Backing onto the beautiful Muskoka River, our Huntsville store offers an amazing retail experience. Primarily a specialty outdoor store, with the emphasis on camping equipment, paddle sports, bikes, Nordic skis, snowshoes, and outdoor clothing and footwear. In the summer, the Huntsville store also offers canoe rentals and some outfitting services. This store also carries the region's largest selection of surfwear, water sports (wakeboards, waterskis, towables and water trampolines) and winter sports (alpine skis, snowboards and winter clothing).

I've used the outfitter service in the Park (Algonquin) but this store in Huntsville is my go-to place for outdoor gear. Very good selection of camping, skiing, canoeing, and biking gear. Want stands out is the quality of staff knowledge. Seems the folks who work here, actually get outdoors and walk the walk.

Worthwhile to visit and window shop.

Great observation DecoDoppler, many if not all of our staff do indeed "walk the walk" as you put it. We love many of the adventures and activities that the gear we sell facilitate. If your ever looking for something to do for the day just drop in, we have lots of suggestions and often hold weekly events right at our downtown Huntsville store. Hope to see you back again soon.

Cheers ~ Randy M

This store does rentals for different types of sporting equipment. You can use them off the water behind the store, or rent them for a few days to take back to your cottage. We rented two paddle boards for the day and it was so affordable and so much fun.

Laura V, thank your for the 5 star review. So happy you had a blast paddleboarding from our downtown Huntsville location. We also offer paddleboard rentals out of our Oxtongue Lake (Paddle to Ragged Falls), Lake Opeongo (Paddle Costello Creek & Lake Opeongo) and Haliburton locations. We also hosted some Paddleboard lessons and group nights in 2016 and hope to do again in 2017. Hope to see you back again soon. ~ Randy

Excellent outdoor equipment store where you can get a wide range items ranging from camping related to summer to winter clothes, equipment for biking, swimming, skiing, camping and much much more... We previously had purchased 2 sets of snow shoes that were recommended by staff. We have certainly enjoyed them during the winter months. Staff and very helpful and friendly.
