Life is better outdoors in Northwest Montana with some of the most beautiful country in the world. We’re just down the road from Glacier National Park where you can see grizzly bears and mountain goats and experience dark night skies. Our neighborhood is defined by places like the 1,063,538 acre Bob Marshall Wilderness, and Flathead Lake; so big you can almost imagine you’re standing by the ocean. Ignite your passion for adventure with our world-class brands and selection. Technology meets Mother Nature in our tents, sleeping bags, backpacks and accessories. If you plan on putting it to the test, travel the backcountry with the best gear on the planet from tried and true to the latest in outdoor innovations! Give our pros a few minutes and they can help you shop for outdoor gear from brands like Osprey, The North Face, Therm-a-Rest, Eagles Nest Outfitters, Big Agnes, Coleman, plus they’ll assist you with fitting your backpack, selecting the maps you’ll need and more.
A trip through our camping department is an adventure in itself. Lose yourself in our huge selection of water bottles from Hydro Flask.
