Historic downtown Huntsville is home to our largest retail location, with three floors of great gear and clothing for outdoor adventure. 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.

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.

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...

It's nice to know that (as a local to the area) I can go into A.O. and be treated with friendly/knowledgeable staff, great product and reasonable pricing.

We rented a stand up paddle board here for my kids and I to try out. Friendly service and I loved that they were excited that we were all sharing the board and taking turns trying it out. We were given a quick little tutorial and demonstration. Great location right on the river. The only thing I would have liked... More

Thanks for your feed back sfryyz. We're glad you had a great time out on the water paddleboarding. Our all day rate for a standard paddleboard is just $29.98, this allows us to spend the time we did with you, a lower hourly rate would increase the number of shorter rentals, and the amount of work our staff would have...

The staff was very helpful, they waited until we were prepared fully. Gave us clear instructions for kayaking. You can enjoy your kayaking even if you are late (just make sure you leave all their stuff at one place). It's a "must-do" thing if you plan a day in Algonquin.
