of the season. Great day and great weather for the rafting. Our guide was Mike. He was very knowledgable about the area and did a wonderful job with making us feel at ease on the water. Super job. PS the store has a lot to... More

We had the best time on the water with Mike! Short drive from Gatlinburg another short bus ride to the let in and over an hour on the river! We had a blast!!! Thanks NOC!

My wife and I have been on many rafting trips with NOC and this latest one did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, Perry, our guide, was wonderful and told us all about plants and other interesting things as he guided us. The store in Gatlinburg is fun to visit. Something for everyone here. If you are a first... More

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
