Watch out Big Box outdoor retailers. I have discovered a store that gives their customers exceptional 'old fashion' service. Joseph took the time to listen to 'what' I wanted in a hiking boot then he presented the benefits of boots that would be the best matches. My husband and I had a fun time, and whoever says that about shoe... More

We love to stop at the NOC when we are in the park hiking to check out new gear, or just to walk around and check everything out. The employees are very helpful, and the store is always clean, and tidy. They also have a ton of quality gear, and carry hard to find (in stores) Patagonia.

We love this store! We go by every time we are in town, not necessarily to buy anything (which we usually end up buying something anyway), but to just wander around. It's so cozy and unlike any other store around. We are not outdoorsy people, but we love to go in this store and explore. They have something for everyone... More

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
