I LOVE this store! You can find some good deals (mainly clearance section or big sales). The selection is great on hiking/camping gear. Huge selection ENO products! (Hammock gear). It is at least worth a visit and sits right at entrance to GSMNP.

While the clearance attic was pretty depleted due to the holidays, the rest of the store had great selection and very knowledgable staff. When in Gatlinburg, go to the NOC store for your outfiffer needs!

Not an avid hiker/camper but needed some new boots. NOC had a ton of options but most were quite pricey IMO. These prices are likely the norm for this type of gear but I found some Merrell boots for 40% off that fit the bill...More
