Owner description: NOC’s 18,000 square-foot flagship store sits at the downtown Gatlinburg entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. NOC Gatlinburg carries everything necessary to enjoy excursions into the Smokies including our signature “gifts, gear and guidance.” The in-store shopping experience is unique and fun, boasting a swinging rope bridge, a kid-friendly bear cave and a giant fireplace for warming up on cool days. We also help guests plan whitewater rafting and other guided Smokies outdoor adventures in-store.

Reviewed 6 December 2011

this place is great. everything you need for your trip to the national park for hiking and camping. the fireplace was great. the store was nice enough to allow free parking and sitting on the porch for the christmas parade.

“Not as expensive as you'd think.”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

We went looking for hats and gloves because the weather got colder than we were expecting. We were expecting the prices to be higher, since this is a tourist town and NOC was selling good gear. The prices were not higher than normal, and they had an execellent selection of outdoor gear. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not pushy in any way.

“Excellent service!!”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

I only wish I could remember the name of the guy who helped us with our fishing questions (maybe James). He was awesome! He spent 20 minutes with us and our kids and didn't care that we didn't purchase anything. He told us the in's and out's of fishing in the park vs the town and he was right on.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

It was crazy overpriced, if you have a sporting goods store around you, buy before you come!
